Sources told TMZ 50 Cent was all in to be the lead guest on The Party Tour after initial talks with Chris’ camp, where both sides agreed on his fee for the gig. Live Nation, the company putting on the show also assumed 50 was in and began putting his name and image on promotional materials.
However, when time arrives to sign on the dotted line, Live Nation and 50 were “hundreds of thousands of dollars apart” on terms. There was an attempt to negotiate but the rapper finally dumped the tour two weeks ago. The tour continued to be hyped with 50 for at least another week.
Some fans are now pissed, claiming they bought tickets just to see 50 Cent. The tour kicks off Friday in Baltimore, and TMZ was told no refunds will be given because Chris, the headliner, will be there as scheduled.
