Power actor Rotimi has pacified his co-star 50 Cent — at least temporarily. After 50 Cent went after Rotimi on social media for an alleged $300,000 debt, the R&B singer reportedly settled part of the outstanding bill.
Rotimi accepted to owing 50 Cent money and says he handed over $100,000 to 50 earlier this week.
“Let me explain the whole situation,” he began. “When you’re signed to someone as an artist, they give you a budget to promote the records, make sure everything’s good with the records and market it so it gets the best value … 50 believed in me in 2014 and gave me a deal under G-Unit.”
“At this point, we didn’t agree on the single ‘Love Rhythm.’ I felt it was the one. He felt like I should’ve gone with another record, so I asked him, ‘Can I get out of my deal?’ He said, ‘Yes, I’m not gonna hold you back, but there’s a business.’”
As Rotimi went on to explain their deal, he revealed a payment already went down.
“The way he handles situations is unorthodox,” he continued. “I think he was just in a bad mood yesterday. I don’t know what it was. I was just confused, like, ‘Yo, we talked about this.’ We talked about it today. Instead of waiting for royalties, because he’s my brother, instead of waiting for royalties, I gave him $100,000. We’re good. We’re good.”
50 was apparently satisfied with Rotimi’s attempt to make things right. He said on Instagram: “I have no problem with @Rotimi, in fact, I wish him and his family the best God bless,” he captioned the video. “POSITIVE VIBES.”
