50 Cent is heading to court to explain why he’s declaring bankruptcy — while posting pictures of himself surrounded by cash on Instagram.
Curtis J. Jackson III filed for bankruptcy in July. He claims that he still makes millions, but that a flood of expensive lawsuits is killing him.
The guy who got famous for his 2003 album called “Get Rich or Die Tryin” has poked a lot of fun at his financial situation. But now U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Ann M. Nevins is worried the rapper is being outright dishonest.
Since October, 50 Cent has posted several photographs on Instagram of him playing with cash. In one, he’s in bed surrounded by dozens of stacks of $100 bills — easily $50,000 in that picture alone.
