2. 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy protection
50 Cent used to be in the red with a whopping debt of 32.5m USD and had to file for bankruptcy protection (Chapter 11 in the American Bankruptcy Court) for Connecticut District.
The filing was made only 3 days after a jury requested him to pay 5m USD for Lastonia Leviston after the woman claimed 50 Cent defamed her by intentionally leaking a sex videotape of her.
The Connecticut bankruptcy filing reveals the notorious rapper holds a property of 7 spicey cars featuring a 1966 Chevrolet Coupe and a Rolls Royce Phantom.
