Rapper 50 Cent has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to vandalism, in a domestic violence case involving his ex-girlfriend.

The music star, whose real name is Curtin Jackson, was on Monday, Oct. 28, was also ordered to pay the woman $7,100 as a restitution fee -- which he already has -- and a total of $2,390 in fines. He was also told to attend 52 weeks of domestic violence classes, complete 30 days of community service and was barred from possessing firearms, according to a statement from prosecutors, obtained by OTRC.com.

The rapper had previously pleaded not guilty to destroying items in his ex-girlfriend's Los Angeles-area condo during an argument in June. She had accused him breaking down a door and kicking her. As part of his plea deal, a domestic violence charge was dropped on Monday, the Associated Press reported.

The rapper must also keep away from the woman, who has already obtained a restraining order against him.
