50 Compares Debt Repayment To Slavery
50 Cent’s bankruptcy saga continues…this time with the really rich rapper claiming that his creditors are attempting to make him a modern-day slave with their plan of recouping the $30 million he still owes them. Via TMZ:
50 Cent is lashing out at some of the creditors in his bankruptcy case, telling the judge they are trying to set the clock more than 150 years and gunning to make him their slave.
Three of 50’s biggest creditors — Sleek Audio, SunTrust Bank and Lastonia Leviston — have come up with a payback plan and are asking the judge’s approval.
50 has just responded, claiming the plan violates the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which bans slavery and involuntary servitude. He says the plan would create “a near-indefinite period of involuntary indentured servitude” where he has to work solely for the creditors’ benefit.
He goes on to say, “The plan conditions [50’s] access to food and shelter on the whims of the trustee, who answers only to the [creditors].”
He claims it amounts to “compulsive labor” which he says is unconstitutional.
50 owes his creditors more than 30 mil.
Something tells us this argument may not hold up too well…
