Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson appeared before a Connecticut Judge on Thursday in his ongoing bankruptcy case. Jackson filed for bankruptcy last summer claiming debts in excess of $28 million although, his net worth is estimated at $155 million.
Judge Ann Nevins expressed dismay about the rapper’s flamboyant Instagram posts saying, “I am not trying to impede on anyone’s right to exercise free speech. But I would appreciate it, if we can keep the tone of this case very serious”, inferring that the “I Get Money” rapper is making light of the court case. Judge Nevins continues saying, “There is nothing funny going on here. This is all very serious business.”
The diamond selling rapper has made a flurry of Instagram posts showcasing expensive car purchases, large quantities of cash, jewelry, amongst other extravagant lifestyle accessories following his bankruptcy filing. In 2015, Curtis received harsh criticisms from fans after spelling out the word “Broke” in cash.
“You have all been advised. This not funny”, Nevins reiterated. Curtis responded to the court’s recommendations saying, “Instagram? Nah that’s not me anymore.”
