50 cents don’t gamble when it comes to getting their money on time.
As usual, the mogul took to his Instagram to share his thoughts on his latest legal battle involving a former Sire Spirits employee. He posted a screenshot of a HipHopDX headline titled “50 Cent set to grab property from ex-employee over $6 million.”
“Listen, I need it by Monday,” 50 wrote in a caption.
According to court records obtained by the New York TimesMitchell Green is guilty of embezzling more than $2 million from Le Chemin du Roi champagne as the company’s director of brand management.
In 2019, the company was created by 50 Cent’s Sire Spirits brand. Green allegedly marked up the wholesalers, saying they had to pay agency fees, and pocketed the money he earned. The court ordered Green to pay the company more than $6 million, including prejudgment interest, attorneys’ fees, arbitrator compensation, and more.
Green asked to appeal the lawsuit, which plunged him into a deeper hole. The court denied his claim and added nearly $90,000 to his outstanding debt for attorney fees.
The filings indicate that if Green refuses to pay, the Power producer can seize his personal property and other assets until they are repaid. Additionally, 50 Cent is also suing Michael Caruso and his wife for their involvement in the champagne scheme. The two ordered to help pay the balance with Green.
This isn’t the first time people have owed the “Many Men” rapper money after legal proceedings. In 2018, Terry Mary for follow-up the MC for revenge porn, and ultimately ended up losing the case, owing him up to $40,000 in legal fees. Over the years, 50 Cent has taunted the singer using memes and Instagram posts, including with his infamous “I want money by Monday” double.
