50 Cent gets ‘a little gangsta’ with Streep

50 Cent forms unlikely friendship with Meryl Streep at basketball game in New York.

50 Cent has a new BBF in the form of Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep.

The unlikely duo seemed to be having a ball as they sat next to each other at a Los Angeles Lakers vs New York Knicks basketball game in New York on Sunday.

And as soon as the game was over, 50 was uploading pictures with the 64-year-old thespian to his Instagram page.

“Things got a little gangsta. Lol TURN UP, Turn Down for what!#smsaudio,” he wrote alongside a picture of the two of them and Lakers star Kobe Bryant posing with their arms crossed.

50 – whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III – decided to take in the game instead of heading to the Grammy’s that were taking place in Los Angeles.

But the 38-year-old seemed thrilled with his decision after spending the evening with Meryl and her husband Don Gummer.

“Best ball KOBE, Best Rap 50,Best Actress Meryl Streep. TOP THAT #SMSAUDIO,” he captioned another picture featuring the three of them with their arms around each other.

50 and Meryl seemed to get along like a house on fire throughout the game.

Sitting in the front row at Madison Square Garden, Meryl giggled constantly and was even spotted holding 50’s hand at one point.

Meryl was no doubt enjoying some downtime in the midst of this year’s awards season. This year she has been nominated for a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

And on March 2, Meryl will find out if she has won her fourth Oscar for her role in August: Osage County.
