Bankrupt 50 Cent Builds Mansion In Africa

Video Preview

Rapper 50 Cent might have filed for bankruptcy in the US but it appears he is still able to afford a new home in Africa - reported the SkyNews.

The star posted a video on Instagram showing the house which has a swimming pool surrounded by palm trees.

Workmen can be seen sweeping up around the grounds and pool, which is an unappealing green colour.

In a message next to the video 50 Cent wrote: "My crib is almost finished in AFRICA. I'm gonna have the craziest House warming party ever. I'll explain later. I got a good life Man."

He did not specify which country in Africa the house is in.

The singer-turned-actor filed for bankruptcy in July after jurors in New York ordered him to pay $7m (£4.4m) to a woman who said he posted a narrated sex tape she made with a boyfriend online.

In a court filing he revealed that he has a monthly income of $185,000 (£118,000), which is mainly from royalties and interest on his investments.

However, he stated that he pays $72,000 (£46,000) a month to maintain his mansion in Hartford, Connecticut, including $5,000 (£3,200) a month on gardening.

It had been thought that 50 Cent was worth over $150m but he has admitted that this is not the case and that he often borrows fancy cars or expensive jewellery for public appearances.

He revealed he owes money to his stylist, fitness coach and barber.

The rapper's album Get Rich Or Die Tryin' helped make him one of the world's best-selling artists.

It is not known how much this new mansion cost.
