50 Cent is now claiming that the ‘stacks of cash’ in his Instagram posts are all ‘fakes’.
According to the New York Times, a judge has now asked Fiddy to explain his various Instagram and Twitter posts which show him posing with large piles of cash.
The rapper originally filed for bankruptcy back in July 2015 – just days after a jury ordered him to pay $5 million (£3 million) to a woman who accused him of posting a sex tape of her online.
In February, judge, Ann Nevins, said that the photos caused her to be ‘concerned about allegations of nondisclosure and a lack of transparency’.
However, Fiddy is now claiming that the cash in the pictures was just ‘prop money’.
Just because I am photographed in or next to a certain vehicle, wearing an article of clothing, holding a product, sitting next to what appears to be large sums of money or modelling expensive pieces of jewellery does not meant that I own everything in those photos.
He went on to say that since the explosion of social media he has had to keep up a strong presence that is ‘consistent with the public persona of 50 Cent’ which may explain all the cash based photos.
However, the questions over his finances don’t seem to have affected him – after he posted this new picture of himself just this week:
I have millions of dollar in my company’s, the court knows this. I was accused of committing fraud with nothing but a IG photo. I can careless what these people think of me but it’s not right. Now someone from secret service is asking if prop money was counter fitted. How the fuck would I know that shit head? Smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #thisimageiscourtapporvedAdvertisement
