50 Cent has no problem serving some tea right back to his ex Vivica A. Fox. Though the “In da Club” rapper, 40, already responded to Fox on social media, he also opened to Us Weekly in a new exclusive interview at his Frigo by RevolutionWear Preview on Wednesday, Nov. 10, about their ongoing feud.
“I thought it was crazy,” 50 said of Fox’s comments on the Nov. 8 episode of Watch What Happens Live. “That statement was like out of nowhere. I don’t know, it feels like desperation. It feels like [she’s] searching for attention at that point because I haven’t dealt with her in 10 years, 11 years.”
It all began during Sunday night’s episode of the Bravo show, when Fox, 51, insinuated that her ex might be gay. The actress, who is set to appear on Empire as Cookie’s sister, was asked by WWHL host Andy Cohen what she thought of 50’s comments that Empire’s ratings had dipped because of the “gay stuff.”
“First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying,” she said, though she later denied that 50 Cent was gay.
“He’s not,” she continued. “I mean, we had a great time. He just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.”
Cohen later clarified that 50 never actually made the comments about Empire, instead posting a quote from someone else.
"I'm glad it happened [on WWHL] because I've been there, and I'm actually a fan of the show. So when [Cohen] did make the statement, he said immediately while on air, 'Oh now we got the facts about it,'" 50 tells Us. "I reposted [the Empire comment] and then when I started to see the comments under it — people were saying I said 'oh s–t' because of the gay element — so I took it down because it wasn't the right message to send."
The rapper also opened up about his new Frigo undergarments line, saying, "I thought it would be really attractive to the gay community because they're so conscious of their clothing. If it's not cool with them, it's going to not be so cool."
50 Cent originally responded to Fox's comments by tweeting, “Now she thinks I’m gay because I let her lick my ass. Wait, I didn’t want her to, she forced me, my hands were tied. 50 shades of grey.”
The pair dated back in 2003, shortly after Fox’s divorce from Christopher “Sixx-Nine” Harvest.
