030916-50-cent-instagramupdate_graphic_red_bar3:25 PM PT -- The hearing's ended, and the judge did not rule yet on whether an examiner will be needed to review 50 Cent's assets. Nor did she comment about the "fake" money pics that prompted his creditors to demand an examiner.

Stay tuned.update_grey_gray_bar

50 Cent thumbed his nose at his many, many creditors by showing up in bankruptcy court with stacks of cash -- possibly fake -- sticking out of his waistband. 

50 had to show up in a Hartford, CT court on Wednesday to face the judge over his social media poses with giant wads of money. As we first reported ... Fiddy claimed in docs the dough is just prop money he uses to keep up his image as a rich mogul.

Considering the reason for today's hearing, it was pretty bold (or stupid) of him to post this shot ... WHILE the hearing was still in progress.

We'll see if the judge digs 50's cents of humor.
