New York rapper 50 Cent‘s overnight rival Emanuel Gonzalez is letting his legal reps do all the talking. The Big Apple police officer’s team has shut down reports claiming he ordered cops to take out the G-Unit boss last June.

According to Gonzalez’s rep, there’s no truth behind the lethal accusation.

1:22 PM PST — Roy Richter — who serves as the president of the Captains Endowment Association, a union that reps Emanuel Gonzalez — tells TMZ … the allegation that Gonzalez told fellow officers to shoot 50 Cent on sight last year is completely false. Richter tells us Gonzalez never said that, and that he completely denies any suggestion he did. In fact, Richter says it was 50 who put Gonzalez’s safety at risk by allegedly publishing a threatening tweet. (TMZ)

A few hours ago, 50 Cent went on a social media tirade against Emanuel.

According to reports, Gonzalez allegedly put a hit on 50 dating back to last June.

According to a report from New York Daily News, the “In da Club” rapper, 43, was scheduled to attend an NYPD-sanctioned boxing match in June 2018 when deputy inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez allegedly made the threatening remarks. “Mr. Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting with his legal counsel regarding his options going forward,” a spokesman for 50 Cent (né Curtis Jackson) said in a statement to PEOPLE. “He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun.” (People)

Despite the seriousness of the situation, Gonzalez reportedly tried to playfully pass off his shoot on sight reference.

No one recorded the incident, and Gonzalez tried to pass off the bizarre order as a joke. But the matter made its way to police headquarters, which launched a probe. “The incident is under internal review,” a department spokesman said. A source said the Internal Affairs Bureau’s Group 1 — which handles police corruption cases for captains and above — is investigating. (NY Daily News)
