'Power' season 5 finale LEAKED online! 50 Cent responds to the controversy in a cryptic post
'Power' season 5 finale episode leak is the least of fans' concerns, especially after the show took a stunning turn, dramatically killing off Kanan - played by 50 Cent.
Currently in its fifth season, hit Starz series 'Power' is headed for a dramatic finale, culminating into the events of a much-anticipated final episode. However, just days before tenth and last episode from season 5 was due to air - which is on Sunday, September 9 - it's been reported that the finale had been leaked online, making rounds on social media as loyal followers make every attempt to steer clear of the spoilers.
On the heels of this brewing drama and a debate over how the episode made it's way to the Internet, show's star and executive producer 50 Cent has now taken to social media to address the controversy. In a cryptic post shared on Instagram recently, the actor - whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III - not only talked about the alleged leak but also seemed to imply how he is being accused of leaking the episode online.
"Now STARZ is mad at me because they think I leaked the last episode of POWER," the 43-year-old actor-cum-rapper wrote, alongside an official poster of the series with the caption "Ghost Never Die." What's more interesting than him talking about the leak online is the fact that 50 Cent didn't even make any active response, denying the accusations.
"Well it’s not like I’m acting in it, they will get over it my numbers were bigger last time," he shared adding, "LOL 🤨get the strap #lecheminduroi."
According to reports, this is not the first time that the rapper-turned-actor has been at the center of such news. Apparently, he was responsible for leaking multiple episodes from 'Power' season 4 back in August last year. Remaining vague as usual, at the time, the rapper had claimed that his actions had led to an increased rating for the season.
Meanwhile, as it turns out, the episode leak is the least of fans' concerns, especially after the show took a stunning turn, dramatically killing off Kanan - a character brought to life by 50 Cent.
“The pace of the next two shows is a lot [faster] because it’s everyone else’s response to the betrayal of Kanan and his death,” said Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson during a conference call earlier. “Trust is completely broken. It spins out of control. Everybody’s looking at everybody sideways.”
Although he has no qualms about being let off the plot, the actor was more than happy to dish on the fate of the characters, moving into the finale. “Ghost’s behavior up to this point has exhausted Tasha, and he has this narcissistic thing where he just does whatever comforts him, and then it’s everyone else’s fault when it goes wrong. There’s no way Tommy’s going to believe that Ghost wasn’t aware of Tasha’s plan," he added.
