More details are emerging about Curtis Jackson III’s finances and the pseudo-lifestyle of riches he perpetuated. But we’re still giving him the side eye. Find out about his bankruptcy inside and watch Safaree Samuels’ new girlfriend in her first interview…
A few months ago, we found out the Curtis Jackson III aka 50 Cent was allegedly broke. We only found out about his alleged financial struggles after he and his high-powered legal team claimed to a judge that he could not afford to pay $7 Million to Lastonia Leviston (aka Rick Ross’ baby momma), after she sued him for posting her sex tape online. That’s the backstory.
Since all of that went down, folks have been trying to understand how the Instagram Stunna could possibly be broke? We’ll we’ve got a lil’ breakdown. How’d we’d get it? Well….bankruptcy filings are public record. Curtis filed in a Connecticut court Monday and the ish hit the fan aka ‘da innanets’.
In federal court, Curtis Jackson III claims he has 25 million in assets, BUT $33 million in liabilities.
-an $8 million Connecticut mansion
-a $572,000 home in Valley Stream, LI,
-an Atlanta home worth $464,000.
-10 million in cash,
-$500,000 worth of cars including three Chevy Suburbans and a 2010 Rolls-Royce.
– $7 million judgment owed to Lastonia
– $18 million debt to Sleek Audio (they sued him after their headphones deal went sour)
-He claims G-Unit Records and G-Unit Brands have cost more than $10 million over the last three years with at least $10.45 million in losses
-He makes $3 million a year from his performing and recording career
-He makes $370,000 from his boxing-promotions company SMS Promotions, and another $771,000 from books, films and touring under his G-Unit, and other, entities.
-He claims $108,000 in monthly expenses, (a $5,745-per-month Bentley car lease; $12,000 in child support for two kids; $5,000/month for gardening, $1,500 for pool maintenance and $9,000/month for security.)
-Since April, the well-dressed rapper has paid more than $330,000 to American Express and another $52,000 to his stylist Erin McSherry.
So…..in some wealthy circles, all of this translates into being broke. But it’s the “good” kind of broke….
In other news…
SO…..Zashia Santiago is NOW available for interviews. No shocker there. If you just asked, “Who is Zashia Santiago?” she is the new girlfriend of Safaree Samuels. Don’t be shady and ask “Who is Safaree Samuels?”
Back to Zashia…like MOST girlfriends of quasi-celebs, she claims that she does not want the spotlight and even said she didn’t know who Safaree was when she met him. BTW…..She is a makeup artist from Miami and she’s also the mother of a 10-year-old son named Isaiah.
We have a feeling that we will be seeing and hearing a lot from Zashia. She was “camera ready” for the interview, although she claims , “I don’t follow pop culture as much as people would believe. I listen to country.”
