No one wants to buy 50 Cent's US$6 million mansion that he's been forced to sell due to bankruptcy

The 50,000-square-foot mansion was originally listed at US$18.5 million in 2015

50 Cent recently settled his yearlong bankruptcy case by agreeing to pay US$23.4 million to his creditors over the course of five years. 

As a result, the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, is now looking to reorganise his finances and assets to chip away at this hefty debt, and it appears as if his decadent Connecticut mansion will be one of the first things to go. 

The 50,000-square-foot mansion was originally listed at US$18.5 million in 2015, but Jackson dropped the price significantly to US$8.5 million in the fall of last year, months after he declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 

Now the rapper has again lowered the price of his house to US$5.995 million.

The Farmington, Connecticut, home boasts "21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and hot tub, a substantial night club, an indoor court, multiple game rooms, a green screen room, a recording studio," among many other opulent features, as described in the listing from Douglas Elliman Real Estate. 

Let's take a look inside 50 Cent's incredible mansion.

The mansion opens into a shining foyer with dueling, wood-paneled staircases. 

One of its living rooms features gold curtains, gold-trimmed tables, and Persian carpets. 

In a carpeted meeting room, Jackson's record plaques, magazine covers, and posters line a red wall. 

One bathroom with red walls features a granite countertop, a chandelier, and a metallic dragon holding an elaborate mirror.

50's impressive kitchen is covered floor to wall with dark wood and green granite countertops and paneling.

One of 21 bedrooms in the mansion, this spacious room overlooks the rapper's tree-lined, 17-acre yard.

Here's another of its 25 bathrooms, featuring the requisite glass-door shower and walk-in closet.

This luxurious home theater with blue velvet walls comfortably seats eight people in leather reclining chairs.

And this pool with a stone archway and surrounding foliage has likely hosted more than a few extravagant pool parties.

50 Cent's mansion has also served as the backdrop to a number of his Instagram posts, such as this one, where he looks wistfully into the distance while standing in a gazebo.

When 50 challenged his former friend and welterweight-champion boxer Floyd Mayweather to "read a full page out of a Harry Potter book out loud without starting and stopping as part of a US$750,000 donation to an ALS charity in 2014, he did so on a terrace that overlooked his pool and expansive grounds.

As of now, 50's mansion is still on the market, but just like the ever dwindling roll of dollar bills that he apparently makes his guests use for toilet paper, nothing lasts forever.

 

Sure you can use my restroom it's cool#smsaudio

And once the place sells, we're willing to bet that 50 Cent will miss this incredible house.
