Rapper ordered to court to clear up “allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency”
50 Cent has been ordered to appear in court, after posting photos of himself surrounded with fat stacks of cash online, CNN reports.
According to CNN, the “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper, who is currently mired in bankruptcy proceedings, was ordered to court on Thursday by U.S. bankruptcy judge Ann M. Nevins, who told the rapper’s attorney, “I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency in the case.
“There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process,” Nevins said.
The rapper — real name: Curtis Jackson III — 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.”
Jackson’s legal team said in a statement Friday that the rapper would comply, saying he would appear in court “to make sure that all questions have been addressed.” They added that Jackson “has been forthcoming and transparent with all creditors.”
