50 Cent is having a lot of fun with befuddled and angry â€œPowerâ€� fans.
The undisputed king of pettiness and the greatest troller of the modern era, deliberately caused consternation among the multitude of â€œPowerâ€� fans, by leaking a version of an ending for 25 million Instagram followers.
With only five episodes remaining, fans are clamoring to find out who shot and possibly murdered James â€œGhostâ€� St. Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick). This has become one of the greatest murder mysteries on the small screen since the legendary â€œWho shot J.R.â€� from â€œDallasâ€� in the 1980s.

In one IG post, Curtis Jackson shows a video of Ghostâ€™s wife Tasha (played by Naturi Naughton) shooting and killing Ghost to save her family. That IG post has since been deleted, not surprisingly.
A second post featured a picture from the set of Power, Fifty writes, â€œPOWERâ€¦Now everybody love me again, I wasnâ€™t sâ€” last weekâ€¦say sorry or something nice.â€�
That post has also been deleted. Of course.
Now Fifty posted this message on his IG page for fan consumption, which explains the confusion behind who shot Ghost.
In a two-month-old interview with Deadline, which most fans obviously missed, showrunner Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent apparently knew that the ending of â€œPowerâ€� could possibly be leaked and planned for that in advance.
As a remedy for the possible leak, producers filmed multiple endings so that the conclusion of â€œPowerâ€� could not be spoiled.
