The judge has ordered the 40-year-old, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, to explain several pictures the photographs posted since filing for bankruptcy.

“I'm concerned about allegations of nondisclosure and a lack of transparency in the case,” Judge Nevins said at a hearing in Hartford, Connecticut, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“There's a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that purpose is to inspire confidence in the process.”

In one image, which has received 155,000 likes, Mr Jackson appears in bed covered with bundles of money.
