A settlement has been reached between 50 Cent and a Miami-based spa in connection with a lawsuit regarding false penis enlargement claims.
Billboard reports 50 and plastic surgeon Angela Kogan’s company Perfection Plastic Surgery & MedSpa have “reached an agreement in principle to settle Mr. Jackson’s claims” and were “in the process of preparing an agreement to finalize and memorialize” a deal.
The hip-hop mogul sued Kogan in September, claiming the surgeon took a photo of his penis and used the picture to promote Perfection Plastic Surgery, thereby implying that Fif had underwent penis enlargement surgery.
“Defendants’ actions have exposed Jackson to ridicule, caused substantial damage to his professional and personal reputation, and violated his right to control his name and image,” 50’s attorneys said at the time.
Kogan subsequently denied the allegations, though her attempt at getting the case dismissed was overruled in December.
“As the proverbial saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words,” Judge Robert N. Scola, Jr. wrote in his ruling. “This one in particular depicts a worldwide celebrity next to Kogan with MedSpa’s name repeated all throughout the background. The promotional value is evident.”
It isn’t the first time 50 has agreed to a settlement in connection with the case.
In February, Fif reached an agreement with the Shade Room after he sued the outlet for spreading rumors about the alleged procedure.
“[50 Cent] by and through his undersigned counsel, hereby gives notice that he has reached an agreement to settle with Defendant The Shade Room… in the above captioned action,” the lawsuit read. “Jackson and TSR are in the process of executing their respective obligations pursuant to the agreement and will file a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal.”
