50 Cent Backs Out of Chris Brown's 'Party Tour'
50 Cent won’t be joining Chris Brown’s “Party Tour.” With just hours until the trek kicks off, the G-Unit mogul has announced that he won’t be hitting the road.
According to TMZ, 50 never finalized his contract. He was set to be the lead guest on the tour once Breezy’s camp agreed on his fee. Tour promoter Live Nation even included him on the promo materials. However, things changed when it was time to sign the deal, as Live Nation and Fif were reportedly “hundreds of thousands of dollars apart” on the fee.
Negotiations ensued, but 50 reportedly called it all off two weeks ago. Promo materials featuring 50 were disseminated for at least a week after that.
TMZ ran their report with a headline that reads: “50 Cent: I Never Signed Chris Brown Tour Deal…Promoter Couldn’t Afford Me!” But Fiddy clarified that wasn’t the case and claimed that he is still shooting his movie, Den of Thieves, due in theaters next year.
“I would never say my friends can’t afford me,” he wrote. “This run wasn’t handled correctly, I’m still on set filming Den of Thieves.”
50 isn’t the first act to leave “The Party Tour.” Prior to his cancelation, French Montana was also featured on promo items before backing out of the run.
The “Party” will go on. Chris Brown is slated to kick off his headlining tour with special guests Fabolous, O.T. Genasis, and Kap G this evening in Baltimore.
