Today,Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson will ask that a judge evict his ex-girlfriend/baby mama, Shaniqua Tompkins, and the couple's 10-year-old son, Marquise Jackson, from the rapper's property in Long Island, New York.
In February a judge cut back his baby mamas' monthly support checks from $25,000 to $6,700 (her fault, mostly for being greedy). Baby mama and Marquis were allowed to remain in Jackson's home on condition that the money be used in part to find a new residence. Fiddy says they didn't even try and that baby mama is taking advantage of the situation, as the house is in Jackson's name and all bills are forwarded to one of his faceless accountants in Hollywood.
Paul Catsandonis, baby mamas' lawyer, plans to argue today that an eviction is impossible given that baby mama is not by definition a tenant. Her residency has always been without a lease agreement, and her lawyer said that since she dont pay rent, she cannot be subject to eviction. And besides, her baby's are in school in the neighborhood (a daughter from another man also lives with them).
But baby mama doesn't stop there.
Though the house officially belongs to Jackson, she claims it was initially promised to her and that Fiddy reneged just prior to closing the sale on the property. Early claims from both sides were that the house was bought so Marquise would have access to quality schooling, but it is unclear where she'd take her son if she got the boot because she hasn't even started looking for a place to stay. Fair to say, though, that they wouldn't be able to financially remain in their current tony district because that man that lives there with her is broke as hell.
Wednesday afternoon a judge denied a motion for an emergency stay of today's hearing. It's probably safe to assume baby mamas lawyers wanted time to whip up a counter-suit over the home's ownership. The fact that the judge didn't grant the delay probably says he didn't feel the eviction and ownership were related. Yet.
A publicist for Fiddy refused comment on the ongoing legal matter....check back later to see what happens:)
