On the Million Dollar Listing New York episode “50 Cent & 6 Percent,” celebrity real estate agent Fredrik Eklund drives to Farmington, Connecticut to meet Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson at his country estate. He bought the 50,000 sq. ft. home on 17 acres of land in 2003. It was previously owned by boxer Mike Tyson who bought it in 1996 for $2.8 million. In 1997, Tyson sought $44 million for the home, which was later awarded to Tyson’s ex-wife, Monica Turner, in 2003. Later that year, in 2003, 50 Cent purchased the house from Turner for $4.1 million. It is currently on the market for $4,995,000. (Mike Tyson remarried and moved to Ohio, btw.)

When Fredrik arrives he asks 50 Cent if he uses all of the rooms — there are 52 rooms; 6 of them are kitchens. 50 Cent admits that he doesn’t and then gives Fredrik a tour. While walking around the palace, Fredrik suggests that he take on the nickname “Six Percent,” as in six percent commission. (Six percent of $5 million is $300,000, btw.) Million Dollar Listing New York airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
