Power Ghost EP 50 Cent launches attack on Starz over ‘leaks’

Power Ghost Caroline Chikezie opens up about meeting ‘gracious’ Mary J Blige

Throughout season three, Power Book II: Ghost has had Starz viewers on the edge of their seats as the youngsters took their drug business from school to Wall Street.

However, when the FBI began closing in on Tariq St Patrick’s (played by Michael Rainey Jr) illegal dealing with the Tejada family, bodies started dropping.

The most recent episode titled Sacrifice ended with a major jaw-dropper as corrupt defence attorney Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson) was killed.

Although Saxe had been a major thorn in fans’ side since he was first introduced in the original series of Power, his death took viewers by surprise.

With just two more episodes until the season finale, the crime drama confirmed it would go on a two-week hiatus.

However, on Saturday it was reported the remaining episodes were dropped before the scheduled release date.

As a result, executive producer 50 Cent took to Instagram with rage and slammed network Starz for the “leak”.

The rapper sarcastically claimed: “Give it up for the only network that leaks its biggest shows. Great work guys.”

In the past, 50 Cent has opened up about his difficult relationship with the network and has previously blasted them online on multiple occasions.

In April, he shared his regret for creating the series with Starz as well as his other shows including BMF and two other Power spin-offs with the network.

Admitting his displeasure, the producer tweeted: “I have the number 1,2,3, and 4 top Tv shows in African American, and Latina households.

“And I hate that I did them with the wrong people, I’m not doing any BMF spin-offs or selling any other shows to STARZ.”

The cast also took to social media to react to the season three leaks.

Cane Tejada star Woodly McClain cryptically tweeted: “Feeling like Cane because I know who leaked.”

While Brayden Weston’s Gianni Paolo jokingly blamed BMF star Da’Vinchi Juste.

He shared of photo from Da’Vinchi’s appearance on his podcast and wrote: “This the dude who probably leaked the episodes to mess with our massive ratings … Anyway.”

While Michael Rainey claimed “the leak is fake”, during a club appearance.

Power Book II: Ghost season 3 returns Friday, May 19 on Starz in the USA and Lionsagte+ in the UK.
