50 Cent Cuts Selling Price In Half For Connecticut Mansion

- By Bossip Staff

Its hard out here for a P.I.M.P.

Trouble selling his mansion, 50 cent has decided to cut the price in nearly half.

Just like the majority of people, the declining housing market even has 50 cent struggling to sell his 50,000 square foot, 52 room mansion equiped with an elevator, night club and recording studio.

After originally asking $18.5 million, Curtis is now selling the Farmington Estate, or the “Playboy Mansion of the East” as he calls it, for under $10 million.

50 bought the house in 2003 off of Mike Tyson’s ex-wife Monica Turner for $4.1 million, who originally asked $25 million. Curtis has reportedly put in improvements and additions costing as much as $6 million.

Fawk it. At this point just take your “L” and move on, the real estate game is twisted right now and selling that big a$$ house is no easy task. Sorry

  • DontBeScurred

    Niggganomics on display. Like anyone with real wealth is going to want to move into his old house. There’s probably bags of weed hidden in the walls.

  • http://www.bossip.com Summer

    That’s because nobody wants to live in a house labeled as “50 cent’s old house…and before that it was Mike Tyson’s old house” lol
    They should turn it into a golf resort and call it a day.

  • caper

    [READ AND LEARN] I tried to tell u non-educated rich ballers and losers who plunk down all that loot for property that the realtor WHO’S COMMISSIONS took yo azz’s for a ride. one mo time real-estate has tanked and people from germany and foreign places are coming here snapp’n up and getting this prime real estate for pennies on the dollar. for their winter vacations prices will not be this low again for 40 yrs. or until the republicans and wall street decide to pull this loot, raid, and caper like they done in the 80’s. u short-time rich negros are dropp’n manmouth stacks for land that ain’t worth crap…….. YOU BIG DUMMIES…… economics DAMN. i guess its yo money bur u are going to end up like 50 pennies….. taking a beat’n.

    There’s gonna be another PRICE CHOP to about 6million…and a lot of praying.

  • mosiane

    Maybe if he got off of twitter and actually made some money…

  • ayo

    who the hell wanna get stock maintaining a house like that forever.

    Even the ones that appear to be very smart can make a silly mistake. They always say u can’t predict the future, this is absolutely true.

    the way america spends has been changed forever due to the last three years market event. I think he might even have a hard time sellling this house for 5 million just because whoever buys this house will have to think about maintanance and no one needs this kingd of everyday stress

  • Ms Parker

    50 cent is far from broke….u haters need to go hide under a rock….lol
