The rapper and the upcoming film's director briefly dated back in 2003.

It's not unusual for 50 Cent to have a bone to pick with other figures in the entertainment industry, and it appears his latest target is his former girlfriend, Vivica A. Fox. The rapper has become well-known for bringing shows like BMF and Power to audiences at home, but he's not so pleased to see his ex following in his footsteps with her forthcoming The First Lady of BMF: The Tonesa Welch Story movie on BET+. As HipHopDX notes, the news actually came out via Deadline earlier this month, the New Yorker is just late in sharing his thoughts on the project.

"This should say 263, not BMF, @southwest263," the "I Get Money" hitmaker wrote on Instagram yesterday (March 30). "🤷🏽‍♂️ What the f*ck is this man! ☕️🐸 Vivica ugh, so [you're] not gonna ever leave me alone hun 👀?" he then asked, throwing obvious shade at the media personality. Of course, Fox wasn't the only one to face 50's wrath. Judge Mathis, who will be executive producing her film, was also a noteworthy part of the rapper's caption.

"And what the f*ck is Judge Mathis doing in this mix 😳? I'm done, I'm done with all you n*ggas LOL," his post ended. Fans of Fif aren't exactly finding his message surprising, seeing as he and Fox have publicly feuded on multiple occasions over the years. Just a few years ago, she called the multi-talent out for making "contentious comments about Black women" during a Young Money Radio interview. "He just has such f*ckboy tendencies, you know what I mean?" the 58-year-old said of her ex around that time. Despite what 50 Cent has to say, Fox seems eager to move forward with The First Lady of BMF movie.

From what we know, the project will "chart Welch's rise from teen mom to drug dealer to earning her prestigious title from federal prosecutors," as per Deadline. "Dreams and desires, craftiness and creativity, hustle and hard work, Welch tells a harrowing story about riches, remorse, personal responsibility, and redemption set amidst the lavishness and extreme violence of Detroit’s crack era and America’s ‘war on drugs," a synopsis also notes. Let us know if you'll be tuning into the movie on BET+ later this year in the comments, and check back tomorrow for more pop culture news updates.
