HARTFORD, CONN. – Rapper 50 Cent says in a Connecticut bankruptcy court filing he spends $108,000 a month on his expenses, including $5,000 for gardening.
He has a monthly income of $185,000, mainly from royalties and interest on his investments. But he’s paying $72,000 a month to maintain his suburban Hartford mansion.
He filed for bankruptcy last month after New York City jurors ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who said he posted online a crudely narrated sex tape she made with a boyfriend.
His Monday court filing says he also owes money to his stylist, his barber and his fitness coach.
