50 Cent has yet to respond to the claims
Rapper 50 Cent is being sued over claims he unlawfully distributed a homemade sex video over the internet.
Lastonia Leviston filed legal action in Manhattan claiming unauthorised use of her name or image and emotional distress caused by the video's release.
Ms Leviston claims she made the private video with a lover in 2008.
She alleges that 50 Cent posted the video on his website last year after blurring out the lover's face - and editing himself into it as narrator.
Ms Leviston, who is based in Florida, claims the rapper - real name Curtis Jackson - appears in the video wearing a wig and robe and can be heard narrating throughout.
Lawyers for Mr Jackson have yet to comment, according to the news agency AP.
