50 Cent’s brand new TV show BMF has just dropped on STARZ, and fans couldn’t be more excited.
The series is about the famous Black Mafia Family, a drug trafficking and money laundering organisation in America.
It follows the story of two brothers, Big Meech and Terry Flenory who founded the group.
Now, everyone wants to know them a little better. Who is Demetrius Flenory aka Big Meech? And how many kids does he have?
Who is Big Meech?
Demetrius Edward Flenory, or Big Meech as he’s better known, is one of the founders of the notorious Black Mafia Family.
He built up and ran the drug empire in the 1980s alongside his brother Terry Flenory, starting out selling cocaine on the streets of Detroit whilst at school.
In 2007, Big Meech and his brother pleaded guilty to running a criminal enterprise and were sentenced to 30 years in prison.
His sentence has been slightly reduced after he completing his GED and a number of other classes, and he is now expected to be released in 2028 instead of 2031.
The drug empire was at its peak in around 2003, when hundreds of kilograms of cocaine were being brought from Mexico to the USA every month.
Before the FBI dismantled it, the Black Mafia Family was estimated to have made over $270 million.
The pair also founded BMF Entertainment, a hip-hop record label that signed Fabolous, Trina, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy and many more.
Does he have any children?
Big Meech only has one known child, Demetrius Flenory Jr, or Lil Meech as he’s known.
He is a music artist and actor, and goes by the name @lilmeechbmf on Instagram where he has 445,000 followers.
The 21-year-old was born in Detroit and has no association with his father’s criminal activity.
Lil Meech is actually playing his father in 50 Cent’s new series BMF, his acting debut.
Big Meech probably has more kids
Whilst Lil Meech is the only one of Demetrius’ children we actually know about, he probably has many more.
He always kept his personal life very private, but he has been with a number of different women over the years.
One rumour suggests that Big Meech is actually Lori Harvey’s father, a socialite and influencer who is in a relationship with Michael B Jordan.
Lori’s mother is Marjorie Elaine Harvey, who many think had a relationship with Big Meech. However, this has never been confirmed.
If it were true, Big Meech could also be the father of Lori’s siblings Morgan and Jason Harvey, who have all been adopted by their stepfather, TV presenter Steve Harvey.
