50 Cent’s attorney provided a statement to BI.
âFiling for personal bankruptcy protection is a complex and often time-consuming process,â says William A. Brewer III, partner at Brewer, Attorneys & Counselors. “Lost in reports of Mr. Jackson’s individual assets, liabilities and expenses is the reason for the filing – to pursue an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs.”
Brewer added, “It is important to remember that filing for protection allows Mr. Jackson to continue his active involvement in numerous business, entertainment and philanthropic interests.”
