Whatever it is, 50 Cent should have attended his son’s graduation—that is something a child will never forgot.
Last Friday, 50 Cent’s baby’s mother-Shaniqua Tompkins decided to grant her first radio interview in response 50′s claims that she didn’t invite him to his son’s graduation.
During the interview, she also talked about how 50 Cent physically abused her in front of her children, talked about whether or not 50 Cents pays her $20,000 a month, mentioned that 50 Cent’s abandonment issues from childhood is the reason why the music star is bitter towards her and other things…
Check out the excepts from the interview…
On 50 Cent missing his son’s graduation because she didn’t invite him:
I didn’t know a parent needs an invitation to a graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children, depending on the state, graduate May, June-ish. You’re busy, but that’s why you have assistants. The assistants can call the school and you can fly on your private jet with your big gold chain.
He’s privy to the same information that I’m privy to as a parent. You can call the school or have your assistant call. I’m not being condescending. It was no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. People that I did invite, they stood on the side to watch the graduation. You could’ve been there. That’s your choice. And being that you said you paid tuition — which he doesn’t — you should’ve had a first class ticket then. You paid tuition, right? But he doesn’t. He pays child support. He doesn’t pay tuition. He promised me, but then he changed his mind. Like, I told him I wanted Marquise to change schools because I felt like the school he was going to was getting a little rough.
How Marquise feels about his father not being at the graduation:
We haven’t discussed it yet, but on a day to day… I broke up with his dad when Marquise was 10 1/2. So he’s been with his dad from birth till then. He loves his dad. He misses his dad. So of course it hurts. He used to cry about it. He used to really get down in his spirit. But I think when a person does stupid sh-t all the time, it starts to lose its impact. [50’s] just being  and I think Marquise feels a little sorry for him.
I don’t even get six figures. I’ll put it this way. He pays more in his light bill in Connecticut than he pays me in child support.
The lawyers are involved. That’s number one. It goes according to lifestyle. Regardless of the fact that I was with him, Marquise was accustomed to a certain lifestyle. I lived in a $1.6 million house in New York, I drove a Range Rover, I had a BMW, my allowance was $20,000 a month. I didn’t pay for any bills. I didn’t pay for travel. So he’s supposed to live that lifestyle to a certain extent. Everything he promised in court, ‘I’m going to take him to basketball games! I’m going to take him on vacations!’ He hasn’t done any of that. He hasn’t done any of it.
On 50 claiming she hasn’t worked since the year 2000:
I had a job with TLC network and  came and stopped that. I had a deal with a reality show. The show was canceled but everyone got paid their full contract but me. So you say, ‘Get a job’ but I had one. TLC sent me a 1099. I filed taxes. I had one.
 filed his first tax return at 30 [years old]. I was working, paying for studio time, DATs, reels, incorporating companies. Rotten Apples Records which was his first corporation. He doesn’t owe me anything. He did make that promise that he’ll take care of me for the rest of my life. I knew when I left that my lifestyle was going to change. I don’t think my son’s lifestyle was going to change.
On people saying she’s bitter:
We all want the finer things in life, but I left . I knew when I left him that I was leaving a lifestyle. It’s not like he left me, I left him.
Why she ignores his calls now:
I spoke with him and we spoke for a couple of hours on the phone [in September]. And when you feel like you can’t get through to a person…I know how to set boundaries. I’m not going to waste my time. He’s always going in on what happened in the relationship. Marquise is never the main focus. It’s, ‘what you did to me, you left me, you did this, you did that.’ He never takes responsibility for his actions.
On his claims she has a direct line to TMZ:
TMZ called me and I don’t know how they got my number. I spoke with TMZ once because he went on Kelly and Michael saying that, ‘My son. He’s getting ready to turn 17 and we have this great relationship and his friends love me.’ And I’m like wait a minute, you haven’t seen your son in almost two years. This month makes two years. He hasn’t seen his son since May 2012. He hasn’t spoken to Marquise since the text messages where he told him ‘F-U. I have another child. Lose my number.’ Marquise hasn’t spoken to him since.
