Social media has been known to sneak up on all of us at one time or another. The point? Be careful what you post; it might come back to bite you. If you don’t think so, just ask mega-rapper 50 Cent (a/k/a Curtis J. Jackson III). That’s because 50 Cent–who is in bankruptcy–has a federal judge who is overseeing his bankruptcy case asking about photographs of cash that the rapper has posted on his Instagram account following 50 Cent’s bankruptcy filing. In fact, bankruptcy Judge Ann M. Nevins ordered the rapper to appear in court saying that she was “concerned about allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency in the case.” What is the judge talking about? Well, creditors in the bankruptcy case have alleged that the rapper failed to disclose property he owned, as well as payments he likely got from public performances. (50 Cent owes approximately $30 million to various creditors). To give you a better flavor of what the court is concerned about, check out these Instagram posts from 50 Cent.
According to the rapper’s legal team they will respond and answer the bell. Interesting. We’ll give you “50 pennies” for your thoughts on this one.
