Fiddy owes $18.4 million dollars to Sleek Audio after a court ruled that he ripped off their design for headphones. He also has to fork over $5 million to Lastonia Leviston for leaking a sex tape without her permission. In addition to those debts, Fiddy owes over $130,00 to Bentley for a car lease. He has nearly $65,000 in credit card debt and needs to pay over $5,000 to a Park Avenue stylist.

If 50 Cent is strapped for cash, maybe he can ask his 2-year-old son for a loan? 50 Cent’s son, Sire, was signed to a modeling deal in March, landing a six-figure contract with Kidz Safe. Though the reported $700,000 that Sire was going to make for modeling won’t cover all of 50’s debts, it might help keep a roof over their heads and food on the table.
