50cent selling Mike Tysons former home
Successful Rap Artist 50 Cent real name Curtis James Jackson is selling his 52 room Connecticut mansion that he has reportedly spent some 6million Dollars on in renovations. The house which was once owned by Boxer Mike Tyson was bought by 50cent in September 2003 for a cool 4.1 million Dollars.
The house benefits from its own Helicopter Pad and offers plenty of room covering 48,000 plus square feet/
Curt Clemens, owner of Century 21 Clemens & Sons in Hartford, toured the house a few months ago after being contacted by representatives of the rapper who said he wanted to sell the property.
Clemens, who was the listing agent on the house when it was owned by Tyson, said that he was notified a few weeks ago that another real estate agent would be handling the sale.
"I was surprised it hadn't come on the market because we were expecting it," Clemens said. "He's put a lot into it, and it's all very tasteful, except the stripper poles."
