It's safe to say that Chrissy Teigen speaks for most of us when she says she hopes to never get on 50 Cent's bad side.
There's been a massive, NSFW, profanity-filled feud brewing between the 43-year-old rapper, 28-year-old Vanderpump Rulesstar Lala Kent, and Kent's fiance, Randall Emmett, and the whole drama -- which is reportedly fueled by disagreements over a loan -- has been playing out in the public eye in a big way.
This modern Shakespearean drama kicked off on Friday, when 50 Cent posted a clip from Vanderpump Rules in which Kent explains how she met Emmett, which mostly involved the producer asking her to audition for a role in a movie.
Speaking with her friend, Stassi Schroeder, Kent said, "I let him hit it the first time and we were inseparable… He would just send me, like, really expensive gifts. The first night we banged, I got a car the next day. He was like, ‘Do you want a Range Rover?'"
50 Cent decided to mock Kent's story of her burgeoning romance with Emmett in the caption, and Kent decided to fire back in the comments with a remark questioning the rapper's masculinity.
"She swears she’s a thug from south side Jamaica queens & she’s up in here watching Bravo. Someone has forgotten where they come from," Kent wrote. "Coming for me on the gram!? I smell fish coming from fifty’s direction."
This, it turns out, might not have been the best way for Kent to handle the situation, as it seems 50 Cent has now made it his personal mission to embarrass Kent and Emmett at all costs.
It appears that his beef with Emmett comes from a $1 million loan the rapper claims his former Power co-producer owes him, and he demanded he be repaid in full by Monday, April 29.
After Emmett tried to plead with the rapper through text message -- claiming that he's "not doing well" and that the stress of their public feud is causing him to suffer chest pains -- 50 Cent shared a screen grab of their alleged conversation to Instagram.
"F**k you @Randallemmettfilms you think I wouldn't find out, you and your little h** girl friend talk to us weekly," he captioned the post. "I want the rest of my money Monday."
50 Cent returned to Instagram shortly there after to share another alleged screenshot of a text exchange -- in which Emmett unfortunately misspells 50 Cent's name as "fofty" -- showing Emmett begging the rapper to let up when it comes to public trolling. Needless to say, this isn't something 50 Cent was interested in doing.
"She is my fiancé and I asked you to be in My wedding last week," Emmett allegedly texted the rapper. "I'm sorry."
“What the f**k would you want me in your wedding for,” 50 Cent shot back. "Like I ain’t got s**t else to do. Get the f**k outta here."
"@randallemmettfilms sent me 250k today but I want all my money Monday f**k that, if he ain’t got it he can put his Rolls Royce on the truck to NY. The friend s**t is over rated."
Things escalated from there. Kent took to Instagram to share a video in which she tried to make a point about 50 Cent essentially mocking #MeToo.
"Fifty took a clip of me talking about what I do behind closed doors with my fiance, and used it to diminish the validity of the #metoo movement," Kent argued in the video. "That I will not stand for."
Clearly, the rapper disagreed by posting a recording of her video, and claiming that Emmett's wooing of the reality star put him on the same level of Harvey Weinstein.
"Hey how is the Range Rover? There's no difference between Harvey Weinstein and Randel Emmett! This is reality, not reality TV," he wrote.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent kept up his full-court press, mocking Emmett over and over on Instagram by sharing posts claiming he faked a heart attack to get out of paying what he supposedly owes.
The unprecedented trolling included Emmett's Wikipedia page getting changed to include a line in the intro about how he owes 50 Cent "a million by Monday, or else," as well as selling T-shirts that read "I'm sorry Fofty."
Which brings us up Teigen, who finally weighed in on the wild feud, tweeting, "I never want 50 Cent to be mad at me," and "please love me, fofty."
In response, 50 Cent shared screenshots of those tweets, writing, "I love you @chrissyteigen & john, these people just keep trying me."
The feud between 50 Cent and Emmett seemed to finally come to an end on Monday. 50 Cent Instagrammed that Emmett paid him his money and actually had a positive message for him, though he has since deleted the post.
"I got my money, so I have no problem with @randallemmettfilms in fact I'm wishing him and his family a very blessed day. ?positive vibes now guys. LOL #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac #bellator," the rapper wrote.
