50 Cent raised eye brows when he started flashing cash on Instagram after filing for bankruptcy protection last year and now a Connecticut judge wants answers.
50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, filed for bankruptcy in July, days after a jury ordered Fif to pay $5 million to Rick Ross‘s baby mama, Lastonia Leviston, who accused Mr. Jackson of posting a sex tape of her online. He was also ordered to pay her an additional $2 million.
The 50 Cent cash flashing IG photos caused Judge Ann Nevins to be concerned about the “allegations of nondisclosure and lack of transparency” at a February bankruptcy court hearing.
The Judge asked 50 to explain the photos of him posing next to a pile of cash with the bills arranged into letters spelling out the word “Broke.”
Here are other 50 money shots.

Fif’s response was clear. “Just because I am photographed in or next to a certain vehicle, wearing an article of clothing, holding a product, sitting next to what appears to be large sums of money or modeling expensive pieces of jewelry does not meant that I own everything in those photos,” he wrote. He’d also go on to say that those post contained fake cash.
Seems things have turned in the last few hours. Here are a few lead up posts from the “Get Rich Or Die Trying” rapper before he decided to quit Instagram.

When a judge reads a prepared statement to start proceedings to state they treat everyone the same in court. You should be concerned, I already new I would be treated differently. They know the difference between chapter 11 and chapter 7 they just never saw anyone from HipHop culture use it. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #thisimageiscourtapporved
I have millions of dollar in my company’s, the court knows this. I was accused of committing fraud with nothing but a IG photo. I can careless what these people think of me but it’s not right. Now someone from secret service is asking if prop money was counter fitted. How the fuck would I know that shit head? Smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #thisimageiscourtapporved
