Rapper 50 Cent is not known for his humble nature, as the Inquisite readers may remember from the coverage of the extremely crass tweets he sent out when he was filing for bankruptcy. 50 might have just taken his signature cockiness to a whole new level, though, by casually dismissing and even laughing at the fact that his 52-bedroom mansion just got broken into and looted.
TMZ was the first to report that Elwin Joyce was arrested on Tuesday for forcing his way into 50 Cent’s estate in Farmington, Connecticut.
Joyce was apparently caught on the property itself and arrested on several charges, including trespassing, burglary, and “possession of burglary tools.” Police said they attended to the scene in droves after being tipped off by security personnel on the property that an entry alarm had been triggered.
“What my house got robbed,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. “I thought I sold that MF. LOL.” He accompanied the text with several images from the TMZ coverage.
The term “home” hardly seems befitting of 50 Cent’s burgled estate; it is more like a small hotel. The place covers 50,000 square feet and sits on 17 acres of land. Just to put that in perspective, the house itself takes up almost the area of a football field with its multiple stories and, according to Metro, contains 52 bedrooms.
The entire parcel of land takes up about 15 football fields. That’s certainly enough space for 50 Cent to throw a party.
The real reason the term “home” could barely be applied to the property, though, is because neither 50 nor anybody else was living there. It had been devoid of residents for months and, in fact, had been put up for sale during 50’s aforementioned bankruptcy lawsuit — it had reportedly been costing him $72,000 a month in upkeep.
Apparently, 50 Cent did not get the memo that the monstrous house had failed to sell.
