50 Cent and Benzino are still exchanging shots a week after the television mogul accused both Young Buck and the ex-Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta personality of having relationships with trans women. In one of 50 Cent’s posts, he used audio of a conversation between Benzino and trans model Shauna Brooks that suggested they were intimate at one time.
Brooks responded on Twitter, “My intent is NEVER to ‘out’ any1 but MY truth is always T while it‘s PAINFUL to relive PUBLICLY… I’m TIRED of men LOVING girls like us ONLY behind closed doors & treating us as if we’re disposable when it’s NO longer convenient. They want you to be their toy on their time.”
On Wednesday (April 20), 50 Cent re-shared Brooks’ tweet to his Instagram account and tagged Benzino in the post. He added in the caption, “There must be a lot of this going on.”
Benzino is incensed over 50 Cent’s allegations and threatening legal action against anyone who’s “slandered” his name. During a recent interview with It’s Tricky with Racquel Harper, the former Source publisher vowed to get revenge on 50 Cent for spreading rumors about him online.
“We’re just going to talk the facts with this man, because again I can’t say too much because it’s getting ready to go down,” the 56-year-old said. “Everybody that defamed and slandered me is getting ready to get sued. Every single site, every radio guy, every personality, they’re all about to be liable.
“Back on this guy…we’re talking about a man that I once helped, that after he had a situation at the Hit Factory, when he got stabbed, he came to my studio that was not even a block down…he came in my session and I actually called him a car service to get him to the hospital so he can get stitched up.”
Par for the course, 50 Cent has deleted one of the original posts that included the audio between Brooks and Benzino but left one (for now). Check it out below.
