MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind of an interesting rumor. MediaTakeOut.com just caught wind that rapper 50 Cent may have invested in a fund that invested heavily with Bernie Madoff.
According to a MediaTakeOut.com snitch claiming to be in the know, 50 put a hefty 7 figure amount in a hedge fund. And the fund, in turn invested some of the money it raised into one of Madoff's funds.
But things could have been worse for the popular rapper. The snitch explained to MediaTakeOut.com, "Luckily [the fund] disn't invest all its money with Madoff, or 50 would be in even worse shape."
Always exaggarating ***. 50 said he lost some money, so what?
thats wat he get he shoulda known wit somebody with the last name madoff that man made off wit his money too
Say it ain't so 50. I hope he didn't invest all of his money with that man like everyone else did
We'll know soon if he lost all his money because if he did he's gonna put a cap in Madoff's white ***.
Yeah...a RUMOR...now watch people come in here typing paragraphs like this sh!t was confirmed or something lol
He's a great business man with a diverse portfolio so he'll make it back up in a few months.
fu*k 50 !
THEY SHOULDA NEVA GAVE U *** MONEY!!!
50 already spoke about this, said he lost a lot in investments.
GO GET EM!!!
***!!! Man, Madoff needs to be locked under the jail. And why is he not locked up now?
I seriously doubt it because Bernie Madoff only dealt with the well-well to do,ultra wealthy high siddity,old money Families,and the jewish community and he only ran in those esoteric circles.'He wouldn't be caught in the same sentence with the likes of someone like Fif if you get my drift...Ya feel me?" True Talk.
I don't figure 50 to be a fool when dealing with matters of the financial, he was wise to learn from others mistakes.
Who is Bernie Madoff??
Are you saying that 50 lost money investing with this guy??
Aren't we all loosing out on investments right now?? I know I am!!
IDK....... I don't get this story!!
Oh I'm sorry!! That's the guy from NY that stole all of those peoples investment money!! I see now, Okay momentary brain freeze!!
He's a smart businessman so he's not stressing!
WHATEVER MTO *** YA BLOODCLOT MOUTH TIL U GET SOME REAL PROOF...
Ahh poor 50 come i'll make it all better lolz
whree the proof in this story??
***. ***, ***!!!
@ Stefanie...oh ok
I'm sure he's not the only celebrity to lose money if he did. A lot of them talk about investments. I saw on the news a few weeks agos that Jayz is having a hard time with his hotel deal.
If 50 said that, then I respect him for being honest about it. A lot of people wouldnt come out and admit that to the public. Especially these gold tooth wearing rappers that want the public to believe they are ballin 24/7 like their life is beautiful and sh@t
50 Cent is a very Smart Man. Keep it moving,MAn! God Bless Him!
Can I get *** for $2000 Alex??
We all no theat when MTO "catches wind" of something then the story fake.
YEAH 50 LOST SOME MONEY AND *** BUT THIS STORY JUST SOUNDS CRAZY LOL...
who cares 50 straight for life
not being racist, but you got to be very careful with some of these white guys you invest your money with. they have a track record of scamming and committing white collar crimes. I'm not saying that all of them do it, there may be some black who are scammers but we only here about the white ones. 50 needs to slow down a little with all of this investing. being a little too greedy may be his down fall. sometimes something that sounds great, isn't.
How some of ya'll going to say the man was crazy for investing with a well known investor. No one, not even the FEDS saw this coming from BERNIE MADOFF so I can't blame 50!
So if you calling the man crazy for trying to make more money, then ya'll the ones crazy. Lets not forget that record sells is not what got 50 wealthy, it was his smart investments.
Just so happen that this investor beat everybody out of 50+billon........
Not true mto. And if he did loose money its obviously not bothering him, he is a gfood bz man
MADOFF WORKED HIS MAGIC ALL THRU THE BUSINESS. 50 IS ONLY BUT ONE OF MANY MANY!!!!
Who is Madoff? Is that a stupid question? If it is I really don't know who that is any way...
I AGREE. I WAS ASTOUNDED TO SEE HOW MANY SEEMINGLY INTELLIGENT VICTIMS TRUSTED THIS FOOL WITH "ALL" THEIR MONEY. I'M LIKE WTF? WHAT IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG?
BOTTOM LINE, YOU SHOULD NEVER, EVER, EVER TRUST ANY PERSON, INSTITUTION, FIRM OR BUSINESS WITH "ALL" YOUR EGGS! YOU SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN B, AND DIVERSIFY YOUR WEALTH WITH OTHER VENUES.
With any investments you take a chance. If this is true or not. We all or some talk about these rappers with these hefty chains and always holler they need to invest that money when most of US don't even know how to do it just say it like it's easy . so he tried investing and even with that it's risky.. You Win Some you Lose some. Just Keep Pushing
Please! Do I care that a millionaire lost a few bucks when half the nation is struggling to keep their homes and food on the table? NOPE!
50 is a business man!!!
