50 Cent might owe a whole lot more money than his namesake.

The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, has been charged with domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy, TMZ reports. He allegedly kicked her and destroyed $7,100 worth of property in her condo in Toluca Lake, Calif., in an incident on June 23.

According to officials, the police were called to the scene after Joy locked herself in the bathroom after an altercation with 50 Cent, and he kicked down the door and kicked her. He left the scene before the police arrived. 

Jackson has been charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence and four counts of misdemeanor vandalism, and if convicted on all counts he could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He is due in court on July 22.

Joy, a model, dated 50 Cent for three years, and according to TMZ, shares a child with the rapper. Looks like this could get messy.
