50 Cent’s Life Going Up In Flames

May 30th, 2008 // 9 Comments

Holy crap is the drama getting good around 50 Cent! The Long Island home from which he has been trying to evict his ex Shaniqua (people are actually named that?) Tompkins from mysteriously burned down this morning. Holy shite. The fire, which authorities have reportedly said was no accident, comes on the heels of a very public dust-up in an attorney’s office that then spilled out into the street between 50, his entourage, Shaniqua and lawyers on Monday afternoon.

Six people were taken from the home and treated for smoke inhalation, including Tompkins, and their 10-year-old son Marquise. All have reportedly been released. A source says that 50 isn’t a suspect in the fire at this time. But has released a statement via his rep.

“Informed this morning while filming a new motion picture on location in Louisiana, Curtis Jackson expressed deep concern over this fire at his property. He is extremely thankful that everyone including his son, Marquise, escaped the burning house safely. He is confident that authorities will be conducting a thorough investigation of the incident and is eager to review their findings.”

Okey dokey, Smokey. Shaniqua Tompkins was already ordered by the courts to vacate the house by the end of the school year. 50 Cent had ordered her to begin paying $4,500 in monthly rent. A deposition on Monday afternoon turned ugly when a member of 50′s entourage reportedly “trashed” Tompkins’ lawyer’s office. The crazies involved too it to the street, and 50 allegedly had to be held back from attacking Shaniqua. TMZ has footage of the incident.

Fitty bought the house for 4.2 million in January of 2007. And that’s all I’m gonna say because the story kinda speaks for itself. Some shady shit is going down.

    Hell heth no fury as a woman scorned.

    It’s so obvious she burned down Fifty’s home after losing the battle. They should take her child away for endangering him!

    What is wrong with these people??? They get in a fight and she (allegedly) BURNS THE HOUSE DOWN????? UGH! If that’s her mentality, she ought to be locked up.

  5. woman scorned? are you just being sarcastic or do you actually think she’d set the house on fire, then decide to go take a nap upstairs?

    Am I missing something? Why is automatically her fault? Isn’t he a thug-and everyone he hangs out with? I blame his greedy ass.

    No I wasn’t being sarcastic. She was ordered to vacate the house. So why would Fiddy burn down his 4.5 million dollar house?
