50 Cent has extended an apology to Madonna after he mocked a recent photoshoot of hers.
Last week saw the Like A Virgin singer post a series of raunchy photos to Instagram which featured her lounging around a bedroom in leather lingerie and fishnets.
The rapper joked about the pictures, one of which saw her bottom and legs sticking out from under a bed.
He shared a now-deleted post of Madonna’s legs edited into a frame of 1939 The Wizard of Oz film to make her look like the Wicked Witch of the East, who is crushed by a house.
In retaliation the 63-year-old posted a throwback shot on Wednesday of herself alongside 50 Cent, real name Curtis James Jackson III, stating that he was “jealous”.

“Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend. Now you have decided to talk smack about me!" she said.
“I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media, the least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult. You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you’re my age!
“Too bad there are no sour grapes emojees(sic),” Madonna added before sharing videos of herself with a filter over her face promoting a message of self confidence.
50 Cent, 46, later used Twitter to say sorry to the star while sharing a screenshot of her scathing Instagram Story about him.
“I must have hurt Madonna feelings, she went and dug up a old MTV photo from 03. ok Im sorry i did not intend to hurt your feelings. I don’t benefit from this in anyway i said what i thought when i saw the picture because of where i had seen it before i hope you accept my apology,” he said.
Madonna’s original photos had been removed from the platform due to an apparent breach in nudity regulations.
She later reuploaded the shots with emojis covering up the exposed parts of her breasts, but used the caption to hit out at the nudity policies.
“I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification….. The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed.
“It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple.”
