Rapper once again shows off his riches despite Chapter 11 proceeding
50 Cent isn’t letting a simple thing like the legal system stop him from showing off his piles of cash.
The “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper once again took to Instagram to flaunt his wealth, after a bankruptcy judge ordered him to court to explain his tendency to post photos of his riches on Instagram.
“The KANAN Tape now playing ‘I’m Too Rich,” the rapper — who’s currently embroiled in Chapter 11 proceedings — posted to his account on Monday, along with a photo of himself in front of gravity-defying piles of cash.
It’s a bold — and not a little tacky — move for the rapper (real name: Curtis Jackson III), who last week was ordered to court to explain his cash-flaunting ways.
“I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency in the case,” U.S. bankruptcy judge Ann M. Nevins told Jackson’s lawyer. “There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process.”
The rapper’s legal team said Friday that Jackson would appear in court “to make sure that all questions have been addressed,” presumably, if he can find the door behind all those piles of money.
Jackson filed for bankruptcy after being slapped with multi-million dollar damages in a lawsuit stemming from his publication of a sex tape online.
Since then, Jackson has posted a number of photos of himself posing with piles of money. In one instance, he used stacks of cash to spell out the word “Broke.”
