“Broke” rapper 50 Cent has brazenly published another photo of himself on social media with bundles of cash despite being ordered by a bankruptcy judge to explain previous images he posted to his Instagram account.

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, seemed to taunt the court with the latest series photos on social media, showing him with huge stacks of cash.

Judge Ann Nevins ordered the rapper to court last week, demanding an explanation for the Instagram pictures and said it raised doubts for his need for bankruptcy.

Jackson was forced to file for bankruptcy in June 2015 after a judge ordered him to pay $ 7 million dollars to Lastonia Leviston, who sued the rapper over a sex-tape.

The rapper also owes a debt to two of his creditors SunTrust Bank and Sleek Audio, for a combined $29 million collectively.

Fifty was mandated to disclose his personal finances as part of his filing for bankruptcy.

“The allegations of nondisclosure and the lack of transparency in the case is worrying,” judge Nevins said on Thursday at a hearing in Hartford, Connecticut.

“There’s a purpose of having a bankruptcy process be transparent, and part of that mission is to inspire confidence in the process,” said Nevins, before adding

However, days after the hearing, the rapper ignored the judge’s concerns and shared another photo on his Instagram account showing him standing next to a wall of money.

Jackson previously posted photos which initially raised the concerns of Judge Nevins. The first shows 50 Cent with stacks of cash in his fridge around a bottle of Effen vodka.

Other images include Jackson arranging hundred dollar bills to spell the word “BROKE” and the rapper sitting with on a bed of cash and stacked in his fridge. “Man this lunch money, I’ve got to go to work I’m still up, no Sleep at all. NEW MUSIC this week, Off The KANAN tape,’ Jackson wrote in the post.

His attorneys claimed that the Instagram posts were part of branding his image as an entertainer and maintained that mentioning the pictures in court filings was intended to smear their client.

“To add photos from [Mr. Jackson’s] social media accounts and suggest that [he] is intentionally hiding assets from the three creditors ignore the fact that [Mr. Jackson] is in the entertainment and promotion business,” the lawyers wrote in court filings.
