Who Fired 50 Cent's Baby Mama?

5/30/2008 10:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A raging inferno broke out at a house owned by 50 Cent early this morning, and the local fire department tells us the fire is "highly suspicious".

The fire broke out at the six bedroom, five bath house in Dix Hills, NY around 5:00 AM. Six people, including the rapper's ex Shaniqua Tompkins and their 10-year-old son Marquise, were in the house. They all were transported to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.

The Chief of the Dix Hills Fire Department tells TMZ that dogs are currently searching the burned out rubble, as the intensity of the fire made it highly suspect. The Chief says they're searching for what substance possibly could have been used as an igniter.

The house has been the subject of a bitter dispute between Fiddy, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, and Tompkins. The rapper reportedly bought the home -- one of the biggest cribs in the area -- for a cool $2.4 mil in January 2007. Last month he tried to evict Tompkins and Marquise from the house, demanding she pay him $4,500 a month in rent.

Story developing ...

UPDATE 10:25 AM ET: Suffolk Police tell us they received a call at 5 AM. An off-duty police officer was driving by and stopped to help rescue the victims inside the house -- including a pet guinea pig. We're told injuries to all six victims -- including Tompkins -- are non-life threatening and they have been treated and released from the hospital. While they are currently investigating the fire's cause, we're told 50 Cent is not a suspect at this point.

EVERYONE PLEASE READ!!

There is an interview 50 did with Hot 97 where he discusses the situation on his baby mama drama. You can find it on YouTube titled "50 Cent Explains Kicking Out His Baby's Mother"

AND

APPROXIMATELY AN HOUR BEFORE THE FIRE, SHANIQUA ALLEGES THAT SHE HEARD "SOMEONE" ENTER HER HOME (TECHNICALLY 50'S HOME). SO WHY ARE THERE NO RECORDS WITH THE POLICE DEPARTMENT ABOUT A POSSIBLE BREAK IN...?? BECAUSE NO SUCH INCIDENT HAPPENED. IT'S ALL A SET UP. I KNOW IF I HEARD "SOMEONE" ENTERING MY HOME AT 4AM IN THE MORNING UNANNOUNCED I WOULD HAVE ONE HAND ON THE GLOC AND THE OTHER ON THE PHONE CALLING 911!!

I think 50 paid someone to do it...It was smart to get her out but I think it was very irrisponsible on his part.Think about it ,50 is worth about 100 mil easy.A fight at the lawyers office after she enters a deposition 2 days beforethe fire..He screams "I'm slap you"A fire in the biggest mansion(worth 2.5 MILLION) on the block.No cameras or security..AND HE'S NOT A SUSPECT....LIKE THEY SAY MONEY TALK BULL**** WALK..All i say is leave the son out of it...

This is increible that happened like this but i bet the woman is wrong in U.S.A black people who get the top always get trouble why? You know why? cause peeps are always ambitious especially when you're from the bottom and get the top why they try to accuse 50? Now is the 3th man on Forbes Magazine that means he gets more that they've been expecting they just wanna drop him down. don't worry 50 God is with you keep staying positive be patient as you did before and God will do the rest.

the math major    

Someone said do the math. Let's start with some simple multiplication

1. $25,000 X 12 = $300,000.00 yearly income

2. $4,500 X 12 = $54,000.00 yearly rent

3. That leaves $246,000.00 to live off without having to lift a finger to work

4. Shaniqua you should have stayed in school girl.

I have a feeling that she putt that house on fire. isn't 50 suppose to start his movie shut as soon as he come back from tore.


(I growed up in a very dangerous hood, and what maid it so tough was that you could not tell who is who until it is to late. So to stay safe you had to look through the person and see who is hiding underneath the skin. Because of that I can tell that She is the crazy one, not 50.)

HE KNEW SHE WAS A CHICKEN HEAD WHEN HE MET HER, THAT'S PART OF THE REASON HE WAS WITH HER. SHE'S TALKIN ABOUT IF HE CAN'T HAVE ME NOBODY CAN, COME ON HE'S KNOCKIN OFF CIARA RIGHT NOW AND SHE LOOKS TEN TIMES BETTER THAN HER. I WILL SAY IF HE DID KICK HER OUT WITH HIS SON THAT'S WRONG, BUT I'M SURE WITH THE CHILD SUPPORT SHE'S GETTING, SHE WOULD'NT BE HOMELESS. IF SHE HAD ANY SENSE SHE SHOULD HAVE AGREED TO PAY HIM RENT...IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S COMING FROM HER POCKET IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE GIVING HIM HIS OWN MONEY BACK-SHE'S STILL LIVING THERE FOR FREE. LIKE I SAID CHICKEN HEAD
