Appearing on Watch What Happens Live in a segment tagged 50’s two cents, the rapper whose real name is Curtis Jackson was asked his opinion on a number of recent showbiz news and he revealed he’s not surprised at Kanye West’s hospitalization due to mental issues. ‘Oof! That was interesting ’cause I kind of like, felt you could kind of see that coming,’ he said. ‘In pieces, it was like, little outbursts.’
He surmised that Kim Kardashain’s robbery in Paris the month before played a big role in it.
‘I think that was a part of Kanye’s breakdown,’ he opined. He was quick to defend Kanye against claims the rapper is faking it in order to win an insurance payout for cancelled concerts. ‘Nooo!’ he insisted. ‘He could have just went to work.’
On Mariah Carey’s separation from James Packer he said: ‘He said she was too expensive, he knew what he was getting into.’
But 50 pointed out they ‘still need to settle the friendship’ adding he should pay her ‘a few million dollars because she stopped doing what was on the schedule.’
He said he did not see Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s split coming. ‘Where does Brad go now?’ he wondered.
