Celebrities Filing Chapter 11 or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

At Canterbury law Group in Scottsdale, we have seen an increase in clients filing bankruptcy. It’s not only Scottsdale bankruptcy but, in fact, bankruptcy cases have become more common throughout the entire country. More individuals, usually with a high net worth, are turning to Chapter 11 or 13 to solve their bankruptcy needs.

Just recently, Curtis James Jackson III, the rapper better known as 50 Cent, filed for bankruptcy. Although we do not work directly with Jackson, we do know that Chapter 11 is how many celebrities have publicly dealt with their debt problems. You do not have to be completely out of money to file for Chapter 11, it merely means you do not have good current cash flow. Filing for personal bankruptcy allows Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he undergoes an orderly reorganization of his financial matters.

Jackson’s spending and business activity, including any personal salary , could be subject to the analysis and approval of bankruptcy court pending the review of his bankruptcy filing. Also, as in all Chapter 11 cases, when he files payment schedules, it will show all the details of his debts, assets, even whether or not he paid his landscaper on time.

The Scottsdale bankruptcy attorneys at Canterbury Law Group have significant experience with Chapter 11 filings, which tend to be multifaceted, and are capable of filing an individual case under Chapter 11 as mandated by the court.
