If you haven’t heard the news, earlier this week, superstar rapper Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Despite a long list of smash hits and a massive payout from Vitamin Water stock, it’s time to reorganize for old Curtis. While Jackson cites examples of Walt Disney and Donald Trump as other hugely successful businessmen who’ve had to take a step back to “reorganize,” others speculate that the filing might have something to do with a $5 million settlement over a sex tape. 50 was apparently ordered to pay this large sum to a woman named Lastonia Leviston in regards to a 2009 sex tape he may have released to fan the flames of conflict with rival rapper, Rick Ross.
Throughout his career, the rapper famous for being shot 9 times and continuing on the path to gangster rap glory has also built quite a name for his exotic taste in vehicles. According to sources, 50 keeps a Range Rover, his Bentley, one of his Murcielagos and his signature blue Yamaha motorcycle in LA, to name a few. Meanwhile in New York, the rapper keeps two bulletproof Chevy Suburbans.
To be clear, it’s pretty unlikely that 50 is actually broke; it’s important to note that Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection is different than Chapter 7 where 50 would have no choice but to liquidate his assets.
Hopefully it doesn’t come to that for the famed rapper. Today we’ll take a look at 50’s cars to see just what could be coming up for auction if he has to ‘reorganize’ his car collection.
