Another lawsuit has been filed in relation to another suit involving Power executive and hip-hop entrepreneur, 50 Cent and a former drug dealer named Corey “Ghost” Holland. In recent paperwork filed, Holland is suing Lionsgate Entertainment for $300 million.

According to AllHipHop, Holland, who is a former hustler who was involved in the illegal drug trade in his younger days, is accusing the company of enabling 50 Cent to set off a vicious and sustained intimidation campaign against him. He is going after Lionsgate because he feels the company knew that 50 Cent was doing so but did nothing to stop or interrupt the BMF executive producer.

Holland states that Lionsgate Entertainment knew that 50 Cent’s actions were illegal and the rapper was displaying harmful behavior but still hired and permitted him to develop and produce the hit drama series, Power.

in the paperwork filed, Holland is requesting $300 million in damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence in hiring and retention, among other charges. He is also suing to disallow Lionsgate Entertainment from using his life story in any future work without his expressed consent and compensation.

Several weeks ago, Holand accused the Many Men rapper of “pulling up” on him because he sued him alleging that the rapper based his Power series on him.

According to court documents that were obtained by AllHipHop, Holland claimed that the Get Rich or Die Trying recording artist came to his place of residence, not once, but twice in 2021. Holland accused 50 of retaliating against him for filing the lawsuit.

AllHipHop previously reported that, in 2021, Holland filed a billion-dollar lawsuit against 50 Cent, Courtney Kemp, and the STARZ network insinuating that Power was based on his life. Holland alleged that the seven acts in a CD he released, Blasphemy, are identical to the seven seasons of the Starz television series, as well as the first two seasons of Power Book II: Ghost.

He also claimed that back in 2007, the former drug dealer mailed a copy of that CD to Kemp’s father. The album had an autobiographical song where he raps about being a “drug lord.” He fell in love with his “teen crush” who was Puerto Rican and found out from his drug trafficking partner, who happened to be white, that she now worked in law enforcement. Basically, the premise of the hit show that starred Omari Hardwick.
