Judge Ann Nevins ordered 50 Cent to court to explain several Instagram photos, including one of him next to piles of cash arranged to spell “broke.” The US trustee’s office is asking Nevins to appoint an examiner to review the rapper’s assets.

50 Cent says the stacks of cash aren’t real and he isn’t hiding any assets.
