50 Cent reduces asking price for Connecticut mansion _ again

FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent has lowered the asking price for his Connecticut mansion again after filing for bankruptcy in the state this past summer.

The Hartford Courant reports (http://cour.at/1Ocr4YD ) the new listing for 50 Cent's 21-bedroom, 25-bathroom home in Farmington is $8.5 million.

The rapper bought the 50,000-square-foot mansion for $4.1 million in 2003, but reports say he invested between $6 million to $10 million on renovations.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, first asked for $18.5 million for the home in 2007 and has been periodically reducing its price ever since.

High-end residential real estate expert Rob Giuffria says "50 would have a better chance being a country music singer" than finding a buyer at $8.5 million.

The listing broker couldn't be reached for comment.
