We knew celebs were posting random Twitter ads to make some sweet side cash, but we never figured they'd be worth millions of bucks!

Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, worked his Twitter account Monday to help launch the shares of a no-name penny stock company called H&H Imports, which he's also invested some major cash in.

Cent Tweeted:

    "You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford."

Who could resist that opportunity? It definitely worked out for the rapper; H&H closed at 39 cents yesterday, up 29 cents, and boosting 50 Cent's 30 million-share stake by $8.7 million. Cha Ching!

Hey, when your Twitter account is 3.8 million followers strong, it can definitely be considered a lucrative side business.

After seeing 50 in that hilarious wig in his role of sex tape narrator, we hardly think he minds that his lady was letting it all hang out at the VIP Room in Paris last night.

In fact, I bet he'd like to stick his 50 cents in her slot!

Oops! While 50 Cent doesn't actually STAR in the sex tape in question, his role in it has landed him in hot water.

Lastonia Leviston filed a lawsuit against the rapper yesterday, claiming he unlawfully distributed footage of her sex tape on his website, causing her emotional distress.

50 Cent spliced shots of himself in the XXX video, and he dons a wig and a robe as he narrates the tape. While that sounds hilarious to us, apparently Leviston didn't see the humor in it.

Reps for the rapper wouldn't comment on the matter.
