According to a lawsuit filed in 2017 by the National Bank Association, the couple stopped making payments in 2010 and their debt had grown to $1.24 million with interest. The bank eventually foreclosed and sold the mansion.

Controversy

Jones challenged rapper Tru Life to a fight in 2006 with a $50,000 wager after Tru Life referred to Cam’ron and Jim Jones as “bitches.” Tru Life responded to the challenge by stealing Jones’ jewelry and taunting him on the mixtape “Tru York” in 2007. Jones was photographed in a “Borat”-style thong for the album. Jones retaliated by gaining access to Tru Life’s MySpace page.

Jones also started a bitter rivalry with Jay Z when he criticized Z’s work as Def Jam president. Jay Z responded with “Brooklyn High,” a diss track set to the beat of Jones’ popular “We Fly High.” On December 22, 2008, Jones punched and kicked a friend of Jay Z at the Manhattan Louis Vuitton store.

Other feuds include one with ASAP Mob, which arose following a 2014 interview in which Jones criticized Mob’s style as “not street.” “They’re creative, but they’re not from the streets… We’ve got real swag and the definition of fly… The price point and high fashion do not make it cool.” Jones also had a social media feud with Azealia Banks in July 2012, after Banks criticized Jones for taking credit for her phrase “vamp.” She attributed this to not only his song “Vamp Life,” but also to his mixtape series and label of the same name. Banks made a dig at Jones in the song “Succubi.”
