One of these TV power-houses is about to lose their empire…
It's no secret that 50 Cent isn't exactly the biggest fan of Empire due to its gay plotlines, but he apparently isn't that fond of Cookie either.
In fact, the Power producer just got into ANOTHER feud with Taraji P. Henson over the weekend following the FOX musical drama's Season Three premiere on Wednesday!

Apparently, the rapper is just the tiniest bit jealous that his Starz crime drama isn't the most popular black show on television, so he's taking it out on Taraji!
In a since-deleted Instagram post on Saturday, 50 called out Empire's admittedly-fallen ratings, saying:
This is so messy!
If you follow 50 Cent, you're probably aware of the rapper's baby momma saga with Shaniqua Tompkins has been quite the roller coaster in regards to their 18-year-old son Marquise Jackson.
It's been years since this whole thing has been going on, and now all the drama is being brought to light once again thanks to 50 laying it all out on social media.
A few days ago, the controversial artist posted a now-deleted picture to Instagram showing a countdown until the day he won't legally have to pay child support payments to Shaniqua for Marquise. Ugh.

Next to the clock reading "396 days," the 41-year-old penned:
Is Chris Brown's temper preventing him from branching out into the television industry?!
Apparently, 50 Cent had offered the scandalized star a part on his Starz series Power, but didn't run it (get it?) by the network before telling the singer he'd be on the show.

A source explained to Page Six:
"50 promised Chris a big role on Power, playing a drug dealer. But 50 didn't consult the network first, and execs were not happy when they found out about it."
In fact, Starz execs were so opposed to the 27-year-old joining the drama that they vetoed the rapper's decision, citing the troubled celeb's anger as the reason.
The insider added that Breezy found out he was being denied the role the day before he allegedly threatened Baylee Curran with a gun, saying:
Unlike Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber, it seems 50 Cent has slight reservations flaunting his d*ck for the world to see — especially when it's on television!
The rapper was not happy with the latest episode of his Starz series Power, because a sex scene featuring his character Kanan put his actual peen on the small screen!

After the August 7 episode aired, the 41-year-old took to Instagram to blast series creator Courtney Kemp for exposing his roll of quarters.
He wrote in the caption:
Melissa McCarthy may have successfully led the Ghostbusters reboot, but she won't be starring in a Star Wars spinoff anytime soon!
The comedienne was one of several A-list stars who auditioned to play young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars prequel — and let's just say we're now very glad the role went to Alden Ehrenreich!
In a hilarious sketch on Saturday's special San Diego Comic-Con episode of Conan, a handful of celebs tried out their best impressions of the beloved character.

All donning Han's iconic vest, Bill Hader proved he was much better at playing Jabba the Hut, 50 Cent was a little too intimidating with Han's glock, and Adam Sandler did his best adult baby babbling a la Billy Madison.
Ch-ch-check out the skit (below) to see Will Arnett, Jeff Goldblum, and even Jodie Foster auditioning for young Han!
50 Cent is having an amazing day!
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, the rapper was able to make a deal with a judge to get out of his insane bankruptcy scandal.

Luckily for the 41-year-old, the judge just approved the financial plan which he originally submitted in April of this year. The strategy requires the mogul to pay a whopping $23 million over the course of five years.
Per the docs, the celeb will cough up $17 million to Sleek Audio and $6 million to Lastonia Leviston.
In a statement, the musician's lawyer explained:
"Mr. Jackson is pleased that the Bankruptcy Court approved his plan of reorganization today, less than one year after filing for chapter 11 to reorganize his financial affairs. Mr. Jackson appreciates the fresh start this process provides."
What a relief for the New York native! We're glad he's dealing with this head-on.
Here's to better money management this time around, 50!

Poor 50 Cent!
The rapper was playing a show in St. Kitts on Saturday night when he was warned by authorities not to use profanity or else he'd have to face consequences.

But the rapper didn't listen to cops, and his DJ didn't have a clean version of his music for the concert, so at his show in front of 40,000 people, Fiddy dropped an f-bomb — and got jailed for it!!
The rapper didn't pull the mic away from his mouth during a line when it came time to yell "motherf*cker," and for that, he got handcuffed and taken down to the police station.
Ch-ch-check out some video form his concert (below)!
