50 Cent is getting sued for $200 Million over allegedly stealing the idea for Power.
50 Cent is having a horrible year.
50 Cent is headed back to court to fight another lawsuit, but luckily for him and his lawyers this one should be an open and shut case.
A man named Larry Johnson is accusing 50 Cent of stealing his manuscript and using it as inspiration for the hit Starz series Power,
and Larry wants $200 million dollars for his troubles. According to TMZ
, Johnson claims he gave his manuscript, "Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid," off to an employee at G-Unit books, who then showed it to 50 Cent only for it to eventually become the storyline of Power.
Apparently "Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid" features a character like Ghost from POwer,
who has a crazy friend and owns a nightclub. Johnson also says Ghost is his pen name, which is obviously the nickname of the main character from Power.
For his services, Johnson is looking to get paid, because I guess it's better to aim high in these type of cases.
has built themselves to be one of the most watched shows on premium network TV. But, this may be a bad move for Johnson since 50 Cent allegedly only made $300,000 during the first two seasons of Power.
