Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson is adamant that he didn’t approve his penis being show on a recent episode of his hit series, Power. This week, the 41-year-old rapper turned actor discussed the controversy while on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He does admit that he was aware of the scene, but thought it wouldn’t be so x-rated.
I knew it was there, but in the original clips, it was darker. It wasn’t on, like, a big screen, like a life-sized version. It wasn’t like, an accident. Courtney was like, ‘I didn’t want to show it to you in the beginning because I didn’t think you needed to see it at that point … You just gotta take one for the team.’
50 adds that his aunt was NOT a fan of the scene either.
My aunt sees the show, and she’s like, ‘I’m traumatized!’ She texted me like, ‘What the f–k? Why didn’t you tell me?’”
As previously reported, last month after the episode aired, 50 took to Instagram, airing out Courtney Kemp, the show runner of the series. In one Instagram post, which he later deleted, he writes:
The scene was hard enough man, it’s not a regular sex scene. Courtney you of all people know this you wrote this sh*t. Ok I calm [sic] down Courtney call my phone. B*TCH CAN’T BELIEVE YOU DID THAT WITHOUT TELLING ME FIRST, WHOAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!! Ok ok wait a little while before you call me. SMH
Courtney responded, claiming that 50 should have been full aware of the scene as he signed a waiver just like the rest of the cast.

And for those who missed the episode, here’s the clip of the eggplant in question.