IF HE INVESTED ALL HIS MONEY HE PROBABLY IS 50 CENT, WORTH THAT IS IM SEXY 41 AND I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE, HE MAY NOT HAVE BUT 50 CENT. LOL
50 CENT no more LIKE MONKEY CENT..DATS WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE..A MONKEY
God don't like ugly and 50 has done some ugly things to people in the past. He helped destroy Ja Rule's career, trashing him for singing. Then, what does 50 do? The same *** thing.
VicSage: Madoff was about his money, there are a lot of white people who didn't have HALF as much money that 50 cent has, and they lost IT ALL, so please RESEARCH before you make such a statement. A crook doesn't care about how much money you have as long as they can figure out a way to take it from you. Madoff STOLE from EVERYONE, 50 cent is considered well to do, so what are you talking about, what kills me is that white people TOUT themselves as EXPERTS in every field, but NONONE had enough common sense to REALLY investigate this man--once I saw that he wasn't offereing the info via the internet, I would've been onto the scheme. Also, never trust someone who's on the smae board that regulates what their company does-that should've been a NO-BRAINER for the ultra rich, ultra-stupid, and now ultra-BROKE elitists! The most I would give to a REPUTABLE company is $500,000, and that's a BIG MAYBE.
I work for a Capital Markets Firm I think I would know the in and outs of his dealings and clientele. Sweetie I'm the last guy you should try to chin check on some paper and the trail it leads to and from.You are nowhere near my universe with the Intell I possess..True Talk.

MADOFF. DON'T CARE ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE
HE'S NOT BROKE.
dont understand why people with 50 or 60 millions would invest in these stock companies, why not put the money in some CD in the bank where it would have government protection.
good thing he has plenty to invest
I love that MAN!!!
I'll believe this when a reliable news source report it, I'm sure they'll have facts t back it up. Remember MTO said 50 was gonna buy that Death Row catalogue.
LOL @ GoodGirl2, that was funny.
LMAO @ lilhairdreads and spermmakesprettykids: You two are hilarious.
And to this post: IF this is true, let's just 50 learned a big lesson: Don't entrust people with your money just because they're white.
BELIEVE ME 7 FIGURES WASN'T GOING TO PUT HIM IN A HOMELESS ***.
Easy come, easy go
WELL,IF HE KEEPS DOING THINGS OF THIS NATURE, "50 CENT" WILL BE ALL HE HAS IN HIS BANK ACCOUNT.
WOW THAT SUCKS FOR HIM! HIS MONEY IS DRAININ SLOWLY!
@michelleobamawannabe I KNOW RIGHT!
HE WILL BE GIVING UP THAT BIG MANSION ON CRIBS! KARMA IS A *** ***!
50 GET MONEY I DONT GIVE A
Can't Knock The HUSTLE!
Diversification is key. Never put all of your eggs into one basket.
SO WHAT ? I LOST MONEY ON ALL THOSE SCRATCH OFFS I BOUGHT YESTERDAY FROM QUIK TRIP. HE HE
YEAH,IT'S JUST A TURN ON TO SEE A BLACK MAN INVESTING , PERIOD. I LOVE THAT WORD, I *** V E S T.
IT MEANS YOU ARE NOT JUST LIVING FOR TODAY, BUT MULTIPLYING YOUR EARNINGS FOR THE FUTURE. GO 50!
Vicsage...If you really work where you claim you do, you would know that people invested in Bernie Madoff who NEVER came in contact with him.
He had private firms and hedge funds investing him where he would know maybe one to two people at the very top. Many people who invested with him never even met him...They knew people who knew people.
With all the Old Jewish money in the Record Industry, you would have to be CRAZY or STUPID to think that he could not get in those circles.
Just another person claiming to be something they are not...wow what a surprise.
As long as you believe the BS you're slinging that's fine with me champ. We all tend to believe our own reality at some point only sometime some of us tend to do it more than most as it seems in the case file in which you fall.." Live on Dunny because when 5 O'Clock hits today I'll still be that dude that's paid..I love you lames because truth be told you make the world a litle less boring and all the more entertaining for me! Thanks!I wish I had a Hallmark to send.. Bank Talk.
fif! you win some...
it's crazy how much money he made... even celebs are losing out! this article sums up the new situation now: http://www.octagonfirstcall.com/celebrityconsulting/Blog/
you people are idiots. why is he wrong for investing his money? how was he to know the guy was going to be stealing it? Investing you money is a GOOD thing people. just to bad theres bad people in the world stealing it. im pretty sure all his money wasnt invest in one place. you dummies.
HEY FIRE4U...LOL @YOUR COMMENT. I LOSE MONEY ALL THE TIME ON THEM *** SCRATCH OFFS TOO.
I THINK 50 IS A VERY SMART BUSINESS MAN. HE WOULDN'T HAVE INVESTED HIS MONEY IF HE THOUGHT THE GUY WAS GOING TO STEAL IT. THAT GOES FOR ANYBODY.
... who didn't have money invested with Madoff??? ... lol ...
Lmao he really would be in a deep hole!! He's really lucky!!
What I bad investment! He needs to be trying to get paid whenever he shops, just like me!
Ish happens. . . .cant win 'em all
eww it smells like fish in here!!!
Lately things haven't been looking so good for 50. He has to clean house and make a dramatic change.
Serves him right.
That's sad. That man messed up a lot of people's lives. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
