50 Cent: Defense In Penis Enlargement Lawsuit Blames Shadow Room

50 cents has been accused of blaming the wrong entity for spreading false information that he allegedly underwent a penis enlargement procedure.

Solicitors for Angela Kogan – the MedSpa owner named as defendant in the 50’s ongoing trial — has countered the rapper’s claims by pointing the finger The shadow room instead.

According to court documents obtained by AllHipHopthe defense claims that rumors of his alleged procedure were spread because the gossip outlet published a photo of Fif and Kogan together.

“The plaintiff is not entitled to damages against the defendant, since the plaintiff has failed to plead properly against the infringing party; namely The shadow room,” the documents say. “The shadow room is the author of the article, and has pulled the image from Kogan’s social media without Kogan’s permission or consent.

It continued:The shadow room is the publisher of the article, and the plaintiff has wrongfully used the actions of The shadow room to the defendant.”

The Queens legend filed her lawsuit in September, alleging that Angela Kogan and her Perfection plastic surgery & MedSpa used a photo 50 took at the establishment to suggest he was a client receiving some type of penile procedure.

Kogan denied the allegations against her and her company and wasted no time asking to dismiss the case, arguing that 50 Cent was a client and consented to the use of the image as payment for the work he allegedly did.

In addition to her claims, Kogan also argues that the Instagram post with the photo of her and 50 was intended to thank the rapper for visiting her office and not actually endorse it. The G-Unit boss, on the other hand, said he only agreed to take the photo because he thought Angela Kogan was a fan.

In recent filings, the service provider and her lawyers have also argued that 50 owes no compensation because he is not the rightful owner of the image in question. Kogan further states that while she was interviewed by The shadow roomthe site chose to use the photo of her and 50 Cent without her permission.

The defense previously asked federal judge Robert N. Scola, Jr. to dismiss the lawsuit entirely based on her claim that the photo was used as a form of payment. Judge Scola didn’t buy it, calling her argument “simply wrong” and choosing not to throw out the case.

“As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words,” Scola wrote. “This one in particular depicts a worldwide celebrity alongside Kogan with MedSpa’s name repeated throughout the background. The promotional value is clear.”

He added: “Read in the light most favorable to Jackson, the defendant’s ‘thank you’ serves as humble bragging. It is self-promotion,” while adding a definition of the word humbling to the ruling.

A trial date had been set for July 3, 2023, but there is still a chance that the parties involved will reach a settlement before then.
