Curtis Jackson, aka rapper 50 Cent lived up to his name earlier this week when he filed for bankruptcy in Hartford, Connecticut.

It was clear from the time that the story broke that 50 Cent was using the move to protect his assets in the aftermath of losing a lawsuit over a sex tape, and now a federal judge has ruled that Jackson can't use the bankruptcy to skirt any punitive damages that are awarded in the same case.

The drama is the result of a lawsuit brought by Lastonia Leviston, who sued Jackson for posting a sex tape of her on the Internet without her permission.

50 Cent's Two Year Old Son Is Making How Much?

3/13/2015 9:12am EDT
50 Cent's Two Year Old Son Just Landed A $700,000 Modeling Contr
Some parents give their kids allowances, to teach them about the value of money. Others help them find a part-time job.

50 Cent, on the other hand, just landed his son Sire- his two-year-old son Sire- a major modeling contract. And we mean "major" as in, "this two-year-old boy just raked in $700,000 for a modeling gig."

$700,000. Kid's rich. 50 Cent's richer, of course (with a net worth of around $140 million), but pulling six figure paychecks is still slightly above average for a two-year-old.

The contract's for Kidz Safe, an audio company that makes kid-friendly headphones, as 50 Cent ...

25 Celebrity Republicans - Some May Shock You
Let's face it - Hollywood attracts a lot of Democrats. Many stars champion gay rights, environmental causes and other issues that are important for that political party.

But there are plenty of Republicans in Tinseltown. Some are less vocal about their political views, while others are conservative and proud.

Former Disney star Hilary Duff performed at George W. Bush's 2005 inauguration and is a registered Republican. The singer/actress is dropping a new pop album in October and recently told the press she's open to a "Lizzie McGuire" reunion.

50 Cent's recent ceremonial first pitch at a Mets games has already been archived as one of the worst first pitches by a celebrity. However, the rapper has a perfectly good reason explaining why the throw was so horrible.

Review: 50 Cent, 'Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire' Proves To Be A Lukewarm LP At Best

Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win
“Got them straps and long clips filled up with lead / so when we count on the paper it better be correct”. Yep, this lyric (from “Animal Ambition”) basically epitomizes the attitude that 50 Cent rolls with on his long-awaited comeback album, Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win. “Untamed” is a great way to describe 50 Cent’s hunger, seeming to cling upon confidence and cockiness, along with a loaded bank account. There is toughness about Animal Ambition that hearkens back to the MC’s best albums (Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and The Massacre), yet there seems to be a disconnection between th...

The 10 Most Epic Lip Sync Fails
Why is it that we just love when a celeb makes a complete and utter fool of themselves, particularly on live television? Lip synching is a tender topic among musicians. Many admit to hating it, but give up when it comes down to a perfect performance or a mediocre one. Many rely on it to sound exactly like their prerecorded track. Still, some are so void of any real talent that they use it as a crutch to get through the performance. Do you recall any of these epic lip sync fails?

Celebrities don’t exist without a reputation. It’s their bread and butter.
