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
EXCLUSIVE

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.

I'm sorry but I'm not buying it from Fiddy!!! You're too rich to not know or be able to find out when or where your son's graduation was. You got people that'll do the work for you........How about this??...Call the kid directly...obviously he was looking for him. We have to do better!!!

It's simple really: you talk to your son and tell him you want to go to his graduation. You ask your son when/where the ceremony is. You call the school to secure a pair of tickets (don't be greedy and ask for special treatment or 20 tickets). You show up early with balloons and take him out to lunch. Fake nice with the rest of the family for your kid's big day - he earned it. The end!

Is this kid crazy? Why would he expect 50 to show up if he didn't give him a ticket? Most schools will give you two tickets and you pay for anymore after that, so if he gave one to him mom and one to his sister and didn't buy a 3rd, why in the world would 50 show up? Additionally, did he tell 50 when and where the graduation would be? Does he believe 50 is psychic? Of course, if he gave him a ticket, that information would be on it. I call shena****ns and BS on the kid's sob story!!
