Los Angeles, Feb 21 (IANS) Rapper 50 Cent has been ordered to court by a judge after he flashed his bank notes on Instagram.
He was seen surrounded by dozens of $100 bills in one photograph and spelled out “B-R-O-K-E” with the money in another image.
Despite filing for bankruptcy, 50 Cent didn’t look broke at all.
Instead of keeping a low profile, the hip-hop star bragged about his luxurious lifestyle, tweeted about building a house in Africa and shared images from his jam-packed performances.
“I’m concerned about allegations of nondisclosure or a lack of transparency in the case,” said US Bankruptcy Judge Ann M. Nevins during a recent hearing, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process.”
The judge noted that bankruptcy court was a place where “an honest but unfortunate debtor can come into court and seek relief”.
She added: “When that process becomes very public, the need for transparency, I believe, is even higher.”
50 Cent’s legal team assured that the rapper would show up in court “to make sure that all questions have been addressed”.
