News: 50 Cent files for bankruptcy in court

Published

on

Jackson III, otherwise known as 50 Cent, filed for bankruptcy in a Hartford, Connecticut court on Monday.

The rap artist is seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and according to the documents filed by his attorney he owes between $10 million and $50 million to his creditors.

He currently lives in a Farmington, Connecticut estate that he bought from Mike Tyson for $4.1 million back in 2003.

Chapter 11 is a type of filing usually used by corporations to restructure a business in the face of crippling debt. However, 50 Cent is listed as the sole debtor in this case.

The lawyer for the case, James Berman of the firm Zeisler & Zeisler, P.C., could not be immediately reached for comment.

The bankruptcy filing comes on the heels of a ruling in a Manhattan civil court that the rapper must pay $5 million to a Florida woman who says 50 Cent posted a sex tape of her on the Internet in 2009. Further deliberations in that case are expected to continue this week, and could impose additional charges on 50 Cent.

A spokesperson for the law firm that represented 50 Cent in that case — Dallas-based Brewer Attorneys & Counselors — said in a statement that 50 Cent filed for bankruptcy “to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs.”

In addition to selling more than 22 million albums as an artist, 50 Cent is also CEO of the music label G-Unit Records and is behind several commercial products from a luxury sneaker line to EFFEN brand vodka.

The spokesperson, Travis Carter, added that 50’s business interests “will continue unaffected” during the bankruptcy proceedings.

According to news reports, the “Get Rich or Die Tryin” rapper did not testify in the civil case.

Donald Trump is a “foul-mouthed man who pretends to be an idiot” – Iran’s Supreme leader, Ayatollah

Published

on

Reacting to US President, Donald Trump’s intention to decertify the Iran nuclear deal, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, has described Trump as “foul-mouthed” and someone who “pretends to be an idiot.”

 

He spoke before a group of what was described by his office as “hundreds of young elites and outstanding scientific talents” saying that the European opposition to Trump’s decision was “good, but not enough.”

 

“The Europeans must stand up against the US measures including the sanctions they anticipate to emerge from Congress,” he said.

 

Khamenei told his audience that he didn’t want to spend his time commenting on Trump saying “it would be a waste of time to respond to such blatherings and nonsensical remarks by the foul-mouthed US President who pretends to be an idiot, but this should not cause us to let our guard down. They want to take back young, faithful and developed Iran to 50 years ago, and of course this is not possible, but due to backwardness, they are incapable of understanding this reality, and for this reason they have made a miscalculation and suffered, and will suffer successive defeats at the hands of the Iranian nation,” he said.
