50 Cent has released a statement after the hip hop community was shocked and appalled by a series of racy photos he posted on Instagram – which they believed showed married R’n’B Ciara grabbing a handful of his business.
On Monday, Fiddy marked the 16th anniversary of his third album, “Curtis,” by posting s*xy snaps from the record’s liner notes. One of the photos shows a woman standing behind him – her face obscured by his torso – with one hand caressing his rippling abs and the other pushing down the front of his open pants.
All hell is breaking loose.
Major rap magazine Vibe headlined “50 Cent shares lewd photos of his ex, Ciara” and many followers seemed to feel slighted on behalf of Ciara’s current husband, Russell Wilson. “Yo, she’s someone’s wife now, Fif.” Delete these posts,” one said, while another added: “If calmly saying I struck first is next level. Yet a third said: “Russell Wilson is not going to like this.” »
The problem appears to have been caused by the fact that when the record came out in 2007, the “In Da Club” rapper was dating Ciara and, it seems, the rap world has since been left with the impression that his then-girlfriend had appeared in the beating with him.
And while 50 Cent is hardly press shy, even he seems to recognize that this particular scandlet is not a good look.
“There are two different models on the cover of the ‘Curtis’ album,” longtime 50 Cent rep Amanda Ruisi told Page Six exclusively, “neither of them are Ciara.”
Fiddy and the “1, 2 Step” singer dated from 2007 to 2010. She has been married to NFL star Wilson since 2016.
