The rapper and actor known as 50 Cent has filed for federal bankruptcy protection days after a jury ordered him to pay $5m in an invasion-of-privacy lawsuit.

Curtis Jackson, who owns a home in Farmington, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in US District Court in Hartford.

The filing lists both his assets and liabilities as between 10 million and 50 million dollars.

It comes after a New York jury ordered Mr Jackson to pay 5 million dollars to a woman who said he acquired a video she made with her boyfriend, added himself as a crude commentator and posted it online without her permission.
