ABC/Fred LeeAfter filing for bankruptcy, 50 Cent couldn’t care less about what people have to say about his financial hardship.
During an in-depth interview with Larry King, the mogul candidly discusses his recent legal troubles and responds to the media scrutiny. “I’ve seen so many things said about me on social networking at points and when you don’t anticipate it, it lands a little harder on you…I can see what’s going to come from people,” he says, adding, “It’s strategic. It’s a move that’s necessary for me to make at this point.”
The rapper, who has been shot nine times, adds that he’s overcome greater adversity. “It makes me feel like there’s nothing that can be in front of me that can be more difficult than what I’ve already experienced. I’ve been through the tougher parts of my life already,” he says.
As previously reported, the rapper recently explained that his bankruptcy filing is a business move following a jury verdict earlier this month ordering him to pay at least $5 million in damages to Lastonia Leviston, for posting a sex tape of her online in 2009.
