50 Cent Son Claims His Parents Separation Deteriorates His Relationship With His Father
Rapper 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson), a Power star, and his son Marquise have a well-known history of disagreement and frequently take aim at one another in interviews and on social media. And now that Marquise poked fun at his father on Instagram, their tumultuous relationship is once again in the news.
In his post, he made his father an offer to pay $6,700 to get back 24 hours of one-on-one time. After facing criticism for an Instagram Live video in which he claimed $6,700 was insufficient to “maintain his lifestyle,” Marquise, 25, posted the image online.
The picture’s caption read: “Since you all believe that $6,700 is an exorbitant sum of money, please have someone inform my father that I will pay him $6,700 for just one day of his time so that we can fulfill all of my childhood fantasies. Any color he wants, from red to yellow to green.” This is not the first time in the public eye that 50 Cent and Marquise have traded insults.
On October 13, 1997, Marquise was born to parents 50 Cent and Shaniqua Tompkins. However, after Tompkins and 50 Cent divorced in 2008, Marquise, then 11 years old, became the focus of a protracted custody dispute. In the end, 50 Cent was allowed to spend one weekend each month with his son.
In February 2017, Marquise released his debut single “Different.” Marquise explained how their relationship deteriorated as a result of his parents’ separation in an interview with Rap Up conducted in advance of the release of “Different.” “It completely went south when I was probably 10 or 11,” he remarked. He didn’t actually hang out enough. With the passage of time and the occurrence of specific events, it kind of diminished.
“For me, I just started feeling differently about him because growing up, my dad was my superhero. He’s on television, he does this, he does this, he would take me to school. It was like having a father who’s Superman, more or less. “But then, as I got older, you start realizing things or you start seeing certain patterns and it takes an effect on your relationship with people. That’s what happened with me and my father. He’s still alive but I can’t tell you our last conversation or the last time we even had a dialogue.”
