If Vivica A. Fox was looking for attention, she just got it, but probably not in the way she had hoped.
The recent addition to the Empire cast appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday, November 8, to promote her new gig. During her chat with host Andy Cohenshe was asked to comment on supposed 50 Cent remarks that the show was suffering a ratings dip because of too much gay content.
50’s rep later clarified the situation: “Mr. Jackson [50 Cent] reposted something on Instagram that originated from a blog in relation to the decrease in Empire‘s ratings. When he realized there was additional content in the blog post that he did not agree with, he immediately deleted the post as that is not a reflection of his views at all.”
Despite that fact Vivica still threw shots at her former boyfriend.
“First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying,” Vivica responded.
Andy then asked her to clarify her comments.
“No, he’s not [gay]. We had a great time,” she replied. “But he just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear. I just never forget there was a Vibe cover with him and Soulja Boy, that made me kinda go…hmmm.”
It didn’t take long for 50 Cent to respond with ether in a series of Instagram posts.
“Oh No!!!, Now she thinks I’m gay because I let her lick my A$$. LMAO. Wait,I didn’t want her to,she forced me, my hands were tied. 50 shades of grey,” the music icon wrote. “Man somebody should have told her I’m a Troll. I got my a$$hole merit badge on now. b!tch remember when you told me f*ck Halle Berry and you could have played all the roles she did better then her? And I just looked at you like what the f*ck kind sh!t did you take? LMAO.”
Soulja also threw a shot.
The craziest part in all of this is that during an interview in February on The Meredith Vieira Show, Vivica said that 50 Cent was the love of her life.
“He is absolutely the love of my life,” the 51-year old actress said. “I really, really cared for him and I loved him very, very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me. That’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart, you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.’ I wish him the best, he is amazing and baby, he’s fine, but… sometimes love ain’t always right,” she explained. “The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right. [I learned] to trust in my heart and know to take the time not to settle. I think as women sometimes we’re afraid to be alone or we think, ‘Oh my god, he’s a great catch.'”
Somebody sounds confused.
