It’s safe to say that when it comes to 50 Cent and the court’s recent questions regarding activity on his social media, zero f*cks are given. As previously reported, the rapper, who was ordered to shell out $7 million to Rick Ross’ ex-girlfriend, Lastonia Leviston, following her sex tape suit, was ordered back to court after flaunting his Benjamins stashed in a refrigerator, strewn across his bed, and arranged to spell out the word “BROKE,” via Instagram.
On Thursday, Feb. 18, it was Leviston who brought the New York native’s suspicious activity to Judge Ann Nevins’ attention.
“There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process,” said Judge Nevins regarding her concern over whether the rapper’s money woes are legit. As she pointed out, bankruptcy is for “honest, but unfortunate” individuals looking to start over.
According to CNN, Nevins sided with Leviston. “I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure and a lack of transparency in the case,” she said during the Thursday hearing in Hartford, Connecticut.
Meanwhile, the Southpaw actor’s lawyers came to his defense, claiming the images are simply there to promote his brand and shouldn’t hold any leverage in the claim (or be taken seriously, for that matter).
“By including pictures from [Mr. Jackson’s] social media accounts and implying that [he] is hiding assets … the [three creditors] intentionally ignore that [Mr. Jackson] is in the entertainment and promotion business and must maintain his brand and image (or those of the products he is promoting),” his lawyers said.
Now, just a few short days later, the rapper defiantly posted another money shot. “The KANAN Tape now playing, I’m Too Rich,” the “Hate It or Love It” rapper captioned a snap of himself Monday, posing with towers of green, referencing his song “Too Rich for the B—h.” Not to our surprise, followers both cheered on and reprimanded the 40-year-old for his shameless shenanigans.
“Didn’t the judge just speak to you about this? A hard head gonna make a broke a–!” one wrote.
“50 does not give a f–k,” chimed in another. “They want him back in court for takin pics with money and he does it again. Hahaha.”
All jokes aside, we don’t see 50’s recent move helping his case any. What are your thoughts on the rapper’s decision to post yet another image of himself featuring stacks of cash serving as his background, in spite of the court’s recent motion? Sound off in the comment section below.
