5O Cent Goes to Court to Evict his Ex-girlfriend and their 10 yr Old Son

Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson has ask that a judge evict his ex-girlfriend, 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 hacked Tomkins' monthly support checks from $25,000 to $6,700 (her fault, mostly). Tompkins 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 Tompkins is taking advantage of the situation (gentlemen callers, perhaps?), as the house is in Jackson's name and all bills are presumably forwarded to one of his faceless accountants in Hollywood.

Though the house officially belongs to Jackson, Tompkins claims it was initially promised to her (some of Jackson's supporters seem to agree) 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. Fair to say, though, that they wouldn't be able to remain in their current tony district.

Wednesday afternoon a judge denied a motion for an emergency stay of today's hearing. It's probably safe to assume Tompkins' 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 Jackson refused comment on the ongoing legal matter.
