50 Cent

I Didn't Blow Off My Son's Graduation ...

I Wasn't Invited

5/19/2014 9:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0519-marquise-jackson-facebook-post-0150 Cent didn't abandon his son on high school graduation day -- despite an emotional Facebook post from the kid -- instead 50 claims he was intentionally blocked from attending by his son's mother ... at least that's what 50 is telling friends.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, Fiddy is extremely hurt and upset by the photo his son Marquise Jackson posted on Facebook Sunday crying in his cap and gown while hugging his mother.

Marquise wrote, "Yea I broke down. I was really excited to see my pops at my graduation but he never showed up smh. My sister and mama is always there for me just know that you wasn't. I did it without you."

But 50 disagrees ... telling friends he was never told when or where the graduation ceremony was, or he would have been there. FYI, the ceremony was at Marquise's private school in ATL (the same school 50 reportedly foots the bills for).

We're told 50 spent last weekend in NYC for a charity event.

Guess calling the school and getting the day and time of the graduation was out of the question, huh. 50 should be embarrassed to say something so stupid.

He wasn't invited. Stop trying to make it like he don't care about you. Stop thinking your mom is right 100% of the time and grow the hell up.

All schools have online calendars, shame on Fiddy for not looking himself. Typical of an absentee father thinks money will solve actually being present for important milestones in a child's life. Fiddy you ****ed up!

Never told?. Wow, well if you were an active part of your sons life you wouldn't have to be told ,you would already know. Stop looking for sympathy that young man did not ask to come into this world you guys(parents) chose for him. I so sick of 50 making excuses and blaming son for his lack of involvement.

Most outdoor graduations don't require an invite. His son's mother can say that she didn't want him there all she wanted but if 50 wanted to be there, he would've been
