Is 50 Cent Peddling A Fake Lavish Lifestyle?

50 cent

Last week, 50 Cent shocked the world when he filed for bankruptcy after he was ordered to pay $5 million to the mother of Rick Ross’ child for leaking her sex tape in retaliation for their ongoing feud. He’s been back in court this week to determine how much of that he’ll actually have to pay, and while he’s continued to flaunt a rather lavish lifestyle on social media, 50 told a judge that it’s all for show and he doesn’t actually live like that.

From Page Six:

The rapper, ordered to testify about his finances in Manhattan Supreme court Tuesday morning, said that his over-the-top displays of wealth — the bling, the Lamborghinis, Bentleys and Rolls Royces — are all smoke and mirrors.

“Those cars were rented,” admitted the 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson.

“It’s like music videos, they say action and you see all these fancy cars but everything goes back to the dealership,” he added.

The rings, the chains?

“I borrowed from the jeweler,” he admitted.

In reality, he owns just three gold chains, which he has a jeweler refashion into a new piece every now and then, he said.

And forget about a diamond-studded Rolex–he said he wears a plastic Casio G-Shock instead.

Stoppppp. Is he for real? He and his team claim that he’s only worth $4 million, which… LOL, no. Forbes actually estimated his worth somewhere around $155 million, and while I’m sure most of that isn’t liquid, trying to say you wear a plastic Casio watch has me in tears (of laughter).

Jackson had to admit he still commands top dollar for appearances, taking $100,000 for a day of filming “Spy” and $200,000 for a concert appearance last week in London.

He also confirmed that his 17-acre Connecticut estate has a basketball court and a nightclub — though he couldn’t remember the zip code for his 21-bedroom pad.

In court, Jackson tried to sweeten the jury of four women and two men by flashing big smiles.

“You gotta smile when you’re in a public situation. If you’re crying they’re just having more fun with you,” he said.

I’ve always loved 50 and I still do, he cracks me up. But this is just ridiculous. Apparently his lawyer told the court that his bank account is ever-shrinking because he still owes $1800 to his grandfather for an unpaid debt, among other outgoing costs. HAHAHA. Oh, Curtis.

Miranda Lambert Denies Cheating, Accuses Blake Instead

blake shelton miranda lambert

Oh God, will this ever end? When Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their divorce, no one was really all that shocked. No one even cared when they heard it was over alleged infidelity, because of course it was. Blake accused Miranda of having an affair, which she vehemently denied. Instead, she says he’s the one who cheated, and frankly, it’s looking like that just might be the case, given that his mistress Cady Groves has been all kinds of sloppy on Twitter the past couple of days.

From TMZ:

It’s a classic case of he said/she said … but sources close to Lambert say Shelton’s the one who strayed … with a famous country singer no less.

The sources claim Blake’s camp was unscrupulous, and threw mud with the help of a powerful PR firm that attacked Miranda before the ink was dry on the divorce docs.

We’re told she’s incensed Blake accused her of cheating with a country singer. She says it never happened, and so does the singer.

Here’s the tweets from that “famous country singer” having no social media chill whatsoever and embarrassing pretty much everyone involved in this situation:

Oh, girl, no. I mean, why is she so sprung… ON BLAKE SHELTON, of all people? This whole thing is just sad, on so many levels.

Kourtney Kardashian Wants Full Custody Of Her 3 Kids With Scott Disick

kourtney kardashian kids

Kourtney Kardashian has, for most intents and purposes, been a single parent all along. Sure, Scott Disick donated his sperm, but he’s been too busy sharing it with other women and snorting lines of coke off their asses to worry about raising his kid. Now that the relationship is finally over, Kourtney has been meeting with lawyers to protect her assets – and to file for full custody of Mason, Penelope and Reign.

Kourtney Kardashian has met with top Hollywood divorce attorney, “disso queen” Laura Wasser, following her high-profile split from Scott Disick — and it’s because she’s seeking sole custody of their kids, a source confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

While Kardashian and Disick were not married, the couple of nine years shares three young children, Mason, 5, Penelope, 3, and Reign, 7 months. A source tells Us in the new issue that Kourtney, 36, is determined to protect her kids from Disick’s downward spiral, fueled by booze, drugs, and other vices.

On Monday, July 20, Kardashian paid yet another visit to the top Hollywood attorney’s office building in L.A.’s Century City nabe. “She met with Laura Wasser again,” a Kardashian pal tells Us. “And is going to seek sole custody of the kids.”

She and Disick currently do not have a formal custody arrangement, but sources tell Us a battle over the kids would be surprising. “Scott’s friends don’t think he’ll challenge Kourtney,” one insider tells Us, while another adds that the self-proclaimed Lord “doesn’t act like a dad at all when he’s partying.”

Wasser seems to be the Kardashian family lawyer – she’s worked with Kim and Khloe before – so that makes sense. Also, unless Scott’s being a total dickhead (which is likely), I doubt he’ll fight her much. He doesn’t want kids – they’d just interfere with all his partying. If he doesn’t get his act together soon, he’ll likely end up in a ditch before they get to high school, but I don’t think he really cares.

