LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Rapper and actor 50 Cent faces arraignment on charges that he attacked his ex-girlfriend and trashed her condo.

The hearing for the singer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, was scheduled for Monday.

If convicted, the “In Da Club” singer faces up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.

The woman told police that during a June 23 argument, Jackson began destroying property at her Toluca Lake condo before she locked herself in a bedroom. She says Jackson kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing injury.

Police estimated about $7,100 in damage to the home.

The woman told police she had been in a three-year relationship and has a baby with Jackson, who has referenced drug dealing and violence in many songs.
