As the fifth season of Power comes to a close, 50 Cent says the STARZ network is blaming him for leaking the season finale. Fiddy, who stars in the show and serves as its executive producer, addressed the situation via Instagram on Wednesday (September 5).
“Now STARZ is mad at me because they think I leaked the last episode of POWER,” he wrote. “well it’s not like I’m acting in it, they will get over it my numbers were bigger last time. LOL get the strap #lecheminduroi.”

This isn’t the first time 50 Cent claimed STARZ accused the Hip Hop powerhouse of leaking an episode. Last year, 50 Cent said STARZ thought he was responsible for leaking the final three episodes of the hit show’s fourth season.
A spokesperson for STARZ issued a statement following last year’s leak.
“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room,” it read. “This seems to be a case of password sharing that resulted in homemade videos of the episodes which were taped off a TV screen and posted online.
“STARZ has begun forensic investigations and will take legal action against the responsible parties.”
The final episode of Power‘s fifth season airs on Monday (September 10).
