50 Cent isn't selling his Farmington, Connecticut mansion simply because he's bankrupt.
He's actually been trying to unload the 21-bedroom, 25-bathroom home since 2007.
Fif bought the mega-mansion from Mike Tyson in 2003 for $4.1 million, and then did between $6 and 10 million in renovations on the property.
50 initially listed the mansion for $18.5 million but got no bites. So he's been periodically reducing the asking price. His bankruptcy has given him a new sense of urgency, and now it's on the market $8.5 million.
But he still hasn't reduced it enough, according to high end real estate expert Rob Giuffria.
"50 would have a better chance being a country music singer than finding a buyer at $8.5 million," Giuffria told the New York Post, suggesting Fif didn't add a lot of value when he tricked out the pad.So unless you think Fif can pull a Nelly, you could probably offer a lot less than the $8.5 million and still score the storied property.
