The entertainment site reports the Los Angeles City Attorney said the rapper is accused of causing $7,100 in damage during the incident that occurred on June 23. The alleged incident took place in 50 Cent’s home in Toluca Lake, Calif. When the cops arrived on the scene, the unidentified woman, who was his girlfriend for three years, reportedly told them she had gotten into an altercation with the entertainer and locked herself in the bathroom.

She claims 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, became so angry that he kicked down the door and kicked her. The 37-year-old rapper is also accused of breaking chandeliers, a TV, a lamp and other furniture. He also allegedly ransacked the bedroom closet during the altercation.

Officials say 50 left the scene before the cops arrived. In total, the rapper has been hit with five charges, including 1 count misdemeanor domestic violence and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism. It is not clear what exactly caused the altercation.

“Regardless of perceived celebrity or notoriety, domestic violence is a serious crime and alleged perpetrators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by this office,” City Atty. Mike Feuer said according to the Los Angeles Times. “We will continue to look out for the safety of all victims of domestic violence and seek justice for the alleged crimes.”

If he is convicted on all five counts, 50 faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He due in court July 22.
