50 Cent Files A $75 Million Lawsuit Against Former Lawyers Claiming They’re The Reason For His Bankruptcy


Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is more than a comedian and basher of Empire; he’s also a business man. However, like many business men before him (and after), there are some mistakes and misguided advice that taken. While many were under the impression that 50 filed for bankruptcy because he lost a suit to Rick Ross’ baby’s mother, turns out that is not the case. In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday – in the Connecticut bankruptcy court – by 50 against his former attorneys’ law firm, Garvey Schubert Barer, the Effen Vodka mogul claims that the firm misrepresented him in a business deal with Sleek Audio. He’s asking his old attorneys for $75 million.

Dame Dash and Curren$y Settle Their $3 Million Lawsuit

Dame Dash x Curren$y

Back in 2010, Dame Dash and Curren$y partnered up in a business deal to release a series of new Spitta albums under Dame’s imprint. Though they did release a few projects, the deal went sour after a while, and Spitta eventually parted ways with Dash to sign with Warner Music.

However, according to Spitta, Dame continued to release his music without his permission, so he went on to file an injunction against him in 2011, seeking $1.5 million in damages. Dash fired back saying he had permission to release them, and the case has dragged on since then with Dash having lawyer issues. Eventually, the suit ballooned up to $2.9 million in damages plus $95k in attorney fees, as Spitta accused Dash of violating the court order by refusing to hire new lawyers to represent him, thus making the whole legal battle drag out way more than it needed to.
