Rapper 50 Cent sells Connecticut mansion for 84% less than his original asking price

A Florida businessman has come forward as the person who bought bankrupt rapper 50 Cent’s Connecticut mansion for a song.

After listing it initially for $18.7 million in 2007, 50 Cent sold his mansion in Farmington, Connecticut this week for $1.2 million less than the $4.1 million he paid for it 12 years ago – an 84% drop in asking price, according to CBS News.   :o

This after the rapper poured between $6 million and $10 million into it in renovations after buying it from boxer Mike Tyson in 2004, the Hartford Courant reported.

Lucky buyer Casey Askar, who picked up the discounted property for $2.9 million, also plans to pour millions into renovations, the Hartford Courant said.

The 50,000-square-foot building has 52 rooms, including 21 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms, according to USA Today. There’s also an indoor pool, a hot tub, a green screen room, a recording studio, a full gym, a conference room, and its own nightclub, the newspaper noted. It sits on 17 acres, the Courant said.

The new owner said he has many ties in the area and that his family will use the property. In addition he’ll hold business retreats there, the Courant reported.

“It gave us something of the magnitude to be functional for the business and the family,” said Askar, who closed the deal on Monday, to the Courant “We saw an opportunity as far as value and size.”

He and his Naples, Florida-based company, the Askar Group, bought the property for $2.9 million, the businessman told the Courant. He is president and chairman of Askar Brands, which oversees the family business’s many restaurant investments.

Askar said he plans to rip out the stripper poles, dismantle the nightclub and erase the signs of 1980s-era “conspicuous consumption” left by Benjamin Sisti, the convicted real estate fraudster who owned it before 50 Cent.

This house was featured on "Selling New York". It's a HUGE place, but some of his customizing probably led to the lack of market interest.

Many on here may not care but it is interesting that Manning will return because the

Danny Manning has a 24-66 record in the ACC over 5 years.

He must have some pictures or something on somebody:shrug:

Keep Eastern Standard Time permanent.

Why on earth would the GOP not vote for this bill? Certainly they could debate what changes they want.  Their president ran on 'draining the swamp'. Some of this provisions will do just that.  But the House voted along party lines with the GOP voting against and the Senate will note vote because Mitch is a BITCH.  :no:

Who thought this was a good idea for him. Go to 6:10 for the fireworks.

I guess Coach K is going to be cussin' out Nike after Zion Williamson's shoe literally came apart during the game and possibly injured the star player.

He hasn't played since hobbling off the court.

Coach probably wishing he'd stayed with Adidas now  :lol:

UPDATE: Williamson will not return, knee injury.

The Soul Train/Don Cornelius story (my interpretation)

whose watching?  Very entertaining.

BET is putting out some good stuff lately.

Mary Jane will be back in April and they advertised two other shows which look promising.
