50 Cent has reportedly sold his massive Farmington, Connecticut mansion. 50 originally purchased the home from Mike Tyson’s ex-wife Monica Turner for $4.1 million. He then spent $6 million renovating the estate, and put it back on the market back in 2007. After years of waiting, 50 finally sold the home for $2.9 million.
The proceeds from the sale will be donated to his G-Unity foundation, which provides grants to non-profit organizations that work to improve the quality of life for low-income and underserved communities.
50 was paying nearly $70,000 per month to maintain the lavish estate. He recently opened up on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” about the struggles of maintaining such a large home:
“You know when you look down the hallway in your house and you don’t wanna go down there? Things would break because you didn’t use it. You didn’t turn it on, now the light is flickering.”
The mansion is made up of 21 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms, and also features a helicopter pad, casino, and a nightclub with stripper poles.
