50 Cent Settles Suit With Taco Bell

58937293Rapper 50 Cent will cost you more than a taco.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, yesterday settled the lawsuit he filed against Yum! Brands’ Taco Bell, claiming the fast-food chain used his name to promote its tacos and burritos without his permission.

The terms of the deal were confidential, but he was asking for $4 million in damages.

Jackson’s suit, which was filed in federal court in Manhattan last year, argued that Taco Bell used Jackson’s name and trademark without his authorization to promote its low-cost menu items.
