Facing down a $5 million judgment for posting a sex tape of Rick Ross’s baby mama, 50 Cent has declared bankruptcy to prove he can’t pay. It’s somewhat convenient that, after Forbes named him one of the richest rappers in the world just a few months ago, 50 claims his reported $155 million fortune is really just $4.375 million. He said this week that he rented cars and borrowed jewelry to keep up appearances.
50 Cent just found another gear in his ongoing, transcendent Instagram trolling of his former BFF, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather. After offering to donate $750,000 to any charity if Mayweather could read a page of Harry Potter, 50 has upped the ante by arranging for him to do it on national television.
Last night was Summer Jam, the sprawling rap concert hosted by New York radio station Hot 97. Over the years, the event has earned a reputation for sparking unexpected moments, but last night 50 Cent may have topped them all.

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's skills include rapping, surviving gunshot wounds, never masturbating , and clowning on Solange and Jay Z . But, as we saw Tuesday night at the Mets-Pirates game, they don't extend to pitching. The announcers generously described 50's ceremonial first pitch as "a little outside."
The most disappointing thing about Beyoncé's sister losing it at Jay Z in an elevator is the lack of sound on the security tape, which makes it difficult to figure out what the fight was all about. Fortunately, it's 2014, so we have access to technology that can solve this problem: Namely, 50 Cent's Instagram account.
On Saturday, rapper 50 Cent swung by the QVC studios in West Chester, PA and quickly made several bubbly women of a certain age fall madly in love with him.
Remember how a few years ago, 50 Cent accused Oprah Winfrey of being a white woman, just like one in her audience, after she had taken various stances against the facet of hip-hop culture that once made him such a musical force? Me neither, but she sure did and she confronted him on it long and hard in an interview that ran alongside her Paris Jackson sit-down on last night's Oprah's Next Chapter.
