The recent public spotlight on 50 Cent’s strained relationship with his oldest son, Marquise Jackson, generated a lot of headlines. The rapper has constantly received criticism from his son on social media for not paying child support. Now, 50 Cent has responded to his estranged son Marquise after he offered him money to spend time with him.
The rapper’s estranged eldest son sarcastically proposed last week to pay 50 Cent $6,700 to spend a day with him as a father and son. It came after the 25-year-old raised eyebrows by claiming the $6,700-a-month child support 50 Cent used to provide for him was not enough to sustain his New York City lifestyle. Marquise wrote on Instagram under a photo of him sat next to a series of $100 bills spelling out the word “entitled.”
“Since y’all think $6,700 is sooo much money someone tell my pops I will pay him $6,700 for just 24hr of his time so we can do everything I ever wanted to do with him as a kid,”
Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Detroit drug lord Big Meech and the star of 50 Cent’s BMF series, left a comment on Marquise’s post that read, “You Stupid @199viq I’ll Take 5 Over There Myself I Might Even Play Some Games With You.” On Tuesday (October 11), 50 Cent finally addressed the saga himself by sharing Lil Meech’s response on his own Instagram post.
The all-time businessman, 50 used social media to draw attention away from his expanding television empire by posting the teaser for his new BMF (Black Mafia Family) docuseries, which will broadcast on STARZ later this month. The G-Unit boss wrote in his caption,
“[grinning squinting face] @lilmeechbmf & @michaelraineyjr know what’s up stupid! BLOWING MONEY FAST 10.23.22 it’s lit ? @bransoncognac @lecheminduroi GLG?GreenLightGang.”
Marquise Jackson, whose mother is 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins, discussed his father’s child support payments during an Instagram Live conversation with entrepreneur and former rapper Choke No Joke. He said, “$6,700 a month in the state of New York City. You do the math.” Meanwhile, 50 Cent and Marquise Jackson have been at odds for years. We’ll have to wait and see what they do next.
