Fiddy's representative insists that the 'Candy Shop' rapper was not mocking Jigga or his wife, Beyonce Knowles, when posting photo-shopped images of their newborn baby girl.
50 Cent has drawn controversy by posting on Twitter photo-shopped images of Jay-Z's face on an infant's body just days after Jigga welcomed his first child with wife Beyonce Knowles. His representative, however, is adamant that the "In da Club" rapper wasn't trying to ignite feud between him and the music mogul.
Speaking to Access Hollywood regarding the superimposed photos, Fiddy's representative first stressed that the 36-year-old "did not post the image." The rep continued on to say that instead of mocking Jigga and his "Countdown" singer wife, the "Baby by Me" MC was actually "trying to discourage his followers from doing so."
Jigga and Queen Bey welcomed their first child together, Blue Ivy Carter, on Saturday, January 7. As the new parents celebrated the birth of their daughter, Fiddy tweeted a link to faux pictures of the newborn on Tuesday, January 10. Along with it, he wrote, "Yal play to much congratulations to JAYZ and Beyonce BABY #BlueIvyCarter IS GEORGOUS."
The rapper later followed up the tweet with some clarification. "I would never make a picture like that its all over my time line yal play to much I'm sure Jay is the happiest he's ever been in his life," he told his followers before sharing his own memory of being a first-time father. "I remember when MARQUISE was born I was so happy. I want to have another kid one day."
