50 Cent’s ex says house fire was murder attempt

May 30th, 2008 // 60 Comments

A house that’s in the center of a court battle between 50 Cent and Shaniqua Tompkins, the mother of his son Marquise, suspiciously went up in flames early this morning. Shaniqua is saying the fire was attempted murder and she distinctly heard someone in the house before the fire, according to TMZ:

The lawyer for 50 Cent’s baby mama, Shaniqua Tompkins, tells TMZ that she heard “someone” come into the house this morning at 4 AM, shortly before the fire broke out around a hour later.
Paul Catsandonis, Shaniqua’s lawyer, tells us that his client is “traumatized” by the fire and that the kids are similarly in total shock. Six people, including Tompkins and their 10-year-old son Marquise, were in the house. They all were transported to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.

The house was allegedly promised to Shaniqua by 50 until he decided to put her and Marquise on the street. The AP reports:

Tompkins filed a lawsuit against 50 earlier this year claiming he had promised her a house more than a decade ago, but that since their breakup, he now wants to evict her and their 10-year-old son from the home.
Tompkins’ lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that the dispute over the house had become “extremely, extremely contentious” in recent days. Although he declined to be specific, he said there was an “extremely dangerous incident” Monday in his Manhattan office while taking a deposition for the lawsuit.

And by “extremely dangerous incident,” Shaniqua’s lawyer meant 50 yelled “Bitch, I’ll burn that house down with you in it at exactly 4 A.M. Friday May 30, 2008. But first, you’ll hear someone break in and shit and you’ll be all, ‘Aw no, what’s happenin’?’ And it’ll be me burning down this particular house in the middle of our highly publicized court battle. But ain’t no one’s gonna know it was me! Ha! In da house. 50 out. The fucks’ the elevator? I hate stairs!”

    The sad part in all of this is the poor 10-year-old boy. What did he do to deserve being caught in the middle of this fight between 2 of the most degenerate parents on the planet? Poor kid can’t even play in a sandbox, because cats keep trying to cover him up.

  14. Cokeasian

    Wait. His son’s name is MARQUISE?

    That’s the female equivalent of marquis. It would be like calling your son “Baroness” or “Lady”.

    Poor little bugger.

  15. cate

    A black man committing a crime?
    psshhhh… yeah right.

    “Shaniqua” and “Marquise”…lmao…after so many years, they’re still good for one thing: entertainment.

    A Marquise is also a tiny device protecting a door against the rain, usually made of glass and iron. It is also a big chair. And a type of ring, and a dessert, and a cocktail.
    None of these are a suitable name for a boy.

    In all fairness, the little boy does know who his father is, so that’s a big step up for all of them. What’s the definition of “confusion”? — Father’s Day in Harlem.

    “A steoreotypical name for young women living in the hood or ghetto.The common Shaniqua has a weave that is so cheap it looks like plastic,or very long thick braids.She wear extremely tight and short clothing topped of with ridiculously long heels.
    Other attributes include:long nails,husky/shrill iritating voice,4 children with different fathers.
    Shaniqua:Yo giiiiirl i gots tah go down tah them welfare offices,my check aint come in this month!uh-huh and you know my babby daddy be trippin”
    “The second most horrific sounding nickname for the human female’s genitals(after cunt). So much so that it can only be properly applied when descibing genitals that are presumed or understood to be filthy or disgusting. ”
    “Yo Jeff, I lost my arm in your Grandma’s marquise last night!”

    Lots of good, funny and obedient racist in here. The Jews have your asses on fire helping to destroy your economy and fighting wars for them. Who’s the real joke? *kicked back enjoying the fireworks*

  25. norton

    @23… now THAT was funny….

  26. Wendy

    #24- For fuck’s sake, that was lame. Try again, and try to work at least a little bit of logic into it (for example, it’s not exactly rich white folks who are fighting and getting maimed and killed in Iraq and Afghanistan…)

  27. Stoney

    @26 Lame but true *still kicked back enjoying the fireworks*

    @29 that works

  31. Scott

    As long as it’s a lot of black soldiers getting killed, I don’t care who’s controlling the wars.

  32. Stoney

    @31 wow! a genius. is that ham i smell burning. *turns up nose at the stintch of burning ass*

  33. Scott

    Quick, Mrs. Stoney, move! You’re sitting on the barbecue grill!

  34. Stoney

    Trying to burn your ex wife and son alive, now thats gangsta my friend! 50′s doing it hard out here on the streets.

    So I predict 50 saying he had nothing to do with it and then coming out with a Get Richy or die trying 2 with this particular scene in it of him killing his wife and kid and it going wrong or it’ll be in a new track on 50′s next album or video game. Actually video game would be better, you could have 50 running around the city trying to sell enough crack to get the money to buy the gasoline to burn his momma’s house down with his kid in it. Now if that doesn’t scream PS3 and Xbox 360, I don’t know what does!

    Peace out homedogs! Or however a wanna be suburban gangsta kid would say it.

  37. M-m-m-m-moeteeesuh

    Aww dawg, she lyin’ n shit yo . If somebuddy breaked in, whys dint she call the po-po ?

  38. Kim Lard-ass-ian

    These people are animals, always were and always will be. They cant help it. Oh and 18…im going to quote that definition!

  41. Igottabemeeee

    #36 – You have a brilliant marketing mind. I can see the video game now, it’ll sell millions.

  42. Thug Life Gangsta YO

    When I heard 50 made over a hundred million off his Vitamin water deal, I thought, this guy’s much smarter than I thought. If he sacrificed all that to play arsonist or hire one, he better hope it can’t be tracked to him, because that is fine and jail time. This guy thinks his career is a sure thing, too, but he’s just about at game over point. Oh well, emotions will destroy you. Better rise above.

  44. fukyah

    Go 50 Goo kill that bitch.

  45. bootlips

    Even rich neegers act like monkeys. it’s no wonder why they never invented anything worthwhile.

    Thompkins should stick to hiring lawyers with 50′s money instead of hiring her hangers-on to act as goons and ordering them to attack 50 in her lawyer’s office. And how is it that Thompkins aunt and 3 kids, and her new boyfriend and his 2 kids are all living off of money intended for 50′s child?

  49. Worried 4 her

    She is lucky he did not have her tied to her bed….
