Move along, nothing to see here. 

It seems 50 Cent is the perfect boxing promoter, because he is quite adept at using smoke and mirrors to give the illusion of something that just isn't there. 

For whatever reason, the hip-hop star and BFF to Floyd Mayweather Jr. took to Twitter in an effort to set the record straight on alleged beef between him and his boxing bud. 

Jocks and Stiletto Jill spotted a few tweets from 50 Cent on Sunday night that serves to prove the dust-up they had was all a farce. 

This comes on the heels of a Friday war of words the two shared on social media sites, making many fans believe the two best friends were actually former pals. 

Judging by some of the images from that brief battle over at Jocks and Stiletto Jill, you could see how fans would think a Bromance came to an explosive conclusion. 

Now we know better, and it was all to stoke the fame of one Money May.

We should have known. 

The first tweet from 50 Cent is not surprising to say the least.

I'm sick of all this nonsense Floyd asked me to act like were fighting cause no one was paying any attention after his 60 days.#SMSaudio

There are just some things you don't joke about. It took a couple days and wisdom from his grandmother to have 50 Cent sing on Twitter about the faux war.

Domestic violence is very serious my apologies,my grand mother said we need to stop playing I'm done sorry#SK

More clarification that this was all to put the spotlight back on Money.

I know some the thing we do in hip hop for shock value are wrong. He just wanted some attention Floyd is like a brother to me.#SMSaudio

This promoting business seems to really weighing heavily on this heavy-hearted millionaire. Poor guy.

I always tweet thing for him like follow his fiancée and help promote him but one, I'm done with please don't ask me about it. #SMSaudio

All this means is the two may or may not have had very real beef explode on Twitter. What we can assume is Money's need to be the talk of the town was at the heart of it. 

The man doesn't want to be loved, he just loves to hear his name. 

Follow me on Twitter for more nonsense.
