LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Rapper 50 Cent pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to domestic violence charges related to an alleged June altercation with his ex-girlfriend.

Model Daphne Joy, who has said she is the mother of the recording artist's second child, has accused him of attacking her and destroying property in her apartment.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has never publicly acknowledged fathering a child with Joy.

TMZ said a judge granted Joy's request for a protective order at Monday's hearing and instructed the hip-hop star to surrender all of his firearms.

The musician is due back in court next month, the celebrity news website said.
