50 Cent has said that his “Power” co-star Rotimi owes him $300,000. The trouble started when Rotimi boasted on Instagram that his new EP, “Walk With Me,” had gone to the top of the R&B chart.
This prompted 50 Cent to share an Instagram video with the caption: “My man you owe an outstanding $300,000 now WALK WITH ME to the bank.”
Rotimi shot back to deny that he owed the rapper money. “I just bought a crib. I’m taking care of my family,” Rotimi said.
In the past year, the “In Da Club” rapper has gone after a string of other stars online, claiming that they owe him unpaid debts.
Meanwhile, Snoop Dogg even leapt into the fray, offering to pay Rotimi’s alleged debt for him. “I don’t want [his character] to get killed on ‘Power’ [over the debt],” Snoop said on Instagram, addressing 50 Cent. “I think you gonna kill him next ’cause he owes you money.”
50 Cent is a producer on the show.
