Just days after a judge ordered him to explain similar images. Bankrupt rapper 50 Cent has published another photo of himself surrounded by piles piles of cash. Judge Ann Nevins said last week that the 40-year-old rapper's Instagram photos are raising doubts about his actual need for bankruptcy.
She was referring to several pictures that show him playing with huge sums of cash - arranged to spell out the word 'BROKE', spread around him on a bed or stacked in his fridge.
50 Cent, real name Curtis James Jackson III, seemed completely oblivious to her concerns and shared a similar photo on his Instagram account. The new picture shows him posing in front of a wall of cash made out of towering piles of money.
The rapper filed for bankruptcy in June last year after a judge ordered him to pay millions of dollars to Lastonia Leviston over a sex-tape lawsuit. 'I'm concerned about allegations of nondisclosure and a lack of transparency in the case,' bankruptcy judge Nevins said on Thursday at a hearing in Hartford, Connecticut.
'There's a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process.' She added that bankruptcy is a place where 'honest, but unfortunate' people can get a fresh start, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Three pictures were causing the judge major concerns at the time.
