[Update 1: 50 Cent isn't broke at all! In fact he just posted these pictures of him playing with piles of money!]

Curtis Jackson, also known as the rapper 50 Cent, is trying yet again to sell his 1980s Connecticut mansion that he has listed off and on for about a decade. The only difference is this time he’s asking $8.5 million, which is less than half his original list price. Per Yahoo Real Estate:

“The poor guy’s been trying to sell it since at least 2007 (then asking $18.5 million). He bought it from Mike Tyson’s ex in 2003 for $4.1 million.”

In August, HousingWire covered the court documents from Jackson's bankruptcy file that show that he was spending $72,000 a month to maintain a home that has already housed other famous bankruptcies.

The megamansion boasts nine kitchens, 21 bedrooms and a casino, and was also formerly the home of Mike Tyson. The boxer also went bankrupt while living in the 52-room house.

Even the person who the mansion was originally created for in 1985, Benjamin Sisti, founder of Connecticut commercial real-estate brokerage firm Colonial Realty, later went to prison for bankruptcy fraud.
