Chris Brown’s ‘Party Tour’ isn’t the well-oiled machine, according to 50 Cent. And the pay is lousy.
It was the Chris Brown Party Tour featuring 50 Cent and a bunch of other rappers. Then it was the Chris Brown Party Tour featuring… a bunch of other rappers.
So why did 50 Cent bail out at the last minute, after everything was set?
According to new details from 50 Cent, this simply wasn’t a well-planned operation. And that includes basic setup on his inclusion contract. For starters, 50 Cent claims that negotiations had been finalized on his payment prior to the tour starting. Then, at the last second, touring giant Live Nation slashed that offer by hundreds of thousands of dollars.
But the hardball tactic happened only after 50 Cent’s name was put on touring flyers, billboards, and websites. Regardless, the pressure tactic didn’t work, and 50 Cent wouldn’t budge.
“It wasn’t handled correctly.”
Right before the tour started, 50 jumped ship. And someone had to change all those posters (and tickets). “50 Cent I Never Signed Chris Brown Tour Deal… They Can’t Afford Me!” a TMZ report declared.
50 backpedaled on Instagram. Specifically, the rapper pointed to a number of unresolved logistical problems. “I would never say my friends can’t afford me,” he wrote. “This run wasn’t handled correctly. I’m still on set filming Den of Thieves.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Party Tour’ rolled on, despite the fallout. But Chris Brown’s volatile, drug-fueled tirades may also explain why 50 Cent bailed out. That includes an ugly incident in Reno, NV, where Brown declined to perform and forced the club to issue refunds.
In nearby Vegas, the r&b singer managed to recapture his residency at Drai’s after publicly blasting club employees as ‘racists’. A resulting hiatus cost the singer millions in lost revenues, though the recovery suggests some self-awareness.
Then there are still the endless issues involving violence against women. The Rihanna assault is years behind the singer, though Brown is still battling accusations involving his latest girlfriend, Karrueche Tran. Just recently, a federal judge extended a restraining order against Brown, based on repeated threats of physical violence.
Here are the remaining dates of the ‘Party Tour,’ definitely not featuring 50 Cent.

I’m heart broken, I bought a ticket because 50’s name was on it. Chris Brown is great but I grew up listening to 50 </3 UGH.
I am heart broken. I bought a ticket to this tour because of 50!!! I just want to see my favorite childhood rapper perform. 50 got me into rap music. UGH </3
Why people would waste their money on this person is beyond me..
Better to use the money to go out to a nice restaurant and enjoy a delicious meal than sit through one of these dreary concerts..
Why report lies! Stop with the false stories.
Paul Resinoff You must be obsessed with Chris Brown. 50 Cent already said it was lies. Don’t you have something more important to write about. It’s getting boring now bc it’s pretty clear your only interested in being negative so for now on I know to skip over your post. hahaha unbelievable. Chris Brown put on a fantastic show and there were no problems with it’s launch so save your BS please you can’t deceive us.
U people that keep publishing all these really need to get a life. Cause u must be fucking miserable.
first of all, hate him or love him chris never lost his reputation to put a great show. The hate you have for him is unreal and very scary!! just because you keep writing a false story, doesn’t mean his career will crumble down. let’s be real every media tried to tear him down, but it never happened. You keep your fake story we will keep supporting.
Usually, a well-run tour goes ahead with the people listed on the tour flyer. Unless there’s a serious accident or something. 50’s account sounds like it was an amateur operation. Not sure there’s a way to spin that the other way.
Why u so jealous?
but its true…your posts has become 99% LIES mixed with 1% truth. Its not even click-bait or sensation, its just plain lies.
the show is worth seeing….nothing else needs to be said about 50 at this point, he didn’t do the show….but Chris goes on ijs
Don’t know why people continue to try and bring this man down. He is very talented. This Tran thing seem’s shady she has something coming up on TV right. SUSPECT ???
50 cent explain that he was still finishing up a movie. As a “journalist” you should know this but of course journalism 101 is no longer a requirement. The man is selling out arena but that not juicy enough. I’m glad he is continuing to perform and enjoying himself.
