NEW YORK, April 24 (UPI) -- A model and actress who worked with 50 Cent on several music videos, including "Big Rich Town," has slapped the rapper with a defamation suit worth millions of dollars.

Sally Ferreira has claimed in a lawsuit that 50 Cent accused her of leaking photos from the "Big Rich Town" shoot to gossip cites. On March 27, he posted a photo of Ferreira to Instagram with the caption, "WARNING: Do not attempt to work with this thirsty video b****."

He also claimed that Ferreira pretended to be in a relationship with him.

"She sent photos Of the video shoot to Media takeout Saying I’m in a relationship With her Can anyone say RESHOOT," a post read.

“Without undertaking any investigation whatsoever, Mr. Jackson falsely accused Ms. Ferreira of being the source of the MediaTakeOut.com coverage by posting a picture of Ms. Ferreira on his personal Instagram account with the following text superimposed over her image,” Ferreira's complaint reads, according to documents obtained by the NY Daily News.

The lawsuit goes on to say that Ferreira "enjoyed a good reputation in the industry" before the "In Da Club" rapper made his public accusations.

“As a direct and proximate result of the defamatory posting and the subsequent media fallout and negative publicity surrounding Ms. Ferreira, as of the date of this filing, all three [of her ongoing] projects have been put indefinitely on hold,” the complaint adds.

The posts have since been removed from 50 Cent's account.
