50 Cent is currently going through a court battle with Rick Ross’ child’s mother Lastonia Leviston over a sex tape he leaked during the height of his feud with Ross in 2009. After ruling that the rapper must pay Leviston $5 million in total he then filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy soon after. Now after the judge is proceeding with the rapper having to pay the fee despite filing for bankruptcy, 50 is claiming he’s broke.
Yesterday in court, 50 Cent tried to convince the jury that he’s not rich as he seems and that most of his money and lifestyle can be attributed to him keeping up with his Hip-Hop persona. “Those cars were rented,” says 50 Cent. “It’s like music videos, they say action and you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership” he says according to Page Six.
50 Cent and legal team claims that he is worth nothing over 4.4 million right now and that he’s seen nothing but 3.8 million out of the 38 million records he’s sold. Even as he was trying to play broke he would later go on and admit that he still makes $200,000 a show, and he recently just received that amount for performing in London. With Forbes listing his wealth at $155 million it’s hard to believe that 50’s broke. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
