In the accompanying video, Mari is packing up her Louis Vuitton luggage and telling her friend, “Didn’t you hear? I have a warrant out for my arrest.” She also writes “FAKE NEWS” across the original article published by The Blast that stated she was a wanted woman.
50 is also depicted as Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent character with the words “I’m Thirsty For Attention” and “I’m sad inside” written in each corner.
The veteran Hip Hop artist was awarded $30,000 in Mari’s case against him. The money is intended to cover a portion of 50’s legal costs.

A judge has reportedly issued a bench warrant for Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood personality Teairra Mari.
The Blast reports Mari was expected to show up at a Los Angeles courthouse on Tuesday (April 23) for a hearing related to the 50 Cent case — but she was a no-show. Consequently, the judge issued the bench warrant in the amount of $5,000.
50 set up the hearing to dig into Mari’s finances in an attempt to collect the $30,000 he was awarded in the original revenge porn lawsuit. Mari was suing the Power exec for allegedly leaking her sex tape.
She accused 50 and her ex-boyfriend, Akbar Abdul-Ahad, of engaging in a plan to sexually objectify, threaten, intimidate, humiliate and degrade her. Mari said Abdul-Ahad logged into her Instagram account and posted the sexually graphic video, which featured “ejaculate” on her face.
50 then re-shared the video on his Instagram page, going as far to apply a “black and white” filter to highlight the color contrast of semen on Mari’s face. He added his signature hashtag, #getthestrap,” which Mari said could have encouraged his fans to hurt her.
The judge dismissed all claims against the Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ OG and concluded Mari must pay his attorney fees.
50 wanted her to pay his entire $161,660.15 legal bill, but the judge didn’t agree to his demands. Instead, she was ordered to pay $30,618.
