50 Cent's recent bankruptcy claim is being called into question in light of several photos on his Instagram account.

In posts over several months, the rapper shows off stacks of money, even spelling out the word "broke" in cash.

According to reports, after seeing some of those social media posts, a Connecticut judge said she was concerned about his alleged "lack of transparency" and ordered him to appear in court.

50 Cent, whose legal name is Curtis James Jackson III, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last summer.

A bankruptcy document for the rapper said he wasn't filing because of excessive spending but because of increasing legal fees.

"I get a bull's-eye painted on your back. You know, when you're successful, it's publicly noted you become the ideal person for people to have lawsuits for," 50 Cent said on TBS' "Conan."

Notably, he was involved in a lawsuit for allegedly posting a woman's sex tape online. He was also involved in litigation over a failed headphones deal with Sleek Audio.
