50 Cent appeared to anger Will Smith after asking about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s admitted affair with singer August Alsina in a series of private messages shared on Instagram late Friday.
The 45-year-old Candy Shop hitmaker posted a supposed exchange with Will, 51, appearing to extend his support after the longtime spouses’ tell-all confessional on Jada’s Red Table Talk.

50 Cent then inquired why Jada made her admission so publicly, writing: ‘But why did she tell you that s**t on a show for everyone to see?’
Will responded: ‘We broke up so she did her and I did me.’
‘F**k you,’ the two-time Academy Award nominee fired back.
The final message between the pair was 50 Cent claiming he didn’t now what he did wrong.
Still, it was unclear if the messages were authentic or simply 50’s idea of a joke.

Jada began explaining the couple met August through their son Jaden, 22, and recalled the singer, who would have been 23 at the time, was ‘really sick’.

When Will pushed Jada to clarify what she meant by ‘entanglement’ she responded, ‘It was a relationship, absolutely.’
INSIDE WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT SMITH’S 22-YEAR MARRIAGE
Jada and Will have been married since 1997 after they met while she was auditioning to be his girlfriend on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
The couple have previously denied they are swingers or in an open relationship
‘I’m like, “Yo, I wish. I wish!”‘ Jada told Andy Cohen in 2017 of the persistent swinging rumors
Yet they have remained open about their sex lives, often sharing intimate details
At the premier of his movie Focus, Will let slip that Jada loves to watch his sex scenes
‘She’s a little freaky like that,’ he joked
In 2010, Jada told Oprah Winfrey that spontaneity is key to her and Will’s relationship
‘During the day I might send a sexy picture of some sort …If he’s on set with me, we might take a break,’ she said
Just a year earlier, she’d offered advice in a Redbook interview that it was important to move things outside of the bedroom
‘Does he have access to his office? Have a fantasy date. Be his secretary! Pull over on the side of the road…Just switch it up,’ she said
In 2010, the couple took their own advice in their limo on the way to the Oscars
‘We started kissing passionately, and the next thing I knew, well, let’s just say we missed the red carpet and I ended up with almost no makeup on,’ Jada revealed
The actress also claimed it was Will who first told her about the ‘Grapefruit Method’ made famous in her movie Girls Trip
She explained the couple were going through a process of healing.
‘I just wanted to feel good, It had been so long since I felt good… and it was really a joy to just help heal somebody.’
The Set It Off star pondered whether her actions were down to her codependency issues and needing to ‘fix people’ due to her past traumas.
As Will made light of the fact that he’s being the dutiful husband and standing by his wife after her ‘transgressions’ amid intense media scrutiny, Jada admitted that she doesn’t see her relationship with August ‘as a transgression at all’.
Jade said: ‘Through that particular journey, I learned so much about myself and was able to really confront a lot of emotional immaturity, emotional insecurity and I was really able to do some really deep healing.
‘And as I came through and started to realize certain things about you and I, he decided to break all communication with me which was totally understandable.
‘And I let that be and hadn’t talked to him since, so it is a little weird that all this stuff is coming out now since this was several [years ago].’
Will chimed in: ‘For me, this was years ago,’ as Jada reflected on how far they’ve come in their relationship, ‘We have really gotten to that new place of unconditional love.’
At one point in the conversation they echoed each other, saying: ‘We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life,’ a reference to a catchphrase in Will’s Bad Boys franchise.
August told The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee on June 30 that he was in love with Jada and said: ‘I sat down with Will [Smith] and had a conversation due to the transformation from their marriage to life partnership… he gave me his blessing.’
August said the two became very close, and holidayed together with the family in Hawaii a year later and they even attended the 2017 BET Awards together.
He said: ‘I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her.
‘I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it, so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody.
‘And I really loved a person, I experienced that and I know what that feels like, and some people never get that in this lifetime.
Breaking silence: August told Angela Yee during their interview that he usually wouldn’t discuss the affair, but he’s ‘lost money, friendships, relationships’ over the rumors
