After claiming bankruptcy in court last year, 50 Cent's recent Instagram flexes have been called into question by his judge, particularly, some photos which find him posing with large amounts of cash.

According to TMZ, the rapper has responded to his judge's request for explanation by claiming the money seen in his photos (including one where he spelled out the word "broke" in stacks of hundreds to prove Rick Ross wrong) is fake, used only to "maintain his person".

Last week, 50 did produce documents that he still owns over $65 million in assets, so whether the cash is fake or not, he's not exactly out of money -- at least for now.
