Celebrity real estate: 50 Cent desperately seeking renter for Connecticut estate


Rapper 50 Cent, who filed for personal bankruptcy last month, is struggling to lease his Connecticut estate, valued at nearly $8.3 million.

According to The Hartford Courant ,the disclosure came Wednesday during a meeting of creditors. The meeting was conducted by U.S. Trustee, a federal agency that oversees bankruptcy proceedings. A lawyer for 50 Cent, Stephen Savva, said while no deal has been reached to lease the Farmington mansion, which the rapper purchased in 2003, he is making every effort to sublet the mansion, which features 21 bedrooms, 9 kitchens, and a casino to boot. However, it appears the Get Rich OR Die Tryin’ actor hasn’t had much luck.

Although there’s no word about how much 50’s asking, bankruptcy docs show he’d been paying $72,000 per month just for maintenance on the mega-mansion. Ouch!

If you’re playing catch up, the rapper, who was born Curtis James Jackson III, filed for bankruptcy in July after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who said he posted online a sex tape she made with a boyfriend.

Oddly enough, 50 Cent isn’t the only star to have filed for bankruptcy while holding ownership of the property. Previous owner Mike Tyson went bankrupt while living there, and a Lithuanian businessman also went belly up when he called it home. Can you say money pit?!
