50 Cent has called out his ex-girlfriend Vivica A. Fox over a new Black Mafia Family movie she’s directing.
Fox, who briefly dated 50 back in 2003, has been tapped to direct The First Lady of BMF: The Tonesa Welch Story, an upcoming biopic about the Detroit gangster set to debut on BET+ later this year.
Also boasting Judge Greg Mathis as an executive producer, the film “charts Welch’s rise from teen mom to drug dealer to being labeled by federal prosecutors as ‘The First Lady of BMF,'” Deadline reported earlier this month.
“Dreams and desires, craftiness and creativity, hustle and hard work, Welch tells a harrowing story about riches, remorse, personal responsibility, and redemption set amidst the lavishness and extreme violence of Detroit’s crack era and America’s ‘war on drugs.'”
After catching wind of the project, 50 Cent — whose BMF series he launched in 2021 is one of STARZ’s most popular shows — took to Instagram on Thursday (March 30) to slam Vivica A. Fox for venturing onto his turf.
“This should say 263 not BMF, @southwest263 [shrug emoji],” he wrote, referencing the crew BMF co-founder Terry “Southwest T” Flenory started in Los Angeles. “What the fvck is this man ! [tea emoji] [frog emoji].”
“Vivica ugh, So your not gonna ever leave me alone hun? and what the fvck is judge Mathis doing in this mix[.] I’m done, Im done with all of you ni66as. LOL.”
Fox has yet to respond, although she did share her excitement about directing The First Lady of BMF on Instagram when the film was announced earlier this month.
This is far from the first time 50 Cent and Vivica A. Fox have butted heads since ending their short-lived romance 20 years ago.
In 2020, Fox put the G-Unit boss on blast after he made contentious comments about Black women during an interview on Lil Wayne’s Young Money Radio, saying they get “mad” and “angry” when a Black man dates “exotic” women.
“He just has such fuckboy tendencies, you know what I mean?” Fox said of her ex on FOX Soul’s Cocktails With Queens. “When I read that, I was like, ‘Really?’ You would say that because you don’t want anyone to challenge you or talk to you. You want somebody to sit over there and be a pretty little dog that you can just pay. You can’t handle a Black woman, can you?”
50 responded via Instagram, writing: “Vivica still in love with me, i dated her for 4 months 17 years ago and she’s still angry with me. I’m starting to feel like my [eggplant emoji] is serious. LOL.”
As for his BMF series, the acclaimed drama recently wrapped its second season. A third season featuring new celebrity additions 2 Chainz and Ne-Yo is currently in the works.
50 Cent has also teased multiple BMF spin-offs as his TV empire continues to grow.
