50 Cent is known for being a lot of things in life. He’s been known as a thug and is now mostly known as an impressive business man. However, with all of the glamor surrounding his music and movie star lifestyle, little is ever said Fif as a father. Curtis Jackson is now putting that as a priority as he fights to see his eleven year old son Marquis.
“I’m not going through a custody battle; just a transition,” 50 told MTV. “I’d like to be able to just see my baby.”
While his son has traveled with him on major tours in the past, things have changed and their time together has been taken away.
“In the summertime, for the first two years I was successful, my son has traveled with us on those tours. He was on the Rock the Mic Tour, he was on the Anger Management Tour. This summer, when he’s free, it’s, like, no communication. It’s tough.”
That’s not the only change in their lives. His mother Shaniqua Tompkins‘ home was burned down recently. When it happened, she told TMZ she thought it was 50 Cent who burned the home down. Fif denied the allegations.
“I really don’t wanna talk about it, because my son at some point will have the opportunity to see the tapes. She’s still his mother, and I’m still his father, regardless. He’s gonna love both of us,” he said.
Still, according to 50, Marquis‘ relationship with his mother has also changed.
“My relationship with my son is changing because he and his mom aren’t friends anymore. There’s different channels I have to go through. He has lawyers appointed to him through the court. So I have to talk to his lawyer to get things situated for me to for me to actually get him. The relationship between my wallet and his mom has changed. When people have expensive habits, it’s a hell of a transition for them when that money is not there anymore. She said all kind of things about me I never would expect.”
This has hurt 50. As he explained, it is the toughest moment he’s had to go through.
“I think he doesn’t want his mom to feel like he’s a traitor,” he continued. “The time I spent away is the time he developed this thing he’s afraid to break with her. There’s nothing you can do about that. This is the toughest [thing I’ve had to face], because he’s my motivation.”
