50 Cent files for bankruptcy

Rapper 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today (July 13)

The Wall Street Journal confirms that In court papers filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Connecticut, the 'In Da Club' rapper reported assets and debts each in the range of $10 million to $50 million.

This surprising news comes just after Fiddy was ordered to pay $5 million (£3.2 million) to a woman who featured in a sex tape that he leaked online without her permission. 

The clip, which lasts for thirteen minutes, features Rick Ross' ex-girlfriend Lastonia Leviston and during recent court proceedings, she explained: "This was something done to me. I didn’t have a choice. I would never, ever do this to myself."
