Judge: 50 Cent Can Sell Ex-Employee’s Home to Settle $7M Debt

June 26, 2023 | By Kali Girl

50 Cent is out here confiscating homes! According to Hip Hop DX, in a recent ruling, a judge has allowed 50 Cent to sell his ex-employee’s home in order to recover a $7 million debt.

Mitchell Green, who used to work as a brand manager for Sire Spirits, tried to protect his property in Connecticut from being sold off by claiming a “homesteading” exemption.

This exemption, enacted in 2021, safeguards homeowners up to $250,000 during bankruptcy proceedings. Green filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, commonly referred to as liquidation bankruptcy, which involves selling nonexempt assets to repay creditors.

50 Cent’s attorney James Berman of Zeisler & Zeisler PC, argued that Green’s Connecticut home didn’t qualify for a homesteading protection because the claim that Sire Spirits made against Green predated the passing of the 2021 Connecticut homesteading exemption.

Berman also argued that Green’s home wasn’t entitled to homesteading protection because Green used funds embezzled from Sire Spirits to improve upon his home — thus making it part and parcel of an ongoing crime.

U.S. District Judge John P. Cronan upheld the ruling, yet Green continues to challenge the decision. In March, the court ordered Green to pay $6,283,598.50 in compensatory damages, along with pre- and post-judgment interest.

Green is also suing Michael Caruso, the alleged co-conspirator in this scheme, for his share of the profit, according to the initial lawsuit.
