50 Cent lost a lawsuit against Sleek Audio back in April, and was ordered to pony up $17.2 million.
According to TMZ.com, the hip-hop mogul has yet to pay, so his bank account has been frozen. While a source within Fif’s camp confirms that his personal bank account has been locked, he still has access to his business accounts.
Sleek Audio sued 50 Cent in 2013, claiming that he stole their design to start another company after their planned partnership fell apart. A judge ruled in their favor … and 50 was ordered to pay… but apparently hasn’t yet, or hasn’t paid the amount in full.
Forbes estimates 50’s net worth to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $140 million, so a mere $17 million shouldn’t hurt him much.
