Shaniqua Tompkins and 50 Cent
Investigators from the Suffolk County arson squad were called to the multi-million dollar Long Island home of rapper 50 Cent, after a suspicious fire broke out, sending six people to the hospital for smoke inhalation, including his ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their 10-year-old son Marquis.
The blaze occurred just days after a heated confrontation inside the woman’s attorney’s office over the home. 50 Cent does not live in the home and apparently wasn’t there at the time.
50 Cent, who’s real name is Curtis Jackson, is being sued by Tompkins, who claims the rapper promised her the $2.5 million home, but now wants to evict her and their son.
Tompkins’ lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, said 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” on Monday in his Manhattan office while taking a deposition for the lawsuit.
An off-duty police officer helped rescue six people from the deck of the home. All six were treated and released from the hospital.
