Check it out yourself.
So, how did Marquise Jackson and 50 Cent – father and son – became such archenemies of each other? Let’s find out the timeline of their never-ending feud.
Marquise Jackson – 50 Cent’s Inspiration
Marquise Jackson was like a burst of sunshine for 50 Cent when he was born in 1997. He loved his firstborn dearly and even got a tattoo for his kid on his bicep. He wanted to have a special bond with his son that he never had with his father. Isn’t that sweet? Yes, it is but sadly, it did not remain so for a long time. It all started when Shaniqua and 50 Cent broke up. Marquise Jackson was merely 10 years old at that time.
The separation was ugly and the two adults did not handle it responsibly at all. The controversy began over 50 Cent’s $4 million house that he had promised to Shaniqua. He denied her the place after break up and wanted her to move out. As obvious, the matter was taken to the court. Things went really ugly when the place was ‘suspiciously’ burnt down Shaniqua openly accused 50 Cent of being behind it.
50 Cent’s Will
In 2012, when Marquise Jackson was 16, 50 Cent sent him a text asking if it would matter to him if his father died suddenly. He mentioned that he is changing his will and he wants to know how his son feels about him.
The teenager was already edgy about his father’s negligence and replied with a complaint that his father did not even wish him on his birthday.
50 Cent declared that he is removing him and his sister from his will to which Marquise Jackson replied that he is not interested in his money. The messages went on for hours and 50 at some point abused Shaniqua and insinuated that Marquise might not even be his real son. 50 made a poor defense by stating that he thought he was sending the texts to Shaniqua.
50 Cent Has No Son
That’s not what we are saying but that is what he said. He announced it on social media that he does not believe that he has any son. His actions were taken pretty seriously when he did not even show up at his son’s graduation ceremony. He said he was visiting a charity in New York and he wasn’t invited.
Shaniqua said that a parent does not need an invitation to their child’s grad ceremony. Things heated up even further when he updated a picture on social media with his son and said that Marquise is going to hate his mother when he sees her real face.
Shaniqua responded by pointing out that it is him who has been bullying and dissing his son all the time. Marquise simply said that it does not even matter as 50 Cent’s career is almost over and soon he will be a nobody.
Phew!! The drama does not seem to end but we hope the trio finds their peace very soon.
