2:25 PM PT -- 50 Cent's attorney has released a statement saying the rapper plans to fight the judgement hoping to "reduce the size of the award."
The jury announced the judgment in NYC on Friday. 50 already got hit with a $5 million judgment in the case earlier this month ... which lead to him filing for personal bankruptcy.
He told the jury this week that he was worth less than $5 million -- in an effort to get some leniency. Seems like it worked ... since Lastonia Leviston was seeking $15 mil in punitive damages.
