50 Cent Laughs Off Break-In at His Connecticut Estate: ‘I Thought I Sold’ That Place

Rapper has been trying to unload now-burglarized mansion for more than a year

50 Cent’s sprawling Connecticut estate took a hit on Tuesday, but one thing’s clear: His sense of humor is still intact.

“Get Rich or Die Tryin'” rapper 50 Cent had a laugh at his own expense — in more ways than one — Tuesday, following reports that his Farmington, Connecticut, estate had been broken into.

“What my house got robbed,I thought I sold that MF,” the rapper, real name Curtis Jackson III, wrote on Instagram, with a report of the break-in. “LOL.”

The joke is rich — in a manner of speaking — for those aware of Jackson’s history with the property. Jackson, who recently underwent bankruptcy proceedings, has been trying to unload he property for more than a year, as CBS notes.

The current asking price for the mansion hovers just under $6 million — though Jackson might consider dropping the price, now that the area has been associated with a break-in.

According to CBS, police arrested suspect Elvin Jones at the estate, after being called o the home at approximately 12:30. Nothing appears to have been stolen from the home.


Joyce was booked onĀ  second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass, third-degree criminal mischief, sixth-degree attempted larceny, and and possession of burglary tools, CBS reported.
