Rapper 50 Cent (born Curtis James Jackson III), 47, and his ex, Vivica A. Fox, 58, have been broken up for over 20 years, but the two still seem to have unresolved issues. Vivica’s latest project, The First Lady of BMF: The Tonesa Welch Story, was recently greenlit by BET+. After hearing the news, Fifty took to Instagram to share his thoughts.
50 Cent’s Instagram Post
In his Instagram post on Mar. 30, 50 Cent expressed his disapproval of the project, saying, “This should say 263 not BMF, @southwest263 What the f*** is this man! Vivica ugh, so you’re not gonna ever leave me alone hun? And what the f*** is judge Mathis doing in this mix? I’m done, I’m done with all of you n*****. LOL #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”
Vivica A. Fox’s Response
The project, directed by Fifty’s 58-year-old ex, is inspired by the true life story of Tonesa Welch, who also inspired La La Anthony‘s character MarKaisha Taylor in STARZ’s show BMF.
Vivica responded to 50 Cent’s post on her own account the next day, saying, “TGIF Dawlings! Waking up to my ex @50Cent showing #1STLADYOFBMF support! Don’t worry dawling we got this! We gonna tell @firstladytonesa a REAL story! Thanks! #Director #BlackGurlMagic #GurlPower #FILMLIFE.”
Reactions from Fans
After the messy exchange between the two exes, their fans flooded the comments with their reactions to their ongoing beef. One fan noted on Fifty’s post, “Tonesa say they used her likeness, and she ain’t getting paid for it so she’s ready to tell her story her way. Can’t be mad at that,” while another chimed in, “This movie is about to be amazing!!!!”
In Vivica’s comments section, many admirers couldn’t help but call out her ex for still keeping tabs on her. “Awwww he’s still watching your every move Queen! Gotta love it!!”, a fan wrote, while another added, “Let him know, his acknowledgment of it is still support, we want to see her real story anyway.”
The G-Unit Films founder is likely to be upset about his ex’s project, as he is one of the producers of BMF at STARZ. The series tells the story of the history of the Black Mafia Family’s Demetrius and Terry Flenory, who “become powerful figures in a multi-state drug and money laundering organization.”
The series stars Demetrius Flenory Jr., 22, actor Da’Vinchi, rapper Kash Doll, and more. The show was released in Sept. 2021, with Season 2 premiering on Jan. 6. 50 Cent and his girlfriend, Cuban Link, attended the premiere together.
Their Previous Relationship
The Set It Off actress and Fifty previously dated in the early aughts. However, they called it quits by 2005. During an interview with Vlad TV in 2021, The Salon star opened up about how she found out their romance was over.
“The relationship broke up after the World Music Awards. I came back, and he was on the radio saying he dumped me,” she said. “My friend called me. I was in Baltimore filming. My friend called me and said, ‘Your boys on the radio blasting you… he’s telling everyone you broke up.’ And I was like, ‘We did?’ So he never personally said it’s a wrap. That was his way. Looking back on it now, he returned to being that tough guy. Because we loved each other at the time.”
