Some Arkansas readers are familiar with the work of the rapper known as 50 Cent. The entertainer, whose legal name is Curtis James Jackson, is also an actor, and has appeared in multiple movies and television projects. Jackson filed for bankruptcy last year, but is now being called back to court to discuss photos that he posed for and then posted on social media. Those photos show him posing with large stacks of cash.
Jackson filed for bankruptcy after losing a lawsuit involving the release of a sex tape. The woman who sued is now entitled to a $7 million payment from Jackson, but she has been unable to collect any of that money due to the open bankruptcy case. She flagged the photos, which were displayed on Jackson's Instagram account, and brought them to the attention of the judge. One of the pictures shows him arranging stacks of money to spell the word "broke," another has him snuggled up in bed with piles of cash.
