The singer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, appeared in a courtroom in Van Nuys, California on Monday morning. Fiddy is facing five years in jail and up to $46,000 in fines if convicted.
Jackson must keep at least 100 feet away from his accuser, named in court as Daphne Narvaez, and must not attempt to contact her or any family members while the case is active.
A Los Angeles County judge also ordered the rapper to submit any weapons in his possession to law enforcement within the next 24 hours.
The charges against Curtis Jackson stem from a police report filed by Narvaez claiming that the rapper destroyed property at her Toluca Lake condo on June 23.
Narvaez says she locked herself in her bedroom only to have Jackson break open the door and injuring her by kicking her.
Police estimated about $7,100 in damage to the home.
Narvaez, who models under the name Daphne Joy, told police she had been in a three-year relationship with 50 Cent. They have a baby together.
The rapper left court this morning, with cameras catching him being served legal paperwork regarding child custody in the case.
50 Cent has not acknowledged having a child with Narvaez, though he does have a 16-year-old son named Marquise with his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins.
Last month, City Attorney Mike Feuer said in a statement, “Regardless of perceived celebrity or notoriety, domestic violence is a serious crime, and alleged perpetrators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by this office”.
Curtis Jackson is scheduled to appear in court on September 4.
50 Cent has starred in several movies including the semi-autobiographical “Get Rich or Die Tryin'”, the same title of his 2003 album.
