And, her new life is “doing wonders for her confidence,” a source close to Wendy tells HollywoodLife, EXCLUSIVELY, adding that she feels “amazing” about her body. “50 Cent can try and body-shame her all he wants, but it won’t get to her,” the insider says of the rapper,’s recent Instagram post, where he criticized her legs in an outfit she wore during NYC pride.
“Wendy’s feeling so good about herself, that his lame attempt to bring her down didn’t work. She doesn’t even care about 50 Cent, and finds it funny that he’s still trying to get to her,” the source explained, asking, “Why is he so obsessed with her?”
The Power actor/producer kicked off the month of July with a new jab at his longtime foe, when he shared a screengrab of Wendy’s latest Instagram photo.

The rapper was later accused of body-shaming the host.