Bill Cosby Wants His Sexual Assault Settlement Money Back

bill cosby

Aw, poor Bill Cosby. He thought throwing money at one of his sexual assault victims would make the whole thing go away, never to be heard of again. Only then, the truth about his disgusting, predatory ways found its way out, and he’s not happy about it. How dare people know he has drugged literally dozens upon dozens of women (that we know about) to coerce them into having sex with him! I mean, can’t a man have a private life?! Anyway, he wants his money back from Andrea Constand, the woman who was the subject of that awful 2005 deposition. Pay up, Andrea!

From TMZ:

Cosby just filed legal docs, firing back at Constand who now says she wants her entire court file released to the public. Until recently, her sexual assault case file and settlement with Cosby was confidential, but the judge has released selected portions.

But now Constand says she wants Cosby’s entire deposition made public. Someone leaked it to the New York Times, but she now wants it available to everyone.

In Cosby’s new legal docs, he says it’s grossly unfair for her to break their confidentiality deal and at the same time keep the money he gave her to stay quiet.

Cosby’s lawyer makes it clear … if she keeps on trying to make the confidential docs public, she should be required to return some or all of the money Cosby gave her.

Newsflash, dipshit – Andrea didn’t make the document public, the judge in the case did. Also, how on earth could such a disgusting crime EVER be sealed, anyway? Like, WHO AGREED TO THAT? Keep your money, Andrea, and keep talkin’. I know the “law” might say that’s illegal, but the law also says rape is illegal and yet allows this disgusting excuse for a man walk free, so… I think we’re okay, here.

Katy Perry Weighs In On Taylor Swift’s Cluelessness

katy perry nicki minaj taylor swift

Well, I suppose it was only a matter of time. After Nicki Minaj‘s frustration with the MTV VMAs (and the music industry at large) prompted Taylor Swift to open her mouth and promptly stick her foot in it while showing the world what an arrogant, self-absorbed asshole she is, celebrities started weighing in. However, one voice rose above the rest and oh, it was glorious (even if it was vaguely nonsensical). Katy Perry, do your thing.


If you’re having trouble parsing what she’s going for here, since it wasn’t stated all that eloquently, Katy’s basically saying it’s fucking hilarious that someone who can make a video like “Bad Blood” – which is basically like the music video version of Mean Girls with Katy as the target of Taylor and her girl gang’s wrath – and then try to peddle a bullshit brand of feminism that has no bearing on the real world and is totally fake, you need to step off.

Then again, Katy’s been trying to put us on for a while now, and we just weren’t listening:

regina george

I know the “feud” between Katy and Taylor is petty, but if you think about it, it’s kinda been Taylor that’s drama queen, here. She’s the one who’s spoken most directly about it in interviews/tried to create drama. I mean, SHE MADE A SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO ABOUT THE FEUD. I’m so over it. Taylor doesn’t care about propping up women, she cares about propping up herself and her own career. Bye, girl. Katy HAD to speak up. It’s too delicious.

Now all we need is for Rihanna to join the game and drag her, but I feel like it’s just too much to hope for.

Bindi Irwin Has A Boyfriend Now!

bindi irwin

The last we heard from Bindi Irwin, she was telling girls to cover up and stop dressing like sluts and start seeing life like she does: through rose-coloured, animal-loving glasses. It seems she’s done a lot of growing up in this past year, because she’s started dating and has even met that special someone!

“There is someone special in my life right now, and I’m really happy with that,” Bindi told ET. “Life is wonderful at the moment.” Bindi didn’t reveal her boyfriend’s name, but she has been seen hanging out with professional wakeboarder Chandler Powell.

Aw, that’s kinda cute, actually. Young love! What a wonder.  Bindi also shared that she’s not on Facebook because it bugs her out, so to speak.

“I have never joined the Facebook world, because to be truthful social media scares me to death,” Bindi said. “It is kind of crazy how huge that world is, so I have never joined Facebook, but I do have Instagram and Twitter.”

I think her dad would definitely be proud of her – she seems like she’s got a good head on her shoulders, generally speaking, and I’m sure she’ll be just fine. Also, Facebook is THE WORST, so I’m with her on that. Good choice, Bindi. Just stay off Snapchat.

Melanie Griffith & Antonio Banderas Are Officially Divorced

melanie griffith antonio banderas

I told you there was a lot of divorce news today! Back in June 2014, Melanie Griffith filed for divorce from Antonio Banderas after an impressive 18 year run, but it seemed their split was at a stand-still since then. Until now, that is. TMZ reports that the split is now a done deal and their marriage is officially over.

Court records show both signed the necessary legal docs to become officially single after 18 years of marriage.

Melanie was asking for full custody of their daughter, Stella, and also wanted spousal support. The custody issue resolved itself when Stella turned 18 last September.

A judge still needs to sign the docs to make everything official and that should happen in a matter of days.

It’s her 4th divorce and his 2nd.

Damn, her 4th? That’s intense. You’d think after the second or third, you’d be like, man, this whole marriage thing isn’t for me… I think I’ll chill on the nuptials for a while.

Ah, whatever. Shine on, you crazy diamond!
