50 Cent's Baby Mama #1

He Hasn't Seen His Teenage Son in 2 Years

1/9/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0108-50-cent-son-getty-instagram50 Cent's teenage son feels like he's been replaced by the rapper's new baby -- saying he hasn't seen his dad in nearly two years ... in fact, he didn't even know he had a half-brother until TMZ broke the story.

Marquise Jackson's mother Shaniqua Tompkins tells TMZ, the last time 50 Cent saw 17-year-old Marquise was May 2012, several months before 50's second child Sire Jackson was born.

We're told Fiddy hasn't even spoken to Marquise since the two had a very public falling out in January 2013 over text messages.

The fight stemmed from a botched visitation attempt -- 50 claimed he showed up to Marquise's house in Atlanta to visit, but Marquise refused to answer the door, and the texts that followed were brutal ... including messages like, "F**k you stop texting me" and "I don't have a son anymore."

Now Marquise feels abandoned ... because 50 is showering Sire with attention and hasn't bothered to reach out to Marquise.

As for 50, his rep tells TMZ, "50 is saddened by the attention-seeking tactics of his son's mother.  He remains a proud and supportive father and feels blessed to have two sons."  A source connected to 50 says the woman hasn't worked since 2002 and this is ultimately a money grab.

As we reported, 50 recently posted doting photos of Sire on Instagram, but quickly removed them out of concern for Sire's safety.

You cant deny this is a black people issue! Look how many stories after stories you have of rappers and athletes fathering kids left and right who they are barely going to see but will fight to death not to pay alot of child support. I see it everyday at work too lines of black females asking for handouts because dad isn't around that's of corse if they know who dad is.

Punishing your child by no visits in years in inappropriate, especially if it is because of text messages and the other parent. It takes twice as long to mend that fence and ALL responsibility to fix it rides on Dad. It's your kid, BE A MAN AND LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

Why is this even in the news? This is personal family stuff involving a minor... a non-celebrity minor.

Obviously he feels the relationship with his son is irreparable and he mother has had 17 years to add to the venom into that kid's head.

The father has one more year of his financial obligation and then he is done with both of them. The is not entailed to one more cent including inheritance money. He should reconsider his lousy attitude and learn to play nice. Of course this may not happen until he gains some distance from the poison giver.

One ways to do this is by enrolling in college 3000 miles away. He needs to show good faith by getting student loans then convincing his father to help finance his education. He should be eligible for loans because the dad is not legally obligated to give him one more cent especially the way things are. Did the mother save any of that child support money to at least get him started?

The father should do his part and at least pay the school directly, meaning, the kid must enroll, pass all his classes, and the school has to bill the dad directly. He gets 4 years to finish school.

He can do that much for a young man coming across as an ingrate. But who knows how the mother has worked him over.

This kid needs a wake up call, as in, daddy is not playing and is no longer legally responsible for him once 18.

This is what happens when the father is excluded from the child's life by the mother and the court system. The father of course carries some culpability.

Bottom line is for men and women to carefully consider who they procreate with. It's not worth the aggravation.

Curtis should be starting his family life about now. Instead, he brings sad baggage.

There is nothing shocking happening here. This is what happens when women looking for a payday or marriage have a child to get what they want. Since there's no report of 50 not paying his child support, I suppose Shaniqua has let Marquise know that he's a year or less away from being useful to her since he'll be 18 soon. Poor kids. Has a mother who had him as a meal ticket and, based on what's going on, a father who didn't want him or don't want to be around someone who's been poisoned against him. Now, he has to scramble to get some sort of working relationship with his father as the money will stop coming to him and his mother soon.

What does money have to do with raising your child and being there both financially ,physically, and emotionally. If his sons mother was so terrible why didn't he fight for custody? Everyone wants to make excuses for fathers or absent mothers??? You bring a child into this world...they are your responsibility PERIOD!! Poor kid....just a rich dead beat!!!!

She could have put him on blast when he hadn't seen his kid in a year. Every baby mama has some type of ill feelings when the father of their child goes and has a kid with someone else, especially when he is a proud dad of a kid he is showing off. If she was trying to look out for her son, she would have gone to court. This whole thing is motivated by jealousy. It is no coincidence this story comes out a day after he posted pics on instagram of his new son.

I was doing the count down until she starting whining again after 50 showed his new son. She is pissed because her son is now no longer the heir to 50 money. lol These scorn women spend the majority of their time plotting how to get back at their kids father. I'm sorry if i was a man who had to be around a whining scorned female in order to see my child, I would have it that she is not any where near when i visit my child. Just plain bitterness. Move on! I wonder if she got a job yet.
