50 Cent put on his petty pants on Friday morning and took to social media to shade the forthcoming BET film, First Lady of BMF: The Tonesa Welch Story.
Tonesa Welch was the longtime girlfriend of Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, the co-founder of the Black Mafia Family (BMF), a notorious drug trafficking organization that operated in the United States from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s.
The biopic tells the story of Tonesa’s rise from teen mom to drug dealer to being labeled by federal prosecutors as “The First Lady of BMF.”
Vivica A. Fox has been tapped to direct the biopic, which is executive produced by Judge Greg Mathis, Tressa Azarel Smallwood, Donte Lee, and Delece James.
Weeks after the project was greenlit, 50 Cent took to social media writing, “This should say 263 not BMF, @southwest263 🤷🏽♂️ What the fvck is this man ! ☕️🐸”
Oh, but Curtis didn’t stop there. He went on to fire a shot at his ex-girlfriend, Vivica.
He wrote, “Vivica ugh, So your not gonna ever leave me alone hun? 👀 and what the fvck is judge Mathis doing in this mix😳. I’m done, Im done with all of you ni66as. LOL”

50’s shade was expected and actually delayed in the grand scheme of things.
Key aspects of Tonesa Welch’s life are depicted in Season 2 of the hit Starz series, “BMF,” with the character MarKisha Taylor, played by La La Anthony.
Tonesha has been very outspoken about her disapproval of how she was pushed out of the project, but they still offered a chopped-and-screwed version of her story.
She also noted that she has had convos with 50 Cent about the series.
I had contracts I had many convos with 50. The family didn’t want me involved it was so much BS they ask that my name not be mention or my story to be told.
I can respect that this is not my story. But when I walk away, I ask respectfully not to use my story. If you even seen or felt the bullying I went through why would you use any parts of my life… It’s so many parts of this story that’s not true.
Vivica A. Fox slid into the streets of social media with a classy response to her petty ex.

Vivica’s “Cocktails with Queens” co-host, Claudia Jordan, slid into the comments writing, “Awwww he’s still watching your every move Queen! Gotta love it!!’ 🔥❤️”
