Little refresher course for ya: 50 Cent is broke. Dude filed for bankruptcy a while ago, then started posting pictures on Instagram of him with lots of cheddar (is it still cool to say cheddar?). THEN he was ordered back to court because of these pictures (because how can you be broke but still spell out “broke” in cash?).
Fast forward to March 9th in a US Bankruptcy Court, 50’s lawyers explained the cash stacked Instagram photos as using “stage or prop money” which is “routinely used in the entertainment industry, including in movies, television shows, videos and social media postings.” The fake money was being used “as part of the Debtor’s routine social media marketing activities and relate directly to the Debtor’s various business interests.”
