50 Cent Sued for $200M Over “Power”

Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson is being sued by Larry Johnson, an author who claims to have penned a manuscript in 2005 that reads similar to the premise of 50’s hit cable series “Power.” Johnson’s “Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid” was given to Nikki Turner, an employee at Jackson’s G-Unit Books. The title was published, but Johnson claims Curtis turned his book into “Power.” He states the similarities come across in the character name “Ghost,” a pen name in the publication. 50-cent-powerGhost owns a lucrative nightclub in Atlanta, and “Power” has a “Ghost” character running the “it” nightclub in New York. The book also described the main character’s close friend as someone with a hot temper, similar to Tommy Egan in the Starz hit series. Larry is suing for $200 million. The similarities have yet to be addressed by 50 or anyone in his camp.
