50's Home Burns Down: Lil' 50 Was Home At The Time (Update)

50 Cent's $2.4 million Long Island home burned down about 5 a.m. this morning. His son Marquise, baby mama Shaniqua Tompkins, and her other child were in the home with three adults at the time.

Luckily no one was seriously injured as they were all rushed to Huntington Hospital and treated for small injuries and smoke inhalation.

Eye witness Frank Hoyte says Shaniqua was all right, but visibly angry. Well hell who wouldn't be if a 'suspicious' fire broke out and you and your kids were in the house asleep?

The blaze was extinguished within an hour, but caused an eye injury to a firefighter. The Suffolk County arson squad were called to investigate beceause the fire seemed suspect:

"The rapid movement of the fire. The volume of the fire. It was engulfed. The home was totally gutted."

This is the same house Tompkins battled 50 for in a legal suit earlier this year. She claims he promised she could have the house over ten years ago, but after their breakup planned to either evict her from the home or make her pay market rent of about $5,400 a month. Daaaaaaang!

50 Cent’s people were on it and released a public statement immediately after finding out about the fire:

"Informed this morning while filming a new motion picture on location in Louisiana, Curtis Jackson expressed deep concern over this fire at his property. He is extremely thankful that everyone including his son, Marquise, escaped the burning house safely. He is confident that authorities will be conducting a thorough investigation of the incident and is eager to review their findings."


**Update**: A judge Tuesday ordered 50 Cent to hold on to the property where a $2.4 million house at the center of a bitter dispute with his ex-girlfriend burned to the ground last month.

State Supreme Court Justice Carol Edmead also ordered the rapper (real name: Curtis Jackson) to put any insurance proceeds he might receive into a trust account pending the outcome of the $50 million lawsuit filed against him earlier this year by Shaniqua Tompkins.

Tompkins' lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, requested the orders so his client can have access to some of 50 Cent's assets if she wins a judgment. He said 50 Cent, who was not present in court, agreed years ago to give Tompkins half of his earnings for life.

50% of his earnings for life!? And they're not even married?

This broad is really forcing it.



  1. wow, aint this some shit, i dont think he did it... too crazy even for him

  2. Naw, I don't think he would do something like this with his - especially not with his son in the house.

  3. I'll cosign that...deep down I want to believe that he wouldn't be like that...but dude's a cold piece a work! lol

    I wanna get the numbers for her lawyers though...girl gotta have them on speed dial, ya hear me! lmao

  4. I don't think Fifty did it. And I think his ex is a little too greedy. I mean he has to take care of the child not her.

  5. wow! cool stuffs you got here... what a waste....such a very expensive property turning to ash? yet life is still the most valuable...it's good to know no one died.

  6. Thanks Blog Learner. I'm glad no one died either, this is a serious situation and I think his son's mother is going about this the wrong way. Accusing her son's father of setting the house on fire with peole in it is reckless and it may bite her in the you know what later.

  7. That is really strange to me. You never know what is going on. 50% pf his earnings for life is a bit much since they were not married. Will check out your myspace too!

  8. Something doesn't add up here. I just hope the fire wasn't intentional.

    As far as the mother is concerned, I smell greed. Sad.
