For the past three years, 50 Cent and Courtney Kemp have kept us on our toes with their crime drama television series Power. Continuously being renewed due to the overwhelming positive critical response, we’re now approaching the end of season four. Undoubtedly one of the most thrilling seasons, there’s tons of drama happening on and off the screen.
In particular, just last week, the remaining episodes of the season were leaked from Starz’s mainframe and then uploaded in poor quality to a Facebook page.

After this unforeseen incident happened, Starz announced they were ready to take legal action against whoever the culprit of the leaked episodes is. However, according to 50 Cent, the show’s executive producer, executives from the network believe it was done from someone in house.
“Starz thinks I leaked my own show,” 50 captioned a photo on his Instagram page. “Anyway, if you have On Demand catch Power tonight 12:00AM. If not, Sunday 9:00PM it is LOL.”
He also went on to comment under photo to write a fan back, saying, “They know I know when Game of Thrones leaked they had a spike in ratings, so they looking at me side eyed. LOL.”

While 50 has been quite vocal, Starz has yet to address 50’s comments.
What do you think? Is it a publicity stunt to bring your eyes and attention to the end of the season? Or is there real wheeling and dealing going on behind the scenes?
