50 Cent Sells Mansion, Will Become Assisted Living Facility

In the wake of bankruptcy claims, and then pretty clear proof that he’s not actually bankrupt, rapper 50 Cent has sold his Connecticut mansion for a reported USD$8 million.

The 50,000 square foot mansion includes 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an infinity pool basketball courts, a gym, a helipad, casino and even a nightclub with stripper poles.

Yet the buyer has revealed plans to renovate the property into an assisted living community for the elderly.

The rapper had first put the house on the market way back in 2007, with a hefty asking price of USD$18.5 million. In 2011, it was lowered to, uh, $9,999,999, before lowering it once more to $8.5 million late last year.

50 Cent had first purchased the property from controversial boxer Mike Tyson’s ex-wife for $4.1 million in 2003, during the peak of his career, having enjoyed massive success with his classic tracks like P.I.M.P and In Da Club. According to HipHopDX, spent between $6-10 million on renovations.

After the rapper, aka Curtis Jackson III filed for bankruptcy last year, some of his incredulous expenses included a whopping $72,000 spent each month on maintaining the property – including $5000 on gardening alone.
