AceShowbiz - 50 Cent enjoys the drama between his colleagues. As "Power" stars Joseph Sikora and Gianni Paolo have been feuding online, the rapper, who co-created and also starred on the Starz series, further aggravated the tension between the two actors.
Public noticed the saltiness between Joseph and Gianni following their interaction at Fiddy's Tycoon event in Houston, Texas on Sunday, August 28. In footage which has circulated online, Joseph was seen greeting people onstage, but when Gianni approached him, he looked at his hand and ignored his co-star.
Gianni later addressed the matter on TikTok, posting a video in which he said, "You pressed? I would be too." He added a jab at his "Power Book II: Ghost" co-star as claiming that "some ppl just insecure [shrugging and crying emoji]."
Meanwhile, Joseph responded by writing in an Instagram comment to Hazel-E, claiming that the issue between them has been resolved. "We saw each other at the hotel afterward and talked," he wrote. "All good. [thumbs up emoji]."
Gianni begged to differ though. Accusing Joseph of "telling lies," he insisted on his Instagram Story, "It's not 'all good.' " He went on ripping the Brayden Weston depicter, "He's been doing this s**t for years when I've shown nothing but respect and love. He kept just saying he doesn't f**k with me. Nothing was resolved. Stop spreading lies cause people are pressing you about your saltiness. I've said nothing but amazing things about this dude on the podcast and if you listen to it you know."
The 46-year-old actor went on suggesting that Joseph's attitude changed after they began starring on the "Power" spin-off series. "Season 6 of Power he was the nicest guy in the world to me. Then when Ghost happened everything switched up," so he divulged. "If you're gonna try and pretend like s**t is resolved for social media case you're mad everybody is asking a 47 year old man is throwing shade at someone who everybody f**ks with then at least do better than that my guy."
In the end, Joseph wanted Gianni to man up and admit the friction between them. "You made this public on stage grandpop not me. Now you're dealing with the outcome of being a child," he added in a separate Story. "idgaf if you don't like me. ...But don't pretend on social media that we're good after I tried to make peace STILL after the YEARS of disrespect and shade and you said no."
Catching wind of the two stars' online back-and-forth, 50 Cent weighed in on it. But instead of playing a peacemaker, he egged them on to take things physical as writing on his own Instagram post, "[Eyeball emoji] oh s**t, it's up! [thinking emoji] Now I never like to start s**t but you should sock him Tommy, wait i think this little n***a Brayden got a knife . Lol."
It's currently unclear what started the beef between Joseph and Gianni in the first place.
