(Newser) – Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson might be going to jail after allegedly harming his baby mama and trashing her California condo. Police say they answered a call at the home of Jackson's ex on June 23, and arrived to find the woman injured and the property ransacked, with the bedroom overturned and chandeliers, furniture, and a television broken, People reports.

The woman, whom police did not identify, says she locked herself in her bedroom when Jackson began trashing the home during an argument, USA Today reports. She says Jackson kicked in the door, and then kicked her. The woman and Jackson once had a three-year relationship, and had a child together. Jackson will be arraigned later this month on one misdemeanor count of domesic violence and four misdemeanor counts of vandalism, and faces up to five years in prison. (Read more 50 Cent stories.)
