Oprah Winfrey isn’t stupid … she knows 50 Cent named his dog ‘Oprah’ to diss the talk show queen after a recent feud … and when the two sat down together, she totally called him out on it.

“I heard you have a dog named Oprah … that was not a compliment,” she said to the rapper.

Fiddy sheepishly replied, “I love you … you know how they say a dog is a man’s best friend?”

During the confrontation, part of Oprah’s new show, “Next Chapter,” … 50 explained how he felt Oprah’s famous campaign against the N-word and degradation of women in hip hop felt like a personal attack.

“I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD … and I was like, ‘She doesn’t like me.’ ”

So why name the dog Oprah? 50 told her O-ness, “At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn’t even know me.”

50 said he also got a cat … and named it Gayle.

But now, the hatchet appears to be buried … and 50 even told Oprah he pampers the hell out of the animals … even hiring a babysitter to take care of them while he’s out of town.

Beef squashed.
