50 Cent is suing a Miami doctor over allegations that she used a photo of the rapper to falsely suggest he had penis enlargement surgery to promote her plastic surgery clinic.
On Friday (September 16), lawyers for the rapper — real name Curtis James Jackson III — filed a lawsuit alleging Jackson “graciously consented” to taking pictures with Angela Kogan, only to find out later that the “unscrupulous business owners” repeatedly used the image to promote their practice, Perfection Plastic Surgery and MedSpa.
According to court documents, the 47-year-old rapper claims things started when Kogan and her companies posted the photos to social media.
However, Jackson says things took a “disturbing turn” last month when Kogan allegedly manipulated an article The shadow room who “shockingly” made the “false suggestion” that he had undergone penis enlargement surgery.
While the article, titled “Penis Enhancements Are More Popular Than Ever and BBLs Are Dying: Cosmetic Surgery CEO Angela Kogan Talks About It,” doesn’t directly say that Jackson had the surgery, it reportedly writes that he was a “client.”
And with an edited collage of Jackson and Kogan alongside a faceless man undergoing penis enlargement as the article’s thumbnail, the rapper’s attorneys say the “implication is clear.”
Since the article was first shared, Jackson says it has been subjected to “salacious, lascivious and sexually objectifying comments from members of the public.”
His attorneys added, “Kogan should have known that this could lead to vulgar and sexually charged comments about Jackson and his body, especially given the way black men have been and continue to be sexualized and fetishized throughout US history.”
Jackson is seeking a legal order to ban Kogan from further use of the photo, in addition to potential “millions of dollars” in damages from her “malicious” conduct.
“Jackson never had any such sexual enhancement procedure, he never underwent any defendants’ plastic surgery, and he never consented to the commercialization and publication of the photo,” his attorneys wrote. “The actions of the defendants ridiculed Jackson, caused significant damage to his professional and personal reputation, and violated his right to control his name and image.”
