Wasted it on a 52-room mansion
In 2016, a judge approved a resolution for rapper 50 Cent's bankruptcy proceedings, which had been playing out in public for a year. His problems were mainly wrapped up in his house, whose previous inhabitants also all went bankrupt or even went to prison for bankruptcy fraud. The 50,000 square-foot Connecticut mansion had 52 rooms, nine kitchens, a basketball court, and a $70,000 monthly maintenance and upkeep fee. While 50 Cent still records and releases music, his feuds and public actions compete with the tracks for attention — the latest being a "super spreader" Super Bowl party that St. Petersburg, Florida, Mayor Rick Kriseman called "stupid."
