Yes, this estate is in Farmington, not lower Fairfield County, but it is the home of world-famous rapper, actor and entrepreneur, 50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III. Originally listed for $18.5 million, the asking price has been lowered to $9,999,999 after an intermediate stop at $14.5 million.
The 52-room, 50,000 square-foot mansion built in 1985 was once the property of boxer Mike Tyson, who bought it in 1996 from a Lithuanian businessman. The former heavyweight champion was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in December.
In 2003, after a five-year marriage and subsequent divorce, Tyson’s ex-wife, Monica Turner, sold the home to 50 Cent for $4.1 million. He has reportedly put in improvements and additions costing as much as $6 million. Dr. Turner, who originally asked $25 million for the estate she received in the divorce settlement, is a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Medicine, specializing in pediatrics.
