New York, NY – The normally jovial 50 Cent took a moment from his usual Instagram trolling to share a serious post about the recent death of a Power crew member. Pedro Jimenez was killed on-set Monday morning (December 10) while setting up a scene in Brooklyn. Upon hearing the news, the Power exec sent his condolences to the Jimenez family.
“I just learned we lost Pedro Jimenez, a member of the Power production team early this morning,” he wrote alongside an all-black photo.”My prayers and condolences are with the entire Jimenez family.”
Other members of the Power team also shared their sentiments. Actress/singer Naturi Naughton — who stars in the show as Tasha St. Patrick — also expressed her sorrow on Instagram.
“Truly shocked and saddened!” she wrote. “Losing one of our own really hit home today! Tomorrow is not promised y’all! Live fully today! My thoughts and prayers are with the Jimenez family! #speechless #prayersUp.”
Jimenez was reportedly hit by a 2006 Ford Explorer while lining up parking cones at the filming location. After being transported to a local hospital, he was soon pronounced dead. Jimenez had worked for the show since 2014.
