50 Cent pays out for assault on photographer21/02/2008 - 14:35:36
50 Cent has been ordered to pay an undisclosed figure after assaulting a photographer.
The star - real name Curtis Jackson - attacked the New York Post's deputy photo assignment editor Jim Alcorn in 2003.
Alcorn filed a lawsuit claiming he was assaulted after taking a photograph of the star as he left a jewellery shop. He sustained neck and jaw injuries.
Alcorn's lawyer Sanford Rubenstein tells New York gossip column PageSix: "A settlement was reached and all parties are satisfied."
A spokesman for Jackson says: "It's a legal issue that's been settled."
