Did 50 Cent really try to burn down the house where Marquise - his 11-year-old son, resided? Did Marquise's mom kidnap him and hold him against 50's will?
These questions remain very much unclear.
What's perfectly clear, though, is that the rapper purchased the rights to his baby mama's life story. You know, so Shaniqua Tompkins, mother of Marquise, can't publish any tell-all books about him in the future.
50 Cent has confirmed this, addressing it in a statement: “I bought the rights to her life story so she couldn’t write a book. I seen her being ridiculous; I knew her capabilities of going in that direction, so I bought the rights.”
Don't ask us how one goes about purchasing the rights to a person’s life story ... especially of someone most people don’t know, let alone care about at all.
We only see one problem with 50's masterminding:
This does stop her from writing a fictional, O.J. Simpson-like account of how some made-up rapper named "49 Cent" burned down the house of "Taniqua Shompkins" on Long Island, with her inside. Think about it.
Of course, that assumes Shaniqua Tompkins is even literate. Never mind.
