Curtis James Jackson III, the rapper better known as 50 Cent, filed new bankruptcy papers on Monday giving a deeper look at the state of his finances.

Documents filed in Connecticut bankruptcy court showed Jackson claiming total assets of $24.8 million and liabilities of more than $32.5 million, constituting a shortfall of nearly $8 million for the rapper who was recently ordered to pay $7 million in damages to a woman who sued a sex tape that was posted without her permission.