‘I know that I am completely blessed and this conversation is difficult because it is so much, that it would be hard for people to understand but, once it starts to affect me and my livelihood, I have to speak up about my truth.’
Shortly after Will’s representative branded the reports as ‘wrong’, while a spokesperson for Jada denied the claims to Page Six, calling them ‘absolutely not true’.
But a day later on July 2, Jada tweeted: ‘There’s some healing that needs to happen… so I’m bringing myself to The Red Table.’
Jada has been married to Will since 1997, they are parents to Jaden and daughter Willow, 19. Will has a son Trey, 27, from his marriage to Sheree Zampino, 53.
Solidarity: The two high-fived in the middle of the interview
Rumors were sparked by the lyrics: ‘You got me feeling like it was an act, you’re just an actress / Putting on a show ’cause you don’t want the world to know.’
The singer now says he is not speaking out to cause trouble.
He said: ‘Contrary to what people may believe, I am not a troublemaker. I don’t like drama. Drama actually makes me nauseous.
‘And I also don’t think that it is ever important for people to know what I do, who I sleep with, who I date … but in this instance it is very different because as I said, there are so many people that are side-eyeing me, looking at me questionable.
‘I have lost money, friendships, relationships behind it and I think it is because people don’t necessarily know the truth. But I have never done anything wrong.
Denial: The couple, pictured here in 2015, initially denied the claims coming from August
‘I love those people [the Smiths] literally like my family. I don’t have a bad thing to say about them. They are beautiful people.’
Jada has previously denied rumors that she and Will are in an open relationship and said they will never divorce.
Will has previously said that the couple no longer use the ‘married’ title but refer to each other as ‘life partners’.
‘We don’t even say we’re married anymore,’ he told BET in 2018.
‘We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life.
The social media users may have been emboldened after viewers questioned whether he hinted at an affair of his own during the Red Table Talk chat.
Margot was briefly among the trending topics on Twitter, along with Will, which led one user to make a joke about the actors.
‘Margot Robbie on top of Will Smith in the trending,’ wrote a user who went by Jack. ‘I mean, that’s the story, isn’t it?’ he joked.
Another user shared a video of Margot’s appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon from December 2018, in which she played a game where she and Jimmy read personal questions, then had to say the answer out loud.
They each could also reveal the question out loud, or take a shot to keep it secret.
During the game, Margot revealed Will Smith was the answer to her mystery question, but she chose to drink a shot rather than reveal what she was asked.
After Jada admitted to having an affair with the singer–songwriter, some of Will’s comments led viewers to question whether he’d had his own dalliances in the past.
The Gemini Man star said the couple had ‘made mistakes without fear of losing’ their family.
‘We came together young and we were both broken in our own ways. To be able to make mistakes without fear of losing your family is so critical,’ he said.
Some viewers also picked up on Jada’s contention that Will had already gotten his revenge, as pointed out by the Mirror.
‘”Make mistakes” = cheat on one another. Let’s get reals,’ wrote on person on social media.
‘Will Smith getting through this discussion without acknowledging the women he’s been with since him & Jada have been on a break,’ tweeted another.
Margot was previously forced to deny any impropriety with Will after photos of the two in a photo booth were published by Star Magazine.
One picture showed Will from behind as he wrapped his arm around Margot’s throat while they made playful faces at the camera.
In another photo, Margot pulled her shirt up to expose her bra, while will pulled his shirt up and touched his naked chest against her back.

‘Been working non-stop, just catching my breath. There’s absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag…’ Margot tweeted at the time.
‘…It’s disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context [sic].’
‘When we did our audition together, we had a natural chemistry,’ Margot previously said of her costar. ‘I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.’
The two actors took the photos while filming 2015’s Focus, in which Will played an experienced con man who took a young grifter, played by Margot, under his wing.
Radar Online reported shortly after the photo booth shots were released that the actors had been alone at the time and weren’t celebrating as part of a set party.
The eyewitness on set claimed that Margot jumped on Will’s back and he carried her back to his luxury trailer on set, skipping the movie’s wrap party.
Will and Margot worked together again on DC’s Suicide Squad, though his character won’t be returning for its confusingly titled upcoming sequel The Suicide Squad.
