Power show boss finally addresses Ghost’s secret daughter rumours with Mary J Blige’s new character Monet – The Sun

POWER may have come to an end after six series but the show's four spin-offs are allowing viewers to get worked about their favourite fan theories.

The hit drama finished last week but will be followed up by four spin-offs, Book II: Ghost, Book III: Raising Kanan, Book IV: Influence and Book V: Force.

Power bosses teased the first look at Book II: Ghost which features Mary J Blige's new character, Monet.

The spin-off follows Ghost's ex-wife Tasha (Naturi Naughton) and Tariq after his death, and features new characters including Monet and Method Man's ethically challenged attorney, Davis Maclean.

Since the first look at the episode fans have gone crazy with the idea the Monet and Ghost have a connection, mainly through a secret daughter.

But showrunner Courtney Kemp shut down those rumours in a recent Instagram Live.

She said: “Does Ghost have a secret daughter by the [Mary J. Blige] character? No he does not, I can just tell you that. He does not.”

Kemp showered the Grammy award winning RnB singer with praise for her performance on set so far.

She told Entertainment Weekly: “We use all the power and presence of the actress to communicate how this is a woman who is remarkable and unique in her abilities.

“She’s as smart, savvy, and strategic as Ghost ever was, but her learning doesn’t come from books.

"We always said Ghost was a bookish kid who read all the time. This woman’s acumen comes from the street.”

Book II: Ghost was set to premiere later this year, but filming was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Power was loosely based on rapper 50 Cent's life as drug dealer to a multi-millionaire entrepreneur.

The sixth season ended with a shocking twist with the revelations that Ghost (Omari Hardwick) was shot and killed by his own son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr).

The latest revelations from 50 Cent and Kemp come after the show runner potentially dropped another bombshell recently.

She hinted James St Patrick has a secret brother – and that he could appear in the Ghost spin-off series.

Kemp dropped the bombshell in a live Q&A on Instagram and left fans wondering if Omari Hardwick could return to play his character's sibling.

Kemp read out the question: "Does Ghost have a secret sister?"

Smirking, she replied: "No. Not a sister. Hint, hint, hint, hint, hint, hint, hint, hint, hint, hint."
