50 Cent Ordered to Appear in Court for His Instagram Stunting in Bankruptcy Case
50 Cent’s constant flossing on Instagram has landed him back in the courtroom. The New York rhymer declared bankruptcy last July but his IG photos say otherwise. Now a judge has ordered him back in court to explain himself.
According to CNN Money, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Ann M. Nevins is worried that Fiddy is not being transparent about his finances. “I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency in the case,” the judge told 50 Cent’s attorney, James Berman.
On Friday (Feb. 19), the G-Unit leader’s legal team issued a statement saying 50 would show up “to make sure that all questions have been addressed.” They also assured the judge that “Mr. Jackson has been forthcoming and transparent with all creditors.”
The issues surrounding 50 Cent’s finances has come up in three separate cases: Sleek Audio, SunTrust Bank (STI) and Rick Ross’s ex-girlfriend Lastonia Lewiston’s defamation case. All three claimants in the bankruptcy case say they’re owed a combined $29 million.
As we previously reported, the New York Post outed him for his flossy Instagram photos, which shows him flaunting wads of cash. In one photo, the “Candy Shop” rapper shows off his possible refrigerator where he freezes his stacks of cash in between the Effen Vodka (because he’s the brand ambassador) and cheese slices.
Of course, we all know that 50 Cent likes to troll so this is par for the course. We don’t think that the 40-year-old rhymer is completely broke, but we don’t know his total assets either.
50’s lawyer in the defamation case, Brett Kimmel, defended the rapper’s flossing on the ‘Gram. “I’m not sure that’s 50’s fridge,” he said in response to the refrigerator photo. “I don’t think he eats processed-cheese products.”
Either way, the bankruptcy judge is going to get to the bottom of this at 50 Cent’s next court hearing.
