A Journalist Called The Cops On 50 Cent After He Threatened Him On Instagram

Man claims 50 Cent threatened to cut him so bad that he'd need 150 stitches.

Did 50 Cent really threaten to cut someone so bad that they'd need 150 stitches? That's what one man is claiming, according to TMZ.

TMZ reports that after Courtney "Mafi" Johnson booked Shaniqua Tompkins for an interview — you know, the mother of 50's oldest son with whom he's been feuding — 50 Cent threatened him in an Instagram post the next day. 50 posted a photo of Johnson, along with a pretty ominous caption.

"I don't know this guy, never met him before," he wrote. "I have nothing to do with him getting a buck 50 in his face. Vlad TV should know better than to get into gangsta sh*t. This is what happens all the time. Now the poor guy has to staple his face together. Get well soon should have seen this coming."

Yikes. 50 deleted the post in under an hour, but that didn't stop Johnson from calling the police and filing an incident report.

According to TMZ's sources, cops in Wisconsin — where Johnson lives — have already investigated and closed the case. Meanwhile, Johnson plans to meet with a lawyer and explore his options, so this might not be over just yet.
