50 Cent accuses his ex of requesting millions of dollars to delete her post.

Back in March, it was revealed that 50 Cent's ex and mother of his son Sire, Daphne Joy, was named in Rodney "Lil Rod" Jones' lawsuit against Diddy. Lil Rod accuses her of accepting monthly payments from the Bad Boy Records founder for sex work, which she denies. After the news came out, 50 Cent was quick to react, clowning her on social media for the allegations.

She later responded to this with a lengthy Instagram Story, shutting down the sex work allegations. "Let's put the real focus on your true evil actions of raping me and physically abusing me," she wrote. "You are no longer my oppressor and God will handle you from this point on. You have permanently damaged the last hope I had for you as a father to preserve our family with these last and final false claims made against me."

50 Cent later issued a statement in response to the accusations. "The disturbing allegations in the sworn pleadings recently filed in a court case related to Daphne Joy the mother of my twelve year old child, has required me to take all necessary legal actions to protect my son Sire," a rep told XXL at the time. "The most recent false and baseless accusations by Daphne Joy are clearly in response to my decision to seek sole custody of my son. My son Sire is my main priority and keeping him in a safe environment is my only focus at this time."

Now, it's been revealed that he's suing Daphne Joy for alleged defamation. According to TMZ, he accuses her of making the allegations because he decided to seek sole custody of their son. He claims that her accusations have damaged his reputation, custody case, and more. 50 Cent's lawyers sent Daphne a letter in April demanding a retraction, which she reportedly refused. Instead, she allegedly asked for millions of dollars and for Fif to drop his custody suit in exchange for her post to be removed. He called this "clearly extortive."
