New York rapper 50 Cent is making sure people understand it’s OK if they’re confused about him feeling sympathetic about the passing of late Hollywood actor Michael K. Williams. Fifty has reminded fans of his past issues with the 54-year-old over a connection to his real-life nemesis James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond.
50 Cent’s Michael K. Williams Issues
Fifty went to his Instagram page with a flashback to an article showing his clashing with Williams. The story referenced Williams’ support of the jailed music executive and Fif going at him on social media.
“don’t ever try to understand me i’m different. I don’t do all the fake love sh*t”
The new post comes hours after 50 shared a since-deleted message about drugs possibly taking the former HBO star’s life.
“👀Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele. R.I.P micheal k williams #bransoncognac#lecheminduroi#bottlerover“
50 Cent + Michael K. Williams’ Short-Lived Feud
Back in October 2018, 50 went at Michael K. Williams with a slew of social media posts. Fifty posted since-deleted IG remarks about him and referenced his fictional portrayal of a gay street hustler on HBO’s “The Wire” series.
The same week, Williams released a video addressing rumors Fif ignited involving Jimmy Rosemond getting touched behind bars.
“Hey what’s up world? I just stopped pass with a little message for anyone who may or may not be interested in anything they’ve heard in regards to Jimmy Rosemond on social media these past few days. They are completely false y’all. I speak to him and his team of lawyers on a regular basis and I assure you he is fine and in prayer. So with that I’ll say to anyone under the sound of this simple man’s voice God bless.”
The Family Asks For Privacy
Following the shocking reports, Williams’ representative has come forward to speak out on behalf of his family.
“It is with deep sorrow that the family announces the passing of Emmy nominated actor Michael Kenneth Williams. They ask for your privacy while grieving this insurmountable loss,” his longtime rep, Marianna Shafran of Shafran PR, said. (THR)
