One of 50 Cent’s homes in Dix Hills, New York went up in flames early this morning and was completely destroyed. It’s not right, but now I’ve got “Burning Down the House” in my head and it won’t get out. 50’s 10-year-old son, Marquise, and his ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins were sent to the hospital for smoke inhalation along with 4 other people. They were treated and released.
The Fire Department Chief doesn’t think the fire was accident. I bet the chief has a bushy moustache. They all do. He said that arson investigators were called in and there are currently no suspects.
The house has a dramatic history. Last month, 50 tried to throw out Shaniqua and his son from the home. He told her ass to pay him $4,500 in rent or she had to get the fuck out. Shaniqua filed a lawsuit claiming 50 promised to put the $1.4 million house in her name.
TMZ has a video of Shaniqua and 50 screaming at each other on the streets of Manhattan yesterday. I’ve been to the Baskin Robbins’ they are fighting in front of! They should have gone in and shared a cup of Jamoca Almond Fudge.
The fight occurred shortly after the two were being deposed at Shaniqua’s lawyer offices. During the depo, one of 50’s friends went crazy and started trashing the lawyer’s offices. A police report was filed.
50’s spokesbitch issued this statement to TMZ: “Informed this morning while filming a new motion picture on location in Louisiana, Curtis Jackson expressed deep concern over this fire at his property. He is extremely thankful that everyone including his son, Marquise, escaped the burning house safely. He is confident that authorities will be conducting a thorough investigation of the incident and is eager to review their findings.”
Damn….this shit is going to get interesting. I think it’s also time to put the batteries back into my smoke detector.
