50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, filed for bankruptcy in July 2015.  Documents filed in the Connecticut Bankruptcy Court showed that Jackson had assets of $10 million to $50 Million, but his debt was in about the same range.

Although the exact reasons aren’t known for why he filed for bankruptcy, it came a few days after a jury ruled that Jackson must pay $5 million to a woman suing over a sex tape that was posted without her permission, according to the Associated Press.
