50 Cent Is Back In Court Because Of His Instagram Posts

50 Cent Is Back In Court Because Of His Instagram Posts

At some point 50 Cent is just going to have to admit he is swimming in money, isn't he? This shit can't go on.

Curtis Jackson was taken back to court this week to explain photos of him on Instagram sat in bed with loads of cash and loads Effen Vodka in his fridge. He even posted a video of himself waking up but not being able to move because of the wads of cash he was buried under.

Judge Ann Nevins didn't rule on Wednesday because 50 Cent's lawyers claimed the money in the pictures was fake. You literally couldn't make this shit up.

Nevins claimed the photos raised concerns that Jackson wasn't being honest about his finances, because he does not want to pay Lastonia Leviston the $7 million she is owed after a court case involving a sex tape.


In a written declaration filed on Tuesday, 50 Cent said the money was just prop money they used for photo shoots and the like while maintaining his 'brand'. The declaration read:

"Hip-hop culture is widely recognized as aspirational in nature. The standard by which artists and fans engage is commonly tied to money, jewelry, products and advertising over social media. Products and brands are now marketed through social media as an effective way to engage with consumers. Just because I am sensitive to the needs of maintaining my brand does not mean that I am hiding assets or that I have lied on my filings in this Bankruptcy Case, neither of which is true."

The US trustee's office has asked the judge to appoint an examiner to review all of the rapper's assets.

In response to this week's proceedings, 50 Cent posted this...


Jackson's financial history is shady as fuck. I wouldn't fancy being that examiner.
