50 Cent is suing a former business consultant for $810,000.

The 40-year-old rap star filed the lawsuit against Andrew Jameson in a federal bankruptcy court in Connecticut on Tuesday (22.09.15), alleging he improperly acted as his agent and collected fees without his permission.

Among the claims cited in the lawsuit is the allegation that Jameson improperly negotiated a deal for a reality show with E! Entertainment.

In July, the 'Candy Shop' star - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - filed for bankruptcy protection after a New York City jury ordered him to pay $7 million to a woman who claimed he posted online a sex tape that she'd made with a boyfriend.

However, 50 subsequently insisted he only filed for bankruptcy to protect his assets.

He explained: ''You get a bullseye painted on your back when you're successful, and it's public, you become the ideal person for lawsuits.''

Meanwhile, the rapper's recently-released bankruptcy filings revealed he has expenses of $108,000 a month, of which $1,000 is spent on his appearance, $3,000 on his wardrobe, $9,000 on security and $5,000 on gardening.

The majority of his costs are the $72,000 a month he pays for his 50-room mansion, including bills, mortgage, insurance and property tax.
