50 Cent building mansion in Africa despite recent bankruptcy

The rapper recently uploaded the video to Instagram

50 Cent has claimed that he’s building a new home in Africa despite recently declaring himself bankrupt.

The rapper, actor and business mogul (real name Curtis Jackson) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July, but has since called the move a “strategic business decision”.

Now, Jackson has uploaded a clip to Instagram that allegedly shows his new home being built. The caption reads, “My crib is almost finished in AFRICA. I’m gonna have the craziest House warming party ever.”


He adds, “I’ll explain later. I got a good life Man”, but doesn’t specify where the house is located.


Jackson filed for bankruptcy after being told by a court that he must pay Lastonia Leviston $5m (£3.2m) for leaking a sex tape involving her.

When filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection at the US Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Connecticut on July 13, Jackson claimed assets and debts both in the range of $10-50m (£6.5m – £32m).


50 Cent will play a three-date UK arena tour in November, calling at:

Glasgow SECC (November 4)
Manchester MEN (6)
Newcastle Arena (7)
