HARTFORD, Conn. — Rapper 50 Cent has been ordered to appear in bankruptcy court in Connecticut to explain photos showing him with wads of cash.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Judge Ann Nevins told the rapper’s lawyer Thursday that several photos posted on Instagram made her concerned about allegations 50 Cent wasn’t being truthful about his finances. A hearing date hasn’t been set.

50 Cent’s lawyer told the judge his client has reported all income.

The social media photos mentioned in court documents include one showing 50 Cent lying in bed with bundles of $100 bills.

The rapper was born Curtis Jackson III. He filed for bankruptcy last year after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who said he posted her sex tape online.
