At the onset last year, 50 Cent announced that he was no longer facing bankruptcy after paying f $22 million to debtors; apparently, 8.7 million came out his own pocket, while the remainder was one in a legal malpractice settlement. Since then, things have been going smoothly for Fif, and reports that the Get Rich Or Die Tryin rapper sold his stake in Effen Vodka for a speculated sixty million dollars didn’t hurt.

Now, Bossip reports that the company in question, GSO Business Management LLC, is retaliating with claims that they were never irresponsible with 50’s money. In fact, the report indicates that GSO is shifting the blame to another company called Boulevard. It should be noted that GSO was employed by 50 Cent between 2012 and 2015, which happens to be the period in which 50 filed for bankruptcy. While there has yet to be any concrete ruling by the judge, GSO is staunch in their belief that Boulevard are ultimately at fault here; for some context, Boulevard swept in to handle finances once 50 fired GSO.
