Rapper 50 Cent has announced that he will no longer be in charge of his Instagram account following accusations over fake dollars post.
The G-Unit rapper who is currently embroiled in court over his bankruptcy declaration made this known in a series of posts earlier today.
It is believed that the U.S. court judge in charge of his case thinks he is dishonest with his claim of being bankrupt when his IG page is filled with photos of himself surrounded by cash.
However, 50’s lawyer claimed that the cash displayed were simply Prop Money – fake cash used mostly in music videos and films, that he was simply showing off as part of social media marketing.
This prompted the U.S. Secret Service to contact the rapper questioning if the prop money was counterfeit, and this must have totally got 50 upset as he released several photos, including the big announcement that he will no longer be in charge of his Instagram account.
According to Billboard reports, there are rules about showing off fake money to avoid counterfeit issues and 50 could be in trouble with the U.S. Secret Service if he did not follow the rules. The law does not specify if it is acceptable to share fake money on social media, but it states clearly that the size of the money and the colour must be different from real cash.
