50 Cent Responds To His Son Marquise's 'Sit-Down' Request Amid Child Support Spat
It probably wasn't the answer Marquise was looking for.
50 Cent has responded to his son Marquise’s offer to have a “sit-down” to resolve their long-standing issues, but it most likely wasn’t the answer the younger Jackson was looking for.
Earlier this month, Marquise told TMZ he was open to having a meeting with his estranged father in hopes of “understand[ing] each other a little bit better” and “restor[ing] the situation.”

50 Cent then pointed out that he was initially paying Marquise’s mother, his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins, $500,000 a year, yet she still demanded more. That’s when 50 took the matter to court and was ordered to pay just $6,700-a-month (almost $81,000-a-year) in child support.
