50 Cent’s Son And Ex-Girlfriend Burned Out Of Home

May 31, 2008

The Roof, The Roof, The Roof Is On Fire…

50 Cent and son Marquis

For several months rapper 50 Cent has been fighting to have his 10-year-old son Marquis and the boy’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, evicted from the home he owns in which they reside in Dix Hills, New York. Things became so acrimonious, it ended up in court.

It was reported that a member of the rapper’s entourage trashed the office of Shaniqua’s lawyer. Today, it was reported the house burned down. The child and his mother were present and taken to the hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.

Many are speculating 50 Cent or someone in his entourage had something to do with the blaze, as the authorities have labeled the fire “highly suspicious.”

One thing is for sure, his son and the people that were present in the house at the time of the fire will be traumatized by this incident, as it was reported they had to flee the burning house from the second floor. Arson is a very serious crime punishable by years in prison.

They also lost some of their personal belongings in the fire. The house and its contents are most likely insured, but there are some things insurance just can’t replace, like a person’s peace of mind, especially that of a child.

50 Cent and Shaniqua

Having to flee your burning home from the second story, while your things go up in flames, is an experience they will never forget and someone ought to pay for that. Furthermore, what if someone had died in the blaze?

‘Suspicious’ fire guts 50 Cent-owned home in Dix Hills”

A raging fire that one fire official called “definitely suspicious” gutted a Dix Hills home owned by the Grammy-nominated rapper 50 Cent Friday morning, sending six people inside the house to the hospital.

An eyewitness told Newsday that among the injured, all of whom suffered smoke inhalation according to fire officials, were 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their 10-year-old son, Marquise.

“She was all right,” eyewitness Frank Hoyte, a Newsday employee, said, adding: “But she was angry.”

He said Tompkins was standing outside the home as it burned. Two young boys, one of them Marquise, two teenage girls and “an older woman” were also standing with Tompkins, Hoyte said.

“I walked around the back of the house and saw six people climbing out” of a second-story window onto a small eave, about 15 feet above the backyard, he said.

He then helped Tompkins, her 11-year-old son Marquise, another woman, and two other children and a teenager navigate their way to the ground, and he grabbed the children’s ankles as they dangled down from the roof.

“I helped break their fall,” Bose said. “One of the girls, I didn’t see what she had in her arms until later. She had a guinea pig in her arms,” Bose said.

“They were scared,” Bose said of the rescued people. “They thanked me.”


REPORT: Member of 50 Cent’s Entourage Trashes Lawyer’s Office

TMZ.com is reporting that 50 Cent and his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins were in a heated argument earlier this week that spilled out onto New York City streets.

The gossip website is also reporting that following a day of depositions, a member of 50’s entourage trashed Tompkins lawyer’s office and a police report was filed.

This escalated into an argument on the streets outside of the lawyer’s office. Video of the incident can be seen here.
