50 Cent Had Thoughts About His Son Marquise Jackson’s Public Child Support Comments And Appeal To Spend Time Together
Last week, Marquise Jackson was stuntin’ like his daddy when he publicly called out his estranged father, 50 Cent, and proposed that he’d pay him $6,700–the amount of monthly child support Fif paid–to spend 24 hours together. It went about as well as you’d think, with 50 trolling Marquise by posting a scene from Power on Instagram where his character kills his own son. 50 was recently a guest on The Breakfast Club and further addressed Marquise’s comments about child support and their flaming train wreck of a relationship.
Host, Charlamagne Tha God, brought up the notion of Marquise wanting to sit down to have a talk with 50, but he says he’s not buying it. via Complex:
When the topic of Marquise suggesting he wants to sit down for a talk with his father was brought up, 50 said, “No he doesn’t. See, Charlamagne, you would call me. You don’t call TMZ to say you want to sit down. Think about it, man. You know, he wants some attention, and it’s okay he can have as much of that as he wants,” he added.
Said the most attention-craving, publicly mess-making rapper of all time. 50 also implied that Marquise had been brainwashed by his mother into thinking that the financial support his father contributed was insufficient when according to him, he was actually paying more than his share for a long time.
Explaining his thoughts on the situation further, Fif suggested that Marquise has been “trained” to believe what he said in his recent TMZ interview “for a long time.”
“You don’t just wake up and say, ‘Oh well I don’t believe what I’ve been believing forever,’” he continued. “When I said that he’s entitled, really it’s his Mom’s entitlement but it’s been filtered. I told you I was giving half a million dollars a year, they go through the paperwork they see half a million dollars a year. At that point, she still was expecting more. This is why I took out child support. You don’t usually sign up for child support, like, I took myself to child support. Because she wasn’t understanding that I’m already giving you more than you’re supposed to get.”
50 added that he doesn’t feel the “pressure or resentment that men feel with child support,” because he wants to take care of his children “when the problems happen.”
And of all people to comment on respect, Instagram-troller extraordinaire, 50, decided to give a fatherly lecture about that, too.
Marquise turned 26 this month, and Fif agreed with Angela Yee’s comparison to that of Power Book III: Raising Kanan. “It’s really like him, the kid has been sheltered,” he said. “If you mailed someone a million dollars, right, and [they] have zero respect for you, how much you think you got to give them before they have a little bit?”
Here’s 50’s whole The Breakfast Club interview. The bit about him and Marquise still beefing starts at the 20:56 mark:
The relationship between 50 Cent and Starz Network, on which his show airs, has recently been fraught and heading toward ruin as well. Since 50 might be network-less soon and has money tied up in a bogus penile-enhancement lawsuit; and Marquise says that $6,700 a month wasn’t enough to live on, I think the feuding father-son duo should settle this the old-fashioned way: sign on with the WWE and take it to the ring. It would be lucrative for both and might distract them from showing their entire dramatic asses on Instagram for a minute.
