Wednesday night on "Conan," 50 said Southpaw co-star Jake Gyllenhaal was the one who snapped the photo when they passed the car in a nearly empty parking garage.

"I said, 'I should take a picture.' He took the picture," said 50 Cent on "Conan."

50 says his bankruptcy filing is just a reorganization of his finances. And he told Conan it can help him fight against people trying to take his hard-earned dough.

"You know, you got a bulls-eye pinned on your back. When you're successful and it's publicly noted, you become the ideal person for people to have lawsuits for," said 50 Cent.

That could be referring to a $5 million suit 50 Cent has been facing since 2010 from a woman who claims the rapper posted a sex tape of her without her consent.
But right now, 50 is just focusing on his new movie.

"Southpaw" premieres July 24.
