Finally, rapper 50 Cent does not have a Bitcoin 

By the admission of Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a legal document, the American rapper did not earn millions of dollars thanks to the cryptocurrency. Far from there.

Remember, at the end of January, the world learned, via TMZ, that 50 Cent unknowingly had 700 Bitcoins he had obtained in payment for his album Animal Ambition. Estimated at $ 400,000 at the time, the value of its virtual wallet reached $ 8.5 million during the recent flight of Bitcoin.

In personal bankruptcy since July 2016, this small fortune was a breath of fresh air for the rapper from Queens. But here it is, its sudden wealth is actually only wind.

Look after your image

In a legal report obtained by The Blast website, Curtis Jackson admits that he "never owned, and does not have a Bitcoin account, or Bitcoins, and, to his knowledge, none of his companies had Bitcoin account from 2014 to the present day. "

A lie to put on the account of his public image.

"In general, as long as a report does not irreparably damage my image or my brand, I do not feel the need to publicly deny the report. This is especially true when I feel that the report in question is favorable to my image or brand, even if it is based on a misunderstanding of the facts or contains false information. "

Also in the document issued in the context of his bankruptcy case, 50 Cent explains that the media were mistaken in saying that Bitcoin had allowed him to rake in more than 8 million dollars.
