OMG! 50 Cent shockingly defended Kanye West while stopping by ‘Watch What Happens Live’ on Dec. 1, claiming Yeezy DIDN’T fake his illness for insurance money! He also addressed how Kim Kardashian’s robbery could have led to Ye’s hospitalization. Get the scoop!
What a show! 50 Cent sat down with Andy Cohen, 48, on Watch What Happens Live on Dec. 1, treating the audience to a fun-filled evening with plenty of hot gossip. Of course, the rapper was asked to give his two cents on a plethora of big topics, including Kanye West‘s hospitalization. 50 casually responded, “That was interesting. I kind of felt like I could see that coming.” Andy then addressed how there was speculation in Los Angeles that Ye was having the breakdown to get insurance money. While nodding his head “no,” 50 explained, “He could have just went to work.” He’s got a point, since Yeezy’s Saint Pablo tour was constantly selling out arenas.
50 was also questioned about Kim Kardashian‘s Paris robbery on Oct. 3, to which he responded, “I think that was a part of Kanye’s breakdown.” We’re glad to see 50 being compassionate towards Ye, especially after he seemed to diss him with a mocking clip on Nov. 27. The rapper didn’t shy away from anything on the show, even commenting on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s shocking split. He confessed, “I didn’t see that one coming!” Wisely, 50 also utilized the opportunity to promote his new Frigo Underwear Line, giving fans a peek at his knickers!
Actress Leah Remini also made an appearance, playing a few games with 50 and Andy. She had to guess the lyrics in some of the rapper’s hit songs and needless to say, it was hilarious! In addition, Leah opened up about her new docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath and discussed how distancing herself from the church has been tough. When asked about the claims made against her, she revealed how she has to stay strong, claiming, “it doesn’t hurt me.” Despite the tough topics, we’re glad these two made the most out of their appearance!
