Dummy ’50 Cent’ gets hauled back to court by bankruptcy judge to explain cash in Instagram posts

Rapper 50 Cent is about to learn a valuable lesson in being careful about what to post on social media.

The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July days after a woman won a multimillion dollar lawsuit against him over a sex tape, but pictures he posted to Instagram call into question how bankrupt he really is.

Bankruptcy Judge Ann Nevins has ordered the superstar to appear before her in court to explain where he got stacks money that he flaunts in several pictures, as if to mock the bankruptcy declaration.

In one picture Jackson spelled out the word “broke” in stacks of cash.

Another picture showed piles of cash in his refrigerator with the caption “Gotta keep a cool little $tash and some Effen Vodka Happy Holidays.”

A third picture show the rapper in bed surrounded with piles of money.

According to the Wall Street Journal the pictures were brought to the judge’s attention by Lastonia Leviston, the woman who won the lawsuit against Jackson but has since been unable to collect.

“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 in court documents, the Journal reported.
