The battle between 50 Cent and hip-hop website HipHopDX continues, with the publication now reportedly suing the rapper for a whopping $3 million.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the music site is suing the star for defamation after he branded it “fake news” in a recent social media post.

The lawsuit allegedly claims: “The celebrity known as 50 Cent has maliciously used his power and influence to falsely attack a small, independent media company for its unfavourable but entirely truthful content.

“In late June 2018, it exposed as false certain public statements made by 50 Cent claiming to have sold the rights to a three-word catchphrase for a million dollars,” it adds, seemingly referencing his “Get The Strap” slogan.

The Blast states the lawsuit continues to allege: “False attacks by celebrities and public figures on journalists and media companies, branding them as ‘fake news,’ have become a powerful weapon for pulling readers away from otherwise respected sources.

“These are not merely political or public relations issues for media companies. Rather, they are attacks on a business and constitute classic defamation – false assertions to the public that are intended to, and do, damage a person or company in their professional reputation.”

ET Canada has contacted 50 Cent’s rep for further comments.

This is not the first time 50 and HipHopDX have come to legal blows, with the rapper previously suing them for allegedly using a photograph without his permission.

50 stated last month that the site took a pic from his Instagram and used it alongside an article about him and Bellator MMA, The Blast, again, reported.
