50 Cent Accuses Rick Ross Of 'Staging' Drive-By Shooting

Fiddy has hit out at Ross on Twitter after the incident yesterday...

50 Cent has accused rap rival Rick Ross of 'staging' a drive-by shooting which resulted in him crashing his Rolls Royce yesterday (28th January).

As we previously reported, Ross was thought to be heading east in Las Olas Boulevard at when his vehicle was approached by another car and shot at multiple times.

According to Reuters, police say the rapper - real name William L. Roberts - lost control of the car and hit an apartment building as he tried to escape the gunshots.

Cops later confirmed that Ross, who had been celebrating his birthday at a local diner, and his female passenger escaped without injury.

However, Fiddy has questioned whether Ross' run-in with the gunmen was the real deal, writing on Twitter: "Hahaha fat boy hit the building? Lol it looks staged to me. No hole's in da car."

He then posted a snap of Rick's car on Instagram to prove his point, later adding: "Hahaha that boy was spooked. I ride like OBAMA level 6 bulit proof bomb proof, you already know. [sic]"

Ross and Fiddy have previously never seen eye-to-eye after Rick slammed Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - on his track, Mafia Music.

Despite Jackson's doubts, police have confirmed that they are treating the shooting as an 'an active and ongoing criminal investigation'.
