The Get Rich or Die Trying star has just made the outrageous claim that rap rival Jay Z wasn't all that famous until he married Beyoncé Knowles!

But he might be a little closer to the mark on this one. 50 Cent also argued that the entrepreneur doesn't have $1 billion in the bank, despite several reports that he does.
