50 Cent’s lawsuit with Love & Hip Hop star Teairra Mari still isn’t quite over yet.

Mari appeared on The Breakfast Club on Tuesday morning and explained how even though she was ordered to pay Fifty $30,000, “he didn’t win the lawsuit.” Mari described how her lawyer ended up dropping the case because it looked like Mari and her ex-boyfriend Akbar Abdul-Ahad were in cahoots. “[My lawyer] was like, ‘I can’t represent you no more because it just looks crazy,’” Mari said. “On top of that, I couldn’t get anybody else to pick the case back up, so basically, the case was just going on. So the judge was like, ‘Okay, hey you lost. You gotta pay him his legal fees.’ That’s why I have to pay 50.”

When asked if suing 50 Cent was worth it and if she’d do it over again, she said, “Yep, I would have but I wouldn’t have believed Akbar. I wouldn’t have gone to meet him—I wouldn’t have like tried to hear him out. Like I would have just changed my number then, and then just proceeded with my case.”

She was also asked if she’s ever tried to reach out to 50. “No, for what?” she said. “Y’all know Curtis a mess…he makes me laugh. He tickles me…he’s very hilarious. He’s actually been bringing out some of my funny side.” In April, Mari trolled 50 with a video of her paying him 50 cents at a Western Union.

“I’m gonna play the petty games 'cause at first I wasn’t. I let him drag me for at least a month. And then I’m like, ‘You know what, fuck you,’” she said.

In May 2018, Mari filed a lawsuit against 50 and Ahad for posting explicit photos and videos of her. Mari claimed Ahad hacked her Instagram account to post revenge porn because she didn't want to be in a polyamorous relationship with him. 50 later posted the video to his own account. An L.A. judge then reportedly dismissed all claims against 50 Cent, ordering Mari to pay him $30,618.

Now, 50's once again accusing Mari of dodging his invoice and asking for an additional $25,000 from her. After Mari failed to turn up to court last month, it was reported that a warrant for her arrest was issued, although she later called it “fake news.” That's not entirely true, though, as the judge decided to hold the warrant until sometime later this month.

She also revealed to The Breakfast Club that she has a new EP dropped next month called Wanted and is currently working on her own reality show.
