It appears as if 50 Cent cannot stay out of trouble, the rapper finds himself embroiled in more controversy. Last week, 50 Cent was sued over his film, Things Fall Apart. While self-financing the film, the rapper reached out to Crispy Twig Productions for casting, agreeing to pay $5,000 a week for 19 weeks to the company.

The head of Crispy Twig was under the impression that cast members, James Caan and Diana Rodriguez, were under contract with the film. However, they recently revealed they had not made any commitment to the film. There were rumors of Mario Van Peebles directing the film, but there is no director on board either.

Starting in May 2010, the film was supposed to be produced in the state of Michigan. 50 Cent had lost over 60 pounds in order to play the role of a high school football player who discovers he has cancer. But, things ended up falling apart for 50 Cent, as he fell $90,000 behind in payment to Crispy Twig and the film has yet to come out.

Crispy Twig Productions is suing 50 Cent for $200,000 in missed business opportunities and the payments missed by the G-Unit general.
