The rapper 50 Cent settled a domestic violence case and pleaded no contest to vandalizing his former girlfriend's condominium in Toluca Lake.

Born Curtis Jackson, the rapper pleaded no contest to one count of vandalism and was placed on 36 months of summary probation and ordered to do 30 days of community service, attend one year of domestic violence counseling and pay restitution to the victim of $7,100. He must also comply  with a stay-away protective order from his ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of one of his children.

Jackson allegedly began destroying the woman's property during an argument June 23. When she locked herself in her bedroom, Jackson kicked open the door and kicked her, authorities said. He was charged with five criminal counts, including one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism.

Jackson faced up to five years in jail in connection with the incident. The woman had previously been in a three-year relationship with Jackson and they have a child together, according to prosecutors.

Officers responding to the scene observed broken chandeliers and broken furniture throughout the woman’s condo, authorities said. Officers also reportedly saw a ransacked bedroom closet with the woman’s clothes thrown all over the floor as well as a broken television and lamp. The rapper was not at the scene when officers arrived
