On the heels of reports that 50 cent has been “neglecting” his son Marquise for two years, a source close to the rapper tells RumorFix exclusively that is not exactly the case.
The boy’s mother Shaniqua Tompkins went to the press to reveal that 50 hasn’t made any efforts to maintain a relationship with the 17-year-old, and that his son feels replaced by his father’s one-year-old son, Sire Jackson.
But our insider claims Tompkins’ recent media campaign comes from a place of selfishness and greed. “Shaniqua clearly doesn’t have her son’s best interest in mind to drag lies into the media, her main focus is always how anything will affect her son’s potential inheritance.”
Our source goes on to explain that 50 provides a very nice life for her and Marquise. “She is a very well taken care of woman and so is her son — she hasn’t had to work since 2002 when 50 first made it on the music scene. She has yet to have a job since then.”
But not only does 50 support Shaniqua and her son, but also her daughter from another relationship, and even bought the girl a Mercedes Benz as a gift for doing well in school.
Our source concludes that, ultimately, Shaniqua sees 50′s new son with girlfriend Daphne Joy as a threat, revealing, “This is all driven by Shaniqua being threatened her son will not be the only heir.”
RumorFix also spoke with a rep for 50 Cent, who tells us, “50 is saddened by the attention-seeking tactics of his son’s mother. He remains a proud and supportive father and feels blessed to have two sons.”
