'I, 50 Cent, Swear to Tell the Truth ...'

6/3/2009 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

50 Cent was his own best witness in court yesterday -- taking the stand in a case over a 52-room Connecticut mansion he bought from Mike Tyson.

50 Cent

Fitty -- who's worth a reported $150 mil -- is all pissed off because he claims he hired an inspection company to go through the place before he bought it -- and they told him it would only cost around $500,000 to fix up.

But the rapper claims he was misled -- and after he bought it, the real fix-up cost was around $3 mil.

The inspection company is stickin' by their story. The trial is still going on today...

Too much money....too little brains. This is why the rap community should not be allowed to take home this much income in our new socialist republic. This type of cash could go to those who actually contribute something to a decent society. We never hear about these greedy, materialistic m-fer's donating any of their stash to charity that's fo schizzle.

Let the buyer beware is rule number one in real estate.

His net worth is probably way more than that. More like around $400-500 mil. He banked $100 million alone in the vitamin water deal, and that's after taxes...

To the idiot above Vitamin Water only makes about 355 million a year in revenues not including all the expenses they shell out where the hell would they get 100 million to pay 50 cent for a TV commercial its not even a movie.

He did not make a 100 million on a deal to be a vitamin ad.

unless he paid the guy to give him a written estimate on what it would cost to do the work, he doesn't have a leg to stand on. anyone can give you a "guess" as to how much its going to cost -- but until you actually get someone out there to give you an estimate you really don't know what its going to cost!.

Sorry guys, vitamin water was originally owned by Glaceau, which Fifty had a considerable stake of. Glaceau was then purchased by Coca-Cola for $4.1 Billion, leaving Fifty with a $100 Mil payout from that deal alone. Please check your facts before you call me an idiot. I never said that Vitamin Water payed him that much for doing an "ad."
