50 Cent Tells Court He Was Just Posing With ‘Prop’ Money

50 Cent has had his fair share of money woes the past few months.

But just weeks after claiming to be $36 million in debt and filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, he was posting photos with stacks of cash on Instagram.


Secret Service officials questioned the rapper about the money in question, asking if it was legit or counterfeit cash. He was then ordered to appear in bankruptcy court in Hartford.


50’s lawyers told the court the cash in question was fake and used only as “marketing props.” But the U.S. trustee’s office will continue to investigate the entertainer’s finances.
