The rapper 50 Cent’s recent bankruptcy filing has drawn attention to a court hearing last month where a lawyer for a woman who sued him grilled about his notoriously flashy lifestyle.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy after he lost a lawsuit brought by a woman named Lastonia Leviston whose sex tape he published on the internet.

The rapper was ordered to pay $US5 million, and an attorney for Leviston has suggested he only filed for bankruptcy to avoid paying up in the lawsuit. During a hearing in Manhattan earlier this month, attorney Philip Freidin pressed 50 Cent repeatedly about his assets, earning opportunities, and showy lifestyle.

50 Cent admitted that he had a home with the following amenities:

  • His own personal nightclub (in the house)
  • 21 bedrooms
  • 24 bathrooms
  • Movie theatre
  • Basketball court
  • Swimming pool
  • Grotto (It’s not clear what “grotto” means in this instance, but it’s generally a word used to refer to a cave.)
  • 17 acres of land
