50 Cent's Wild Super Bowl Party Reportedly Costs Florida Venue Its Lease
St. Petersburg, FL – 50 Cent conveniently forgot about the seemingly endless COVID-19 pandemic over Super Bowl LV weekend and threw a mostly maskless party at Albert Whitted Airport in St. Petersburg, Florida. But the event, which St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman later publicly condemned, wound up costing the venue their lease.
According to Tampa Bay Times, Sky Addict Aviation has just six months to pack up and leave the 3,000 square foot hangar and office space.
Kriseman tweeted at the time, “This isn’t how we should be celebrating the Super Bowl. It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid. We’re going to take a very close look at this, and it may end up costing someone lot more than 50 cent @TMZ.”

Sky Addict Aviations’s five-year term had just been renewed in December 2020. In the termination letter, the city’s director of real estate and property management Alfred Wendler cited a provision in the lease that allows for termination without cause but provides a 180 days notice.
50 was at the helm of another Super Bowl party on Saturday (February 6), which coincided with the 18th anniversary of his landmark debut album Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. The project sold roughly 872,000 copies in its opening week and catapulted the Queens rapper to rap superstardom.
