Rapper 50 Cent filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy according to records filed in Connecticut Bankruptcy Court.
The courthouse supported to EW that 50 Cent, whose given name is Curtis James Jackson III, reported assets and debts each between $10 million and $50 million.
“This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr. Jackson to continue his engagement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his fiscal affairs,” William A. Brewer III, Jackson’s counsel said in a statement.
