50 Cent has filed for bankruptcy in the US. He was recently ordered by a jury to pay a woman $5million after she sued him for releasing their sex tape online.
Curtis James Jackson III has business interests in a lot of areas including clothes, drinks, boxing, mining and of course singing and acting.
With a stage name like '50 Cent' and filing for bankruptcy it was only a matter of time that the jokes would start flying:
50 cent going bankrupt makes no cents to me

50 Cent went bankrupt? That's impossible, his name alone is worth at least... 50 cent. *slaps knee*

A guy named Bolt is fast & a guy named 50 cent is bankrupt. Not saying names are important but to be safe I'm naming my kid Rich McBeautiful
