50 Cent, the actor, businessman and rapper known for songs like “I Get Money,” secured a $14.5 million settlement from Garvey Schubert Barer (GSB), according to court documents filed last week in U.S. bankruptcy court in Connecticut. The award will help him pay his creditors and end a bankruptcy proceeding he initiated last year.
50 Cent, whose legal name is Curtis Jackson III, burst onto the music scene in 2003 with his “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” album. He sued GSB last year for $75 million, accusing the firm of malpractice by not adequately representing him in business negotiations and in an arbitration proceeding with earphone manufacturer Sleek Audio LLC.
