The partner’s lawyer responds.

50 Cent is suing Andrew Jameson for more than $800,000 in damages for falsely representing him to E!, TMZ reports.

The Rap mogul says that he paid Jameson $270,000 to make deals for his business ventures. When the contract for their partnership expired, Jameson pitched a reality show about 50 Cent’s G-Unit label to E! He suggested to a G-Unit employee that they should enlist a “young white woman” to be a part of the show to make it more sellable.

50 Cent says he was unaware of the request, which occurred via text message. When he found out about the conversation, he called the suggestion, “highly offensive.”

The rapper went to E! to say he didn’t want to do the reality show and the company said they had already finalized the deal with Jameson. 50 refused to do the show and says his relationship with E! and parent company NBCUniversal is “severely damaged.”

Jameson’s lawyer, Eric George, commented on the case. He says that his client is not the one at fault.

“His claims aren’t worth 50 cents.” George says, “In fact, Andrew is the one owed money — several months of unpaid salary … and he’s in arbitration to get it.”

50 Cent filed for bankruptcy in July and reportedly owes more than $28 million to various creditors.
