50 Cent's Wins Eviction Case Against Ex-Girlfriend

written by Thomas A. Harden
Friday - April 4, 2008

Hip-Hop mogul 50 Cent emerged victorious yesterday (April 3) in the eviction trial of his ex-girlfriend and their son from his Long Island house.

"Today's a good day, I'm a winner," the G-Unit General rejoiced after hearing the verdict. "I always win. The house is mine. She just wants to drag the situation out as long as possible. I think she just wants to see me dragging me back and fourth to court. My time is worth a lot so I'm wasting my time right now."

As SOHH previously reported, the rapper (born Curtis Jackson) asked a judge to remove his child's mother Shaniqua Tompkins and the ex-couple's 10-year-old son, Marquise Jaskson, from a Long Island estate he owned.

According to FOX News, Fif paid about $2.4 million for the house, one of the largest in the Long Island town of Dix Hills. Tompkins filed a law suite accusing the rapper of breach of contract and unjust enrichment. Tompkins attorney Paul Catsandonis stated that 50 broke a promise to give Tompkins and their son a home.

"I've been with 50 for a very long time," Tompkins said to the press outside the courtroom, before the verdict was read. "He's a very evil and abusive man and that's why I left him in the first place. Any man that can evict his own child out of a house is evil. After I took care of him and I worked when he wasn't doing anything. He's a very evil and disgruntled man. I just hope God bless him."

Tompkins and Marquis, along with her daughter-from another relationship- were allowed to remain in the rapper's house under the condition that Tompkins use the monthly child support payments of $6,700 to find new residency.

Tompkins contents that the house was bought for her and Marquise. She claimed that Fif changed his mind about putting her name on the lease right before closing. Both parties agreed that the home was bought so Marquise would have access to a quality education.

After a two-and-a-half hour court session yesterday, Tompkins motion was denied and was ordered to pay $9,000 in fees to 50. She has until the end of the school year to move out of the estate.

"[This is] absolutely not [over]," 50 explained to the press. "She's going to try to do everything she could do. She doesn't have a job. This is her job, chasing me around [and] seeing if she can get a few dollars."

Despite the fact the ruling went in Curtis' favor, Catsandonis plans to appeal.

"Nothing is final yet," he told reporters. "This is just one slight interference in the process. We're going all the way and we have a lot of contradictory testimony form Mr. Jackson. It will be raised again. I assure Manhattan Supreme Court or any other courthouse we have to [go]. I'm a trial attorney, I don't give up!"

A displeased Tompkins left the courthouse with this to say, ""God bless Mr. Jackson," she said. "I hope he gets some help and that's just that. It's not final. We're still working on it."

50 Cent Wants His Son & Baby's Mother Out Of His House

written by Brandi Hopper
Thursday - April 3, 2008

Rap mogul 50 Cent is expected to ask a judge today (April 3) to give his ex-girlfriend and their kid the boot from his Long Island house.

Fif wants his child's mother Shaniqua Tompkins and the couple's 10-year-old son, Marquise Jackson, forced out of the home he owns in Long Island, New York, according to Radar.

The rapper (born Curtis Jackson) and his ex went at it in court for a year after Fif filed to create an official child support arrangement because Tomkins financial demands were getting out of hand. In April 2007, a judge awarded Tompkins $25,000 a month ($10,000 in child support, 15,000 for expenses), approximately half of the $50,000 a month she'd requested, while the court reviewed expenses for her and 50's son. The suit ended with 50 laughing all the way to the bank when a judge significantly cut Tompkins checks to $6,700 in February 2008.

Tompkins and Marquis, along with another daughter of Tompkins belonging to a different man, were allowed to remain in 50's house under the condition that Tompkins use some of the money to find new residency.

She hasn't and Fif reportedly doesn't believe she even tried.

Tompkins' lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, said he plans to argue today that an eviction is impossible because his client isn't technically a tenant. She's never had a lease agreement or paid any rent there. In addition, both her children attend school in the upscale district in which the home is located.

On top of that, Tompkins contends the house was bought for her anyway, Fif just changed his mind about putting it in her name right before closing. Earlier claims from both sides said the place was bought so Marquise would have access to quality schooling. No word where Tompkins and her children would go if she were evicted.

On Wednesday, a judge denied a motion for an emergency stay of today's hearing, which may have been requested to allow Tompkins lawyers to prepare a counter suit pertaining to the ownership issues. According to Radar, the denial of this request may mean that the judge didn't feel the eviction and ownership issues were related.

A publicist for 50 had no comment.

Jay-Z Strikes $150 Million Deal With Live Natio

Jay-Z is reportedly close to finalizing a $150 million deal with concert promoter Live Nation to launch a venture called Roc Nation. This coming after Jay-Z stepped down from longtime label Def Jam as president when his contract expired at the end of 2007.

As part of the approximately $150 million partnership, to be called Roc Nation, Live Nation would finance future start-up ventures by Jay-Z, which could include his own label, music publishing, and artist consulting and managing. The deal should be finalized later this week according to the New York Times. Live Nation is expected to contribute $5 million a year in overhead for five years, with another $25 million available to finance Jay-Z’s acquisitions or investments, according to people in the music industry briefed on the agreement.

The deal also reportedly calls for Live Nation to make advance payments to Jay-Z of $10 million for a minimum of three albums spanning the 10-year term, a general advance of $25 million that includes fees for his current tour with Mary J. Blige, and an upfront payment of $25 million. A series of other payments adding up to about $20 million is included in exchange for certain publishing, licensing and other rights.

“It’s really about trying to invest in the future, trying to invest in maybe coming up with a new model, because going in hard making records with artists and throwing those records into a system that’s flawed is not exciting for me.” said Jay-Z.

This puts an end to speculations of an all-digital record label with Apple, among other rumors. Live Nation, known primarily for major rock & country tours have recently inked deals with both U2 and Madonna.
