HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — He’s already explained himself to a bankruptcy court judge, but 50 Cent says the Secret Service is now asking about the wads of “prop” money he used in social media post
The rapper, whose name is Curtis Jackson III, wrote in an Instagram post Thursday night that the Secret Service has asked if the fake money was counterfeited. Making his point with a couple expletives, 50 Cent says he doesn’t know.
Secret Service officials and 50 Cent’s lawyers and representatives didn’t return messages seeking comment Friday.
The rapper, who burst onto the music scene in 2003 with his debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin,” has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, citing debts of $36 million and assets of less than $20 million. He and his top creditors have reached a preliminary deal for him to pay at least 74 percent of his debt to them.
50 Cent also complained in Instagram posts on Thursday and Friday about being treated unfairly by the court system.
He also said he was quitting Instagram.
