AceShowbiz - 50 Cent has encountered numerous legal issues over the years, which means he also spent some money on legal fees. When detailing in a new interview how much he's paid in legal fees since coming to fame in 2003, the "In Da Club" rapper was left speechless.
The 47-year-old, who rose to fame with "Get Rich Or Die Tryin' ", unveiled the money he had spent in legal fees when talking to Brian J. Roberts. "I spent over $23 million legal fees since I've had success in 2003. Over $23 million in legal fees," he revealed.
"So when you say you successful or that you rich in a different way, that money was just written off as expenses of business," Fiddy continued. He went on adding, "You in it and I'm going, 'What?' When I'm looking at it myself, 'That's how much you really spent on that?' I was like, 'Wow!' "
Fiddy, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, further shared, "The only thing someone in America can do is sue someone." He elaborated more, "They're gonna sue and there always gonna be pro-bono or say, 'We'll defend you in exchange for 30 percent of what we receive off of this, because we do see a case.' "
Fif's latest courtroom activity is a case over penis enhancement claims that's set to go to trial in July 2023. Of the case, he commented via Instagram, "yeah my d**k is a BIG DEAL set for trial in july no enhancement necessary,these fools put them selves out of business. SMH."
In September, Fiddy denied the wild claims that he underwent surgery to improve his manhood. The "Power" co-creator/star then filed a lawsuit, in which he accused a woman named Angela Kogan and her companies Perfection Plastic Surgery and MedSpa of using his photo to promote her businesses.
In the lawsuit, Fif claimed he took a picture with the plastic surgeon back in February 2020 because he thought she was a fan. The TV producer also stated he believes Angela and her companies have since used the image to pimp their products. They allegedly started off by using the photo on social media to promote the plastic surgery clinics.
His legal trouble aside, Fiddy, who teamed up with Houston Rockets, brought holiday cheer to Houston local residents with a Thanksgiving Turkey giveaway earlier this week. The turkey drive took place on Tuesday, November 22 right outside the Toyota Center, the home of the Rockets.
Guests were treated to one Thanksgiving meal per vehicle, as well as turkeys that were given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Thanksgiving meal included food items donated by 50 Cent's G-Unity Foundation, Kroger and Spec's, along with a ticket voucher to an upcoming Rockets home game. Supplies were limited to the first 1,000 vehicles, meaning only families in need were encouraged to pull up to the event.
"I just want them to have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy themselves, you know what I'm saying?" Fif told KPRC at the event. "I'm actually coming in here fashionably. My kids been here working and putting it together, so I gotta catch up and put in more work so they don't gotta look at me like I got them out here first."
