After the 2004 BET Awards, actress Vivica Fox angrily
balked at the notion that she used 50 Cent’s popularity to further her own
career during their short relationship.
“50 Cent might like to think he made me
sexy but I just had to get that out in the universe and let him know no he did
not," Fox told reporters at a press conference during the BET Awards. "Y'all
don't know... I've been quiet for nine long months!"
Fox said that she held no ill will against 50
Cent, but said that she didn’t appreciate him violating her privacy. “He
made it public and he pitted a sister and a brother against one anothe and that
was wrong,” she reasoned.
And of her own career, Fox pointed out her longevity
as an actress in Hollywood, with roles in such blockbusters as “Independence
Day” and the “Kill Bill” movie series.
"I've been in the game for 10, 15 years.
I didn't need to exploit or use nobody,” she said. “I haven't gotta
use nobody for no cover of no magazine.”
