Episodes of 50 Cent's TV Show 'Power' Leak Online
After thrashing his competitors -- including Being Mary Jane's Gabrielle Union and Empire's Taraji P. Henson on social media -- karma may have landed on the doorsteps of 50 Cent. According to EW, his coveted show, Power, has suffered a leak, as several of the remaining episodes for season four have found their way online.
“The final three episodes of Power’s fourth season were leaked online due to a breach of the press screening room,” a STARZ spokesperson told EW. “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.”
According to the report, the potential culprit streamed the final episodes from a cracked iPhone and then posted the videos he filmed onto his Facebook page. Though the culprit was able to post the videos online, he may have accidentally revealed his identity, since he was talking in several of the clips. As of now, no legal actions have been pursued.
Recently, HBO suffered a similar fate when Ballers, a Game of Thrones episode, and several scripts were leaked because of a server hack.
Billboard has reached out to 50 Cent's representatives for comment.
