Rappers’ lives being played out in the media is nothing new. However, dragging the children into then actual mudslinging is becoming part of the trend. Fans have long known Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hasn’t had the greatest relationship with his oldest son Marquis. Marquis recently aired his father out on social media saying 50 didn’t attend his high school graduation. 50 Cent responded to the matter while on BET’s “106 & Park.”
According to the rapper/actor, the reason he didn’t attend his son’s graduation is because he never received an invitation. While 50 did say he wasn’t invited and therefore was in Budapest shooting a film, he was also quick to tell the audience that he really didn’t need to give anyone outside of the involved parties an explanation about anything.
“I don’t need an explanation. I don’t really. I think that my personal life, portions of it are actually supposed to be personal and my actual life as an entertainer is a whole ‘nother life. My son, I hadn’t received an invitation to it and when he graduated, I was in Budapest [doing a movie]. I think at some points – the reason why it comes out is because his mom’s going to TMZ. Like, that relationship – I wish she’d find someone so she would leave me alone,” 50 Cent told hosts Bow Wow and Keisha Chante.
When first addressing his relationship with his children, 50 Cent said, “My relationship with my oldest son is actually dictated by his mom and because his mother has developed a negative energy towards me – we go from being friends because we’re adults and if time permits it, there’s some type of intimacy and it grows stronger, that relationship. And then most people in the process gets engaged and married and when they get divorced, sometimes they’re not even friends anymore because one person over-invested, emotionally, and can’t let go and it develops into hate.”
