Just In: 50 Cent not the “Real Blogger” on his Twitter?

50 Cent has no involvement in the Twitter.com account set up in his name, according to the rapper’s internet business manager.

The “In Da Club” hit maker, real name Curtis Jackson, recently appeared to have joined the throng of celebrities who use the social networking site to keep fans updated on their every movement.

But the hip-hop star’s online business manager, Chris ‘Broadway’ Romero, admits 50 has nothing to do with the page – all the posts are written by him.

However, Romero insists the messages are all written in the spirit of the rap superstar, as he takes quotes from 50 Cent magazine interviews and posts them directly onto the site.

Romero confesses to the New York Times, “He (50 Cent) doesn’t actually use Twitter. But the energy of it is all him.”

Tough Times: Marc Ecko in Debt!

Marc Ecko is really struggling through this economic downfall. His financial records have come forth stating his company is nearly $200 million in debt.

In an attempt to begin re-payment on two loans, Ecko has reportedly resorted to refinancing officials.

Ecko has hired investment bank Peter J. Solomon to help refinance at least $170 million in debt. The debts are owed to a couple of important business partners. If he can’t find a willing lender, Ecko may have to sell off some assets. Like many fashion outfits, the Marc Ecko brand took a hit during the past retail season. Sources say the company owes more than $100 million to Li & Fung, a global trading company that helps manufacture Marc Ecko products. He also also defaulted on a term loan of more than $70 million from a syndicate led by commercial-lending giant CIT and although he won forbearance on the loan, CIT will have to be paid by summer.

An Ecko rep has confirmed the allegations and weighed in on the designer’s plans of action.

“We’re pretty confident that this isn’t an issue that’s life-threatening at all,” Michael Golden, chief marketing officer at Marc Ecko Enterprises, said. “In our case, we have more than enough assets to pay off that term loan, and we have more than enough time.” Golden characterizes the $100 million due to Li & Fung as “normal trade payables” that fluctuate with seasonal inventory. And while he admits that “some businesses are doing better than others,” Golden noted strength in the company’s licensing and international units. (New York Post)

“Now I know why there hasn’t been any change on the opening of his store in Times Square. The construction for the building of the new store just stopped or I should say it never really started building.”
