50 Cent Reached A Settlement With The Shade Room Over Their Alleged False Insinuation He Had Penile Enhancement
50 Cent doesn’t just spend all of his time abhorring his oldest son, trolling Madonna on Instagram, and hanging upside down looking like a bat with a bowel obstruction; he also fiercely defends the honor of his allegedly unretouched penis! A few months ago, 50 filed a lawsuit when a picture he took with plastic surgeon Angela Kogan was posted alongside an interview she did with The Shade Room about penis enhancement surgery. Fofty sued Angela, the med spa she owns, and The Shade Room for implying he had his dong lengthened. According to Complex, 50 recently agreed to settle with The Shade Room for an undisclosed amount.
As a refresher, here’s the pic with Angela–who Fitty says he thought was just a fan who wanted a pic with him–and also some of the text it appeared with on The Shade Room:
50 Cent is suing plastic surgeon Angela Kogan and her businesses, Perfection Plastic Surgery and Medspa.

And he took to his favorite platform back in November to comment on the trial date being set:
Though Angela and her business, Perfection Plastic Surgery & MedSpa, attempted to place all of the blame on The Shade Room for implying 50 had the surgery, TSR decided to just get Fofty his “money by Monday” and settle it. But Angela and the med spa are still expected to battle Fif in court.
Fans will recall that the crux of the case is a photo of 50 that was allegedly used by plastic surgeon Angela Kogan and her company. Shortly after news of a trial start date started making the rounds, it was further reported that Kogan’s legal team had attempted to instead blame the Shade Room for having shared the photo, all while 50 argued this was a matter of right of publicity.
Now, as first reported by Los Angeles Magazine reporter Meghann Cuniff, the Shade Room aspect of the case has been settled. In court documents, it’s noted that 50 “has reached an agreement to settle” with the Shade Room. This development, notably, does not have any immediate impact on other defendants named in the case.
Here’s the settlement notice:

50 Cent hasn’t commented on the settlement yet, but the day is still young and his chaotic Instagram should light up at any moment. Now that ⅓ of his au naturel cock campaigning is out of the way, he can focus his energy on more of the things he loves most: 50 Cent, burning bridges, and shitposting!
