50 Cent has hinted there is no chance of a reconciliation with his estranged son Marquise Jackson, after stating that he ‘used to’ love his eldest child.
The pair’s relationship began to deteriorate in 2008 when 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, split from Marquise’s mother Shaniqua Tompkins.
Since then, the father and son have traded nasty insults publicly including 50 Cent saying on social media that he wouldn’t care if Marquise was ‘hit by a bus’. He’s also said that he would choose rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine over his own son Marquise.
He’s now described their bitter fallout as a ‘sad situation’ and claims to have paid over $1.36 million (£1 million) in child support for Marquise, who is now aged 23.
‘When you pray for success, you don’t necessarily pray for the things that come with it,’ Fiddy told Van Lathan during an Instagram live this week.
‘It’s no such thing as success without jealousy, without envy or entitlement… His mum developed an entitlement that cannot be met, filtering that energy through his actual personal interests…’
50 continued: ‘So, while being a privileged child, he feels deprived. You had everything I didn’t have.’
When asked if he ‘still loves’ his eldest son, 50 admitted: ‘I used to.
‘A complicated question would say how long can you love someone who doesn’t love you back?’
He added: ‘I used to blame his mum but now I can see the real problem it’s him. I’ve gone places where he was at and he left.’
On a more poignant note, the Power producer admitted: ‘I didn’t think that success would cost me my firstborn, but it’s the situation it is.
‘My grandfather used to say, “If it rattles like a snake and slithers like a snake, is it a snake or do you need to be bit?” What he’s saying is, every time you see the boy he show up with somebody you got a problem with. What does that tell you?’
In 2018, 50 Cent received backlash when he wrote in a social media post: ‘If both these little n***s got hit by a bus, I wouldn’t have a bad day.’
