50 Cent denies attacking ex-lover
Rapper and actor 50 Cent has pleaded not guilty to domestic violence and vandalism charges involving an ex-girlfriend who is the mother of his child.
His lawyer entered the plea in Los Angeles. The performer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was silent during the hearing.
He was charged after Daphne Narvarez reported that he had damaged her Toluca Lake home and kicked her during an argument.
Police said property worth 7,100 US dollars (£4,600) was destroyed.
Jackson was ordered to return to court on September 4 and told to stay away from Ms Narvarez, not make calls to her, and to get rid of his weapons.
