50 Cent’s Judge Wants to Know How He’s Broke After Discovering His Instagram

A bankruptcy court has asked rapper 50 Cent to explain several pictures he posted on Instagram showing off stacks of cash.

50 Cent Claims He Spends Only $108,000 a Month, Still Spends $5,000 on Gardening

Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson recently reported to a Connecticut bankruptcy court that his spending expenses are limited to a paltry $108,000 every month, according to USA Today.

After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July, Jackson is now spending a good portion of his time in front of a judge. Despite claiming he makes a monthly income of $185,000 from royalties and investments, Jackson reported that he spends $3,000 on clothes and $5,000 on gardening every month. His 18-room mansion in Hartford, Connecticut costs him $72,000 a month to maintain, and he allegedly owes money to his stylist, barber and fitness coach.

One suit was filed by Lastonia Leviston, who claimed the rapper acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator to it, and then published it online without her consent. The jury ordered the rapper to pay $5 million in damages as a result of the invasion of privacy lawsuit.
