The rapper claims consultant Andrew Jameson tried to procure a reality show for him and his G-Unit business even after the entertainer ended their paid collaboration.

Rapper 50 Cent sued a TV consultant Tuesday claiming the man improperly acted as his agent, collected fees in advance of projects and damaged his reputation with big name networks.

The new lawsuit, filed in Connecticut bankruptcy court, claims consultant Andrew Jameson tried to procure a reality show for Fitty and his G-Unit business even after the entertainer ended their paid collaboration.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, was later “appalled” to learn Jameson suggested they include a “young white girl” in the show to make it more sellable, the lawsuit obtained by the Daily News states.

Jameson also sent “an inappropriate and highly offensive text to an officer of G-Unit in connection with that suggestion,” the lawsuit claims.

When 50 Cent told E! Entertainment that he’d pulled the plug on the unscripted show, the cable network said Jameson and a former attorney already agreed to the final terms and the deal was done, the lawsuit alleges.

The “Get Rich or Die Trying” rapper refused to do the show anyway, and as a result, his relationships with E! and its parent company NBC Universal were “severely damaged,” the paperwork claims.

The 40-year-old music mogul filed for bankruptcy protection in July after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $ 7 million to Lastonia Leviston, the woman who sued him for putting her sex tape online.

Jameson’s lawyer scoffed at the allegations Tuesday.

“In fact, Andrew is the one owed money – several months of unpaid salary plus a percentage of future revenues – and he’s filed arbitration to collect it,” lawyer Eric George said in a statement to The News.

Jackson’s new lawsuit seeks at least $ 810,000 in damages from Jameson.

Leviston said the tape was a personal item she made for and with her boyfriend, Maurice Murray.

Murray handed it over to Fitty, and the rapper later posted it to embarrass rival rapper Rick Ross, who has a daughter with Leviston.
