50 Cent filing for bankuptcy has to make Floyd Mayweather laugh and gloat. Months ago, before Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather got even richer by beating up Manny Pacquiao in the so-called “fight of the century,” Mayweather’s former business partner 50 Cent was publicly telling Mayweather to let him handle the business end of the Mayweather empire. 50 Cent — otherwise known as Curtis Jackson — expressed his concern that Mayweather was being cheated by his representatives. 50 Cent said only he could properly look after his pal Floyd’s loot and operations, especially since 50 Cent knew that Mayweather couldn’t even read. Or so he implied.
Maybe 50 Cent — who got rich instead of dying trying, as he promised — should have been looking after his own purse strings. A mere $5 million payment as retribution for posting a sex tape online knocked 50 Cent off his throne — it forced the actor, rapper, producer and businessman to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Mayweather could find $5 million in the pocket of a pair of pants he forgot he owned. And Mayweather seems pretty savvy about money, too.
