50 Cent can rest easy, because Rick Ross does not plan on any sort of retaliation after the former's gay diss on Instagram this week, insiders report.

Out of the blue, 50 Cent publicly insinuated that record exec Steve Stoute, Rick Ross and Diddy are gay lovers with a series of photos he posted online.

50's post showed Ross leaning in close to Diddy from a weird angle as if they're about to kiss, and another shot of Stoute and Diddy hugging in pink shirts.

His caption said, "something ain't right lol."

He took them down minutes later, but not before word of the diss made it to Ross' camp. There will be no response, however, for one simple reason:

Rick Ross thinks 50 Cent is irrelevant.

Ross plans to let it slide and focus on making hit records, rather than letting a childish beef with an old enemy he doesn't care about consume anything.

Taking the high road and passing up a chance to engage in an epic beef? That's no fun, but it is smart. Kudos, Rick. At least we'll have these feuds ...

50 Cent majorly pushed the envelope yesterday in his beef with three other powerful rap figures, then beat a hasty retreat after apparently getting cold feet.

On Instagram, he publicly insinuated that Diddy, Rick Ross and former record executive Steve Stoute are gay together ... only to delete the pics within minutes.

Afraid of a little retribution, Fiddy? We can't imagine why for the life of us ...

  • 50 Cent Instagram
  • Fifty Cent's Picture

Mr. Cent's two photos featured a pink-shirted Stoute embracing a pink-shirted Diddy, then Diddy and Rick Ross embracing from an angle that suggests kissing.

50 wrote in his caption, "I ain't saying nothing, but something ain't right. Lmao."

The something that wasn't right? His stomach after he posted this. LMAO!

Rick Ross and Young Jeezy's long-festering feud has come to an end, thanks to the negotiating skills of fellow rapper T.I., who brokered a peace treaty.

The rappers' feud goes a long way back, but is most notable for the nuclear fight that broke out at the BET Hip Hop Awards two years ago (above).

They mixed it up backstage with their crews and shots were fired in the parking lot during the Rick Ross-Young Jeezy fight. No one was killed, thankfully.

Those days are ancient history now, in any case, and T.I. is responsible.

Their fellow rapper, who knows a thing or two about running afoul with the law himself, had a heart-to-heart with Jeezy and got him to see the light.

T.I.'s point was that focusing on bad blood rather than makin' bank is a waste of time and energy, plus it may even get you injured or killed. Smart man.

Rick Ross is crushed after getting fired by Reebok deal because of a song that appeared to glorify date rape, believing he deserved a second chance.

Rick Ross, Gold Chains

Ross' song "U.O.E.N.O." boasts "Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain't even know it. Took her home and I enjoy that. She ain't even know it."

Women's groups were unhappy, and even less so after Ross issued a tepid half-apology, claiming he did not say "rape" and was just being misinterpreted.

The shoe company was taking heat for keeping him on the payroll, so Reebok fired Rick Ross, citing that half-assed mea culpa as a big reason.

Reebok has cut ties with Rick Ross in the heat of the recent controversy surrounding some of his song lyrics, which critics say condone date rape.

Rick Ross, Reeboks

In the song "U.O.E.N.O.," he sings, "Put Molly [Ecstasy] all in the champagne. She ain't even know it. I took her home and I enjoy that. She ain't even know it."

A denial-slash-half-assed-apology did not help matters.

Enraged rape victims and female activists demanded Reebok fire Ross from his lucrative endorsement deal, and that's what happened today.

The shoe company said in a statement:

Does Reebok approve of date rape by virtue of business deals with Rick Ross? A leading women's group and scores of rape survivors see it that way.

UltraViolet, an organization that boasts 400,000 members, is incensed the company​ is not firing Ross in the wake of his new song, which alludes to rape.

Rick Ross, Reebok

Ross apologized for the rape lyrics in his song "U.O.E.N.O." last week, but his critics were unmoved, and want the sneaker giant to cut ties with him ASAP.

The group and 150 rape victims say: "Every day that Reebok continues rewarding Rick Ross with a lucrative endorsement deal, Reebok is condoning rape."

Rick Ross sent Twitter messages to fans and sponsors Thursday apologizing for a lyric in one of his new songs that seems to condone rape.

He's been literally under fire - the Rick Ross drive-by shooting investigation is ongoing - and he's taking verbal shots thanks to his "U.O.E.N.O." lyrics:

Rick Ross at Grammy Awards

    Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it
    I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it
.

Last week, Ross seemed unrepentant during an interview with the New Orleans radio station Q93, pointing out only that “the word rape wasn’t used.”

But the criticism continued to build, and he apologized Thursday:

Witnesses to the infamous Rick Ross drive-by in South Florida say another car pulled up beside his Rolls Royce and numerous gunshots were fired, police say.

The rapper then crashed into a nearby building, unharmed.

Ricky Ross

A Fort Lauderdale police report released Thursday says witnesses saw three or four people inside an older model, burgundy or maroon BMW before shots rang out.

He was with his girlfriend, fashion designer Shateria L. Moragne-el, on January 28. The bullets from the Rick Ross shooting struck nearby businesses.

Fortunately, no one was injured in the attempted murder.

He may have been the target of a drive-by shooting attempt, but rapper Rick Ross is laughing in the face of mortal danger these days, literally.

Stepping out in L.A. Thursday with a big smile on his face and a fat cigar in his mouth, he couldn't look less like a guy worried about being offed.

Rick Ross, Cigar

The Rick Ross shooting attempt in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., caused him to crash his car into a building January 28, but he was unharmed, and unfazed.

It's pretty clear that someone has it out for him - a Chicago gang even made a death threat late last year - but he's just layin' back and doin' his thing.

A little too casual, 50 Cent and other conspiracy theorists might say. Fiddy's gone on record alleging that Ross may have staged it all. Was it a hoax?
