Rap mogul 50 Cent is expected to ask a judge today (April 3) to give his ex-girlfriend and their kid the boot from his Long Island house.
Fif wants his child's mother Shaniqua Tompkins and the couple's 10-year-old son, Marquise Jackson, forced out of the home he owns in Long Island, New York, according to Radar.
The rapper (born Curtis Jackson) and his ex went at it in court for a year after Fif filed to create an official child support arrangement because Tompkins financial demands were getting out of hand. In April, a judge awarded Tompkins $25,000 a month ($10,000 a month in child support and $15,000 for expenses), approximately half of the $50,000 a month she'd requested, while the court reviewed expenses for her and 50's son. But the suit ended with 50 laughing all the way to the bank when a judge significantly cut Tompkins checks to $6,700 in February.
Tompkins and Marquis, along with another daughter of Tompkins belonging to a different man, were allowed to remain in 50's house under the condition that Tompkins use some of the money to find new residency.
She hasn't and Fif reportedly doesn't believe she even tried.
Tompkins' lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, said he plans to argue today that an eviction is impossible because his client isn't technically a tenant. She's never had a lease agreement or paid any rent there. In addition, both her children attend school in the upscale district in which the home is located.
On top of that, Tompkins contends the house was bought for her anyway, Fif just changed his mind about putting it in her name right before closing. Earlier claims from both sides said the place was bought so Marquise would have access to quality schooling. No word where Tompkins and her children would go if she were evicted.
On Wednesday, a judge denied a motion for an emergency stay of today's hearing, which may have been requested to allow Tompkins lawyers to prepare a counter suit pertaining to the ownership issues. According to Radar, the denial of this request may mean that the judge didn't feel the eviction and ownership issues were related.
A publicist for 50 had no comment.
