As 50 Cent continues to go through the proceedings of filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy, his legal team recently turned over 56 pages of financial information that paint a clearer picture of 50's situation. The documents include financial details for his total amount of assets, debts, complete monthly expenses, his mansion, child support, and more.
In total, his current debts are standing at over $32 million, while his assets sit at just over $24 million. In a previous court appearance, 50 claimed that his flashy lifestyle was all fake, though the newly filed court documents shows that he owns over $500,000 in cars, and spends $108,000 a month in expenses. 50 also has to deal with his outstanding child support debt, which currently sits at $855,091 and is something that doesn't go away when you file for chapter 11 bankruptcy. As far as his business ventures go, 50's most valuable is in G-Unit Records, which is currently worth $2.7 million.
Somehow, the L's continue to pile up for Meek Mill, and the latest has nothing to do with his ongoing beef with Drake. According to TMZ, the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, and more were just added to an ongoing lawsuit filed against Meek for an unauthorized house party he had earlier this year. Meek and company reportedly trashed a rental house during Grammys weekend, even though the owner of the house warned him not to host any parties—actually, he wasn't allowed to have more than six people at the residence.
As of now, Meek has refused to negotiate with the owner of the house on the amount of payment for the damages, and thus they have added the A-list celebrity guest list from the party to the lawsuit. If Meek refuses to settle, the lawyer for the homeowner reportedly plans to depose each celebrity that was in attendance and find out what happened to the house. No word on if Meek plans to settle the case, but we will continue to update with more details as they're made available.

The feud between rappers Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg has ended with an apology from Snoop and an acceptance from Iggy, but not before escalating to oh-no-he-didn't heights.
The social-media throwdown began last week when makeup-free paparazzi pics of the "Fancy" emcee surfaced online and Snoop promptly compared her fair skin and blond hair to that of an albino woman with cornrows.
Snoop, 42, real name Calvin Broadus, continued picking on her with a slew of escalating mean-spirited memes and posts making less-than-flattering comparisons.
Iggy, 24, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, responded to the bullying with since-deleted tweets that were captured by E! News.
"@snoopdogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together?" she wrote. "My bodyguard stopped the fire truck that saved your friends life in canada when he almost burnt down the hotel ... And everytime I've spoken to you, you've always been nice as hell, I'm disappointed you'd be such an ass for no reason."

G-Unit is out on the road promotion their new EP The Beauty Of Independence. Stopping by Connecticut's Hot 9.31, Buck, Banks, Yayo and Kidd Kidd, addressed why their new projects don't have guest features.
“I know a lot of [the love] is not genuine... I think a lot of it really is genuine when it comes from the fans,” Young Buck said. “From the artists, nah, I don’t know. It’s like I didn’t see none of you dudes rooting to try to get G-Unit back together when we were not together.”
Buck generally feels that other artists lack the authenticity to get on a Unit record, refusing to name names, but expressing a general hesitation.
With The Beauty Of Independence in stores now, 50 and company have announced a second EP due to release this October with six brand new records. When asked why the group is putting out EP's in preference to a full-length, Lloyd Banks had this to say:
"You might announce your album in January and it might not drop 'til November... What this is doing is—We don’t like to sit on music and all the music we made, the 40 records, we done that in three weeks. So, it’s not no time to fall in love with it. But we want something out there for the people right now.”
Additional topics include Buck connecting with Remy Ma post-prison, million dollar record deals, and more.
In other G-Unit news, the group was recently announced to appear on the cover of XXL's final physical issue.
Chris Brown pleaded guilty on Tuesday to hitting a man outside a Washington hotel, an assault that occurred while the singer was on probation for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to time served. He spent two days in a Washington jail in this case.
The Grammy-winning singer was arrested in October. The victim told police Brown hit him after he tried to get in a picture the singer was taking with two women.
Brown had previously pleaded not guilty in the case. His trial had been set for April, but it was delayed.
According to a report by Loop News, Vybz Kartel could appeal his murder conviction as early as the first quarter of 2015. The incarcerated entertainer is reportedly looking forward to the appeal as well. The entertainer and his co-accused had filed preliminary grounds for appeal when they filed their notice of appeal in April, shortly after their conviction and sentence. Among the grounds are unfair trial, miscarriage of justice and lack of evidence.
Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahria Jones and Andre St John were sentenced to life imprisonment for the August 16, 2011 murder of friend Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. Williams was beaten to death at a house owned by Palmer, in Havendale, St Andrew, over the disappearance of two illegal gangs. His body has not been found. In voice notes played for the jurors in the 65-day long trial in the Home Circuit Court, Kartel said that Williams’ body was chopped up “fine-fine like mincemeat”. Kartel is to serve 35 years in prison before he becomes eligible for parole. Campbell and Jones are to serve 25 years before becoming eligible for parole, while St John is to become eligible for parole after serving 30 years of his sentence. The men were convicted on March 13. A fourth accused, Shane Williams, was found not guilty by the 11-member jury.
