The relationship between Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his teenage son, Marquise Jackson, has been deteriorating for quite some time now. And interestingly, both parents blame each other for the demise of that relationship. As you may recall, last winter Marquise’s mother, Shaniqua Thompkins, claimed that 50 abandonned Marquise shortly after his other son, Sire, was born. During a recent interview with Philly’s Hot 107.9, 50 insisted that Shaniqua has turned Marquise against him.
“He’s completely embraced his mom’s perspective on me. It’s apart of that entitlement that you said it builds,” 50 reasoned.
He also credited the fractured relationship to Shaniqua’s parenting style.
“Kids are never equal to parents. So if your mom conditions the child to feel like you should come to them on their terms and everything else that has to be done.”
Despite being Marquise’s primary provider, 50 claims that Shaniqua has been intentionally seeking to sabotage their relationship.
“Everything in his life, I have provided for him regardless of if I’m there or not,” he explained. “She hasn’t worked since 2000 so tell me how you do that as a single mom. You being a working mom while being a single mom is being a provider in a different way. Her being in the actual home since 2000 living off of what I provide for him is enough for her not to go to actual work so it already takes that pressure off in that way but it’s still not quite enough.”
“She still would feel like destroying the actual relationship is her way of getting back,” he continued. “She was getting a half a million dollars a year.”
As for Shaniqua’s dating life…
“I feel like women require maintenance. If that mental maintenance is actually taken care of, you can have a woman under any circumstance. You can put her in a room full of billionaires and she’ll be there until she looks down on her watch and says ‘We got to go he might be hungry.’ In her case, she hasn’t found anyone that’s able to do the maintenance required on her.”
