50 Cent Dropped from MLB All-Star Bash After Domestic Violence Charge

Facebook.com/50CentDespite denying the allegations, 50 Cent is feeling the backlash from being charged with domestic violence.

The rapper has been dropped from Major League Baseball’s upcoming All-Star Bash in New York City, according to TMZ, after being charged with domestic violence and vandalism in Los Angeles last week.

Initially scheduled to perform at the Roseland Ballroom on July 14, 50 Cent has been taken off the bill.  His likeness has been replaced in the promotional art for the event by a promise of "surprise performances," according to TMZ. 

As previously reported, 50 Cent is being accused of kicking the mother of his child, Daphne Joy -- who identified herself to CNN through a representative on Friday.  The rapper is also accused of trashing her Toluca Lake, CA condo, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.  He faces five misdemeanor charges and up to five years in jail if convicted.  He's due in court on July 22.
