*The lawsuits keep piling up for rapper Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson.

Now the mogul is being sued by Larry Johnson, an author who claims to have penned a manuscript in 2005 that reads similar to the premise of 50’s hit cable series “Power.”

According to TMZ, Johnson’s “Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid” was given to Nikki Turner, an employee at Jackson’s G-Unit Books. The title was published, but Johnson claims Curtis turned his book into “Power.” He states the similarities come across in the character name “Ghost,” a pen name in the publication. Ghost owns a lucrative nightclub in Atlanta, and “Power” has a “Ghost” character running the “It” nightclub in New York. The book also described the main character’s close friend as someone with a hot temper, similar to Tommy Egan in the Starz hit series.


Larry is suing for $200 million.

The similarities have yet to be addressed by 50 or anyone in his camp. Meanwhile, the rapper continues to promote season 3 of the series on Instagram.

In related news, even though Curtis filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in July, he’s not so cash poor that he can’t afford to build a new home in Africa. He recently shared an Instagram video showing off his new place, along with the caption:

“My crib is almost finished in AFRICA,” he wrote without specifying which country his new home was built in. “I’m gonna have the craziest housewarming party ever. I’ll explain later. I got a good life, man.”

Jackson’s bankruptcy filing was a protective financial move, he told E! News in July. He filed three days after a judge ordered him to pay Rick Ross’ baby momma $5 million in damages after it was determined he posted a 2009 sex tape online without her permission.

“You know when you’re successful and stuff, you become a target. I don’t wanna be a bull’s-eye,” he said. “I don’t want anybody to pick me as the guy that they just come to with astronomical claims and go through all that.”

POWER season3 will be even better. We are turning it up a notch. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO
