50 Cent Reveals $108K-A-Month Expenses In Bankruptcy Trial

After declaring himself bankrupt last month, 50 Cent has been revealing his expenses in a bankruptcy court - and with the $5000 he spends on his garden every month, it seems he might just be America’s answer to Alan Titchmarsh.

Well, sort of.

According to The Associated Press, 50 Cent has revealed that his outgoings total $108K-a-month (roughly £69,250), which includes $72,000 (£46,153) to maintain his Connecticut mansion and a casual $5000 (£3200) spent on gardening.

Fiddy ‘Green Fingers’ Cent’s house contains 50 rooms, its own private casino, a basketball court and nine kitchens.

Pfft. Who needs all that when you’ve got a studio flat with just about enough space to cook a pot noodle in, eh?


50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson III, also spends $9000 (£5769) on security, $3000 (£1923) on his wardrobe and $1000 (£641) on grooming each month.

He had previously denied owning expensive cars and living more of a, er, fancy lifestyle in the Lastonia Leviston court case, in which he was ordered to pay $5 million in damages to Lastonia for allegedly buying her sex tape and posting it online without her permission.

However, this new filing states he owns seven cars, including three Chevy Suburbans and a Rolls Royce.

He also gives $14,600 (£9359) a month in support of his two children, Marquise and Sire, and his grandfather, and owes his stylist Erin McSherry, his barber, and personal trainer money.


He does have an income of $185,000 (£118,593), which mainly stems from royalties and investments.

He has previously described filing for bankruptcy as a “strategic business move,” with his attorney at Brewer, Attorneys and Counselors explaining it “allows Mr Jackson to reorganise his financial affairs, as he addresses various professional liabilities and takes steps to position the future of his various business interests.”

They added: “Mr Jackson’s business interests will continue unaffected in the ordinary course during the pendency of the Chapter 11 case.”

He is due back in court on Wednesday.
