As if Diddy doesn’t already have enough to worry about with the walls of his musical empire caving in on him. His archenemy 50 Cent is about to troll him in ways Diddy never imagined.

Fifty sold a documentary to Netflix that painstakingly details the scandal-filled career of the beleaguered Bad Boy boss who is now being besieged by civil lawsuits, federal investigations, and banishment from music streaming companies.

The multi-part doc is going to specifically delve into the accusations of sex trafficking, sexual assault and an assortment of of other acts of criminality, TMZ reports.

This latest news comes a week after a damning — and perhaps career-killing — surveillance video released by CNN showed Diddy violently beating, kicking, and dragging his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura, whom he dated for 10 years. On Tuesday, May 21, Sean “Diddy” Combs was also slapped with another civil sexual lawsuit by a former model who claims he drugged and assaulted her and then threw her in a cab.

The rapper-turned-TV producer, née Curtis Jackson III,  undoubtedly hopes his unnamed documentary has the same impact that “Surviving R. Kelly” did in completely detonating R. Kelly’s life and career. Based upon Fifty’s previous productions with the ultra-popular shows “Power” and “BMF,” fans believe the series will be multi-layered, insightful and captivating.

From Fifty’s perspective, he will be able to kill two birds with one stone with the documentary: First, Fifty will be handsomely compensated after the media reported that there was a fierce bidding war to obtain the G-Unit founder’s documentary.

Secondly, 50 Cent will be able to further assail Diddy’s reputation while assisting in the toppling of a titan who has reigned over popular culture for the better part of three decades.
