Judge Mathis Clears Up Supposed “BMF” Beef With 50 Cent

Recently, some strife emerged in the world of "BMF" after it was announced that Judge Mathis would executive produce a biopic on "the First Lady of BMF," Tonesa Welch. Moreover, 50 Cent took to Instagram to blast the Vivica A. Fox-directed film for some inaccuracies, particularly regarding Tonesa's gang ties. "This should say 263, not BMF, @southwest263,” 50 wrote via an Instagram post. “What the f**k is this man! Vivica ugh, so [you’re] not gonna ever leave me alone hun? And what the f**k is Judge Mathis doing in this mix? I’m done, I’m done with all you n***as LOL."

After that, the TV judge responded to the New York MC and business mogul with some Instagram comments of his own. "You my guy,” he clarified to Fif in his message. “Let Tonesa eat! The first lady of BMF. You know, I know Lala’s doing a hell of a job- but y’all haven’t fed Toni. I’m from Detroit, and they’re from Detroit- that’s how I’m involved. These are Detroiters, man. We cut from the same cloth. I respect you, man, I respect your work. Now, let us get some money."
