50 Cent just can’t stop posting selfies that show off his big wads of cash even when he’s dragged into federal bankruptcy court for doing exactly that.
Fifty was called on the carpet in Hartford Federal Courthouse in Connecticut recently after taunting his creditors by posing for his Instagram feed with stacks of $100 bills.
No sooner had he left court than he posted yet another selfie taken inside a courthouse hallway. In it, he’s eating a bag of peanut M&Ms with two thick wads of dollars protruding from his waistband.
The photo is captioned, “I had to go to court today because.”
Bankruptcy Judge Ann Nevins is mulling whether to appoint an independent examiner to audit the rapper’s estate and find out where besides his pants he might be hiding any cash.
During the nearly three-hour proceeding, Holley Claiborn, a lawyer for the US Trustee’s Office, argued that Fifty’s Instagram photos “create the perception in the public sphere that you can do whatever you want in bankruptcy as long as you’re in the right profession.”
She added, “The public confidence in the system is eroding because it looks like the debtor is not taking it seriously.”
