London - 50 Cent claims Rick Ross's crash was staged.

Rick crashed the Rolls Royce he was driving in Florida into a building on Monday morning (28.01.13) after reportedly being shot at from another vehicle but 50 Cent – who has been locked in a dispute with him since 2009, when Rick hit out at the rapper in his song 'Mafia Music' – claims the shooting didn't happen and the accident was staged.

He tweeted: “Hahaha fat boy hit the building? Lol it looks staged to me. No hole's in da car.

“Hahaha that boy was spooked. I ride like OBAMA level 6 bulit proof bomb proof, you already know #SMSaudio (sic).”

Neither Rick nor his girlfriend Shateria L. Moragne-le – who was a passenger in the car – were hurt in the crash which occurred after celebrating his 37th birthday at the Miami nightclub LIV and police in Florida say they are searching for their assailants.

This latest incident comes after Rick was forced to cancel several US concert dates after the Gangster Disciples threatened to crash two North Carolina shows in retaliation for him allegedly using the gang's logo for his mixtape 'Black Bar Mitzvah'.

They were also furious he had compared himself to their imprisoned founder Larry Hoover. - Bang Showbiz
