Teairra Mari has already made a song about being broke. She has made video skits talking about it, and she also declared it to her 1.5M Instagram followers. Now the singer and “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” reality star told a judge in court that she is too “broke broke” to pay rapper 50 Cent.

As rolling out previously reported, the woman born in Detroit as Teairra Marí Thomas, was ordered to pay Fifty, aka Curtis Jackson, back $30K after losing her lawsuit that accused Fifty of revenge porn. Teairra said her former boyfriend leaked tapes of their sexual encounters and that the 43-year-old Fifty reposted it on his Instagram page to humiliate her.

Immediately after winning the case, 50 Cent began torching Teairra, 31, on IG and Twitter, demanding all of the money owed to him and threatened to take her “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” checks if she fails to pay up right away.

Speaking of Teairra’s checks, the “I ain’t GOT IT” songstress disclosed to the judge this past week that, despite being paid $100K per year for appearing on LHHH, she is “broke broke” and cannot pay 50 his money.

Teairra also told the judge that she only covers her own phone bill, but that her rent is paid by her boyfriend and that her other expenses are taken care of by other people, The Blast reports.

Fifty, however, believes she is lying and is actively “hiding her assets” to avoid reconciling her debt to him. He is asking the judge to make Teairra cough up another $25K on top of the $30K that she already owes him for allegedly playing legal games to avoid payment.
