Earlier this week, Vivica Fox implied that her ex 50 Cent might be gay on live television. Now, the rapper and entrepreneur is embracing questions about his sexual orientation — for the sake of selling underwear.
Fif opened up to Us Weekly about the public spat between himself and his ex, once again expressing confusion about why Fox felt the need to talk about him nearly a decade after their split. “I thought it was crazy,” 50 said of Fox’s comments on Watch What Happens Live. “That statement was, like, out of nowhere. I don’t know, it feels like desperation. It feels like [she’s] searching for attention at that point because I haven’t dealt with her in 10 years, 11 years."
The silver lining, though, seems to be that he gets a chance to promote his new underwear line, Frigo. "I thought it would be really attractive to the gay community because they're so conscious of their clothing. If it's not cool with them, it's going to not be so cool." Well, that sounds like a stereotype.
