50 Cent’s Baby Mama Did Not Invite Him To His Son’s High School Graduation

By: Val Powell - May 21, 2014

There have been rumors floating around that rapper 50 Cent abandoned his son during his high school graduation. In a statement released by his PR people, however, 50 Cent said that the mother of his son did not let him know when the graduation would take place.

Sources close to the rapper told TMZ that 50 Cent was disappointed and hurt when he saw pictures of his son, Marquise Jackson, on Facebook wearing his graduation robes and hugging his mother.

His son also wrote “Yea I broke down. I was really excited to see my pops at my graduation but he never showed up. smh. My sister and mama is always there for me just know that you wasn’t. I did it without you.”

Marquise graduated from a private school located in Atlanta. Reports say that at the time of his son’s graduation, 50 Cent was in Budapest.

The rapper recently appeared on BET’s 106 & Park to promote his fifth album entitled “Animal Ambition.” During his appearance, he took time to answer questions about missing his son’s graduation. “I haven’t received an invitation. When he graduated I was in Budapest on a movie with Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Jason Statham.”

He continued to say that the reason why his personal life is out in the open is because Marquise’s mother went to TMZ. “I wish she’d find someone so she could leave me alone,” he said.

50 Cent, born Curtis James Jackson III, is a father of two. He has a younger son from a different relationship. The 38-year-old rapper blames the mother of Marquis, Shaniqua Tompkins, for his strained relationship with his eldest son.

In an interview with MTV last year, the rapper said that his son has a fear for him. “Cause it’s like, his mother will traditionally say, ‘You wait ‘til your father finds out’,” he said. He also talked about being a strict father, as he always reminds Marquise to take care of his mother and not give her headaches.

    Because he’s too stupid to search the kid’s school website and find out when the graduation is?

    He did not get an invite!!!! How absurd your excuse Mr. Jackson!!!
    Forget about communication with his baby’s mother.

    Mr. Jackson AKA 50 cent is savvy enough “man” to setup notification regarding
    his son and his son’s actives.

    Mr. Jackson AKA 50 should have invited yourself to your son’s graduation!

    NOW – As far as your son’s grammar in his tweets. I hope his son has
    plans for continuing education.

    Wow. If he had a real relationship with his son, he would’ve known. During the times of social media and texting. Just hard to excuse. But who knows whats really going on at both places.

    I don’t usually comment on things like this…but I agree with everyone else that said why the heck didn’t he go to the school’s website or call the school to find out the date and location of the graduation. That is some bull$hit 50 Cent!!!!

    I did the same thing to my son’s donator he’s a real ass though. So he didn’t deserve to come. Kids know who has their backs. Mommas are the mother and fathers to some.
