50 Cent arrives in court to explain cash piles
HARTFORD, CT - Rapper 50 Cent has arrived at a Connecticut courthouse to explain photos of him with piles of cash to the judge in his bankruptcy case.
Judge Ann Nevins ordered the rapper, whose name is Curtis Jackson III, to appear at a hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford on Wednesday afternoon.
Nevins wants Jackson to explain several Instagram photos, including one of him next to piles of cash arranged to spell "broke." The U.S. trustee's office is asking Nevins to appoint an examiner to review the rapper's assets.
Jackson says the stacks of cash aren't real and he isn't hiding any assets.
Jackson filed for bankruptcy last year after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who said he posted her sex tape online.
