50 Cent Slashing Price Of Connecticut Mansion By Half
(AllHipHop News) Hip-Hop star 50 Cent has cut the price of his massive Connecticut mansion by half in a bid to offload the property, a decade after it was first listed.
The "In Da Club" hitmaker purchased the 52-room Farmington estate for $4.1 million from boxer Mike Tyson in 2003 and poured millions into renovations.
He then placed it on the market for $18.5 million in 2007 but took down the listing when it failed to attract a buyer, only to try again in 2015 following his bankruptcy filing.
50, real name Curtis Jackson, has now hired a new realtor to drum up some interest, recruiting "Million Dollar Listing" New York reality star and Douglas Elliman representative Fredrik Eklund, who has put the home up for sale for just under $5 million.
The lavish house boasts 19 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool with a hot tub, as well as its own nightclub, a full gym, a home theater, a recording studio, and a basketball court.
The news emerges eight months after a man was arrested for breaking into the property last May.
50 Cent, who was not at the sprawling pad at the time, joked about the incident on social media, quipping, "What my house got robbed, I thought I sold that MF (motherf##ker)."
He was previously said to have found a buyer for the one-time party palace in March 2016 for $8.5 million, after the interested party expressed plans to turn it into an assisted living facility.
But his representative subsequently clarified the claims, admitting that although there had been discussions, no contracts had been signed and the home remained for sale.
