HARTFORD, Conn. -- You might not have love for 50 Cent after you hear what he's been up to.

Curtis James Jackson, aka 50, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday. So we guess 50 Cent doesn't even have 50 cents to his name!

He filed after a judge ordered him to pay a woman $5 million bucks after she says the rapper posted a sex tape she made with her boyfriend without her permission.

Talk about 50 shades of gross!

But what's five million to a rapper who makes it rain in every video, right?

Well, in May, it was said 50 was worth a whopping $155 million, but he now lists his assets between 10 and 50 million. Hmm, something doesn't add up there!

But 50 Cent isn't the only one filing bankruptcy after committing a crime; closer to home, Danny Deari, owner of Pastazio's Pizza in Addison, has also been ordered to pay up some big bucks; $21.4 million to be exact!

It's not for serving up bad pizza; according to the Dallas Morning News, he pleaded guilty to raping and giving herpes to an 18-year-old who went in for a job interview in 2011.

The woman says Deari pressured her into drinking at Pastazio's until she passed out and woke up after Deari was on top of her in a hotel room.

Since then, Deari has filed for personal and business bankruptcy and avoided jail time by entering a plea deal.

Moral of this story: Don’t do the crime if you can't pay the fine!
