Judge Unmoved By 50 Cent’s Bankruptcy Filing


Filing bankruptcy seemed like a good idea until 50 Cent’s hearing in the Connecticut bankruptcy court Friday.

In papers submitted to the court, Attorney Patrick Neligan Jr. wrote of his client:

“It is easy to forget that Mr. Jackson grew up in poverty in South Jamaica, a rough neighborhood of Queens, New York. His single mother was murdered when Mr. Jackson was only 8 years old. As a boy, Mr. Jackson dreamed of being a boxer, but by the time he was a teenager, he was caught up in a life of crime.” He continued, “After recovering from his injuries, Mr. Jackson determined to improve his life and focused on his music, went on to become a multi-platinum artist who typifies the American dream, and even became a philanthropist, feeding poor children and helping 9/11 victims,” the papers trumpeted.

Unmoved by his woe is me story, Federal Judge Ann Nevins ordered Jackson to face the second stage of a $5 million sex-tape trial in Manhattan on Monday.

Case adjourned.
