50 cent made headlines last year filing for bankruptcy whilst reportedly owing $41 million to creditors, but that hasn’t stopped him flashing the cash via Instagram and now the star is in a heap of trouble.
Curtis James Jackson III (50 Cent) is being thrown back into the court limelight after his recent Instagram posting has shown him stocked up with a whole lot of cash even after his bankruptcy claims. The star over the past few months has gone off to openly show his wealth with a post or two like this:
It’s no surprise that the superstar is still balling in cash even after all the news. The star filed for bankruptcy after he was ordered to pay Lastonia Leviston just upward of $7 million in a sex tape lawsuit. Leviston, ex-girlfriend of rapper Rick Ross, spotted the photos online and has consequently brought them to the attention of Judge Ann Nevins who, upon hearing, expressed their concerns.
50 Cent’s lawyers are claiming however that the photos are irrelevant to his claim due to the fact the star’s social media pages are used to promote his brand and aren’t an accurate reflection of the rapper’s wealth:
“By including pictures from [Mr. Jackson’s] social media accounts and implying that [he] is hiding assets…the [three creditors] intentionally ignore that [Mr. Jackson] is in the entertainment and promotion business and must maintain his brand and image (or those of the products he is promoting).”
Uh oh, looks like 50 Cent is in a heap of trouble.
