50 Cent Turned Bad Behavior Into Money For A CAUSE!

Bankrupt 50 Cent Visits The BBC Radio 1

50 Cent just gave away some change!

You may have heard that the rapper openly mocked an autistic  19-year-old named Andrew Farrell on his instagram, and obviously everyone went insane on 50 because in this day and age, that ain’t gonna FLY. 50 then posted a video on his instagram saying, “I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding. There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support.”

The rapper added, “I am calling on my fellow musicians, actors, entertainers and all others who may not have fully considered this cause to join together to help in any way they can.”

Farrell’s family had  asked him to donate $10k to Autism Speaks, an autism advocacy group, as an apology. And the Rapper really did put his money where his mouth is and donated a whopping 100,000 dollars instead.

Generous, but isn’t fiddy BANKRUPT? I’m happy in my heart, but confused in my brain.

Surprise: 50 Cent Has Another Son!

Oh, 50 Cent. How ARE you going to pay for this?

For the last 20 years the public thought 50 Cent had just two sons: 18 year old Marquise Jackson and 3 year old Sire Jackson. This weekend, however, 50 was in for a SURPRISE.  His IG revealed that the dude has a third son, a boy named Davian. 

He shared a picture of himself standing next to Davian, who is shown with tears streaming down his face. “My life is full of surprises, this little guy is my son DAVIAN,” wrote 50 in the caption of the post. “He started crying, I was thinking why you crying I gotta pay for this shit. LMAO.”

Awkward. But for real- how will 50 pay for this shit? Dude’s bankrupt. Sorry, Davian. Hopefully you’ll settle for college at a state school?

Hey, at least 50 looks genuinely happy for this new family addition. In general I consider him to be a pretty good-natured celebrity, though his sense of humor is (obviously) a little wonky.

If 50 Cent’s So Broke, Why’s He Lying In A Giant Bed Of Cash?

Screen Shot 2016-02-22 at 11.00.59 AM

And eating a popsicle?

While he might be eating a popsicle because they’re delicious, it is hard to wrap my head around why 50 Cent‘s snuggling up to a big bed o’ cash if he’s SO BROKE, know what I mean? And his judge felt the same way.

Sure, 50 has a long history of posting photos of himself with stacks of cash on social media- and he’s kept it up into his bankruptcy biz, with an even more aggressive air. Some of his creditors alerted the judge to 50′s many Instagram posts featuring tens to hundreds of thousands in cash, and the judge wants fiddy to ‘splain it to him:

Judge Ann Nevins told the 40-year-old entertainer’s lawyer that his Instagram photos are raising questions about whether he is being truthful about his financial situation.

“I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure and a lack of transparency in the case,” Judge Nevins said at a hearing Thursday in Hartford, Conn., on Thursday. “There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process.” She added that bankruptcy is a place where “honest, but unfortunate” people can get a fresh start.

Earlier court papers put a spotlight on three pictures of 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, with bundles of cash. One picture showed cash piles in his fridge.

And another showed him cuddling with them in bed. He also bragged on Instagram about buying a home in Africa.

The photos were flagged by Lastonia Leviston, who won $7 million in a sex-tape dispute but hasn’t been able to collect that money since Mr. Jackson filed for bankruptcy last summer. Two other groups—Mr. Jackson’s mortgage lender and a partner in a failed headphone deal owed roughly $18 million—joined her in a fight to have an outside financial professional manage his money until he pay off the $30 million he owes creditors.

In response to the social media posts, Mr. Jackson’s lawyers said the photos were included in court filings to “disingenuously smear” him.

“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),” his lawyers said in documents filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Conn.

“All his income was reported,” he told Judge Nevins.

Also on 50′s Instagram are pictures of his Porsche, Ferrari, motorcycle, and like, tons of gold. Not sure why he’s not ordered to sell that off, but all of this sounds like total BS to me. Rich people- they think they can get away with ANYTHING.

Yo Anyone Wanna Rent 50 Cent’s Mansion?

Bankrupt 50 Cent Visits The BBC Radio 1

Hey 50 Cent fans, wanna LIVE the lifestyle?!

Now that he’s bankrupt, the rapper is trying to rent his massive Connecticut estate for a little extra cash.

So where’d that idea come from (I motion to start his own bank- the bank o fiddy- but that doesn’t seem like the right fit for him either)? During a meeting of his creditors on Wednesday his lawyers revealed the rapper is now trying to sublet the mansion which features 21 bedrooms, 9 kitchens, and even a casino.

No word on how much 50’s asking, but bankruptcy docs show he’d been paying $72,000 per month just for maintenance on the place. So, man, you’re gonna have to be really rich to live there, and odds are if you’re that rich you can buy your own tricked-out Connecticut mansion/casino.

The mansion might also be financially cursed (another selling point? Spooky ghosts of debtors past?).  Previous owner Mike Tyson went bankrupt while living there, and a Lithuanian businessman also went belly up when he called it home.

Anyone? Okay, before you say no, why not check it out…
