GET BITCH OR DIE TRYING
Is there more action taking place behind the scenes of 50 Cent's new movie than in front of the cameras?
He certainly seems to be taken with his beautiful "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" co-star, Joy Bryant.
"Joy has a history of hooking up with her leading men," a snitch says of the actress, who was linked with Usher after the two appeared in a 20-minute musical short. "But her and 50 are keeping this quiet. They avoid each other on the set, but there is a lot of sneaking into each other's hotel rooms."
Some have even suggested Mr. Cent might have a rival for her affections in a certain former male model among the cast.
"50 isn't a fan of competition in business or pleasure," the insider says. Luckily, it seems he may not know about his romantic rival. (Oops!)
