AceShowbiz - 50 Cent will not squash his beef with his son Marquise Jackson anytime soon. The "Power" creator revealed in an Instagram Live interview with XXL's Van Lathan on Tuesday, May 5 that he no longer loves his 22-year-old son, whom he shares with Shaniqua Tompkins.
"When you pray for success, you don't necessarily pray for the things that come with it. It's no such thing as success without jealousy, without envy, or entitlement," he explained. "His mom developed an entitlement that could not be met, filtering that energy through his actual personal interest."
The "In Da Club" rapper went on to say, "Let's say, now he's starting to like females. He's conscious of what kind of shoes he wants to wear. 'I need these Jordans, these retro Jordans.' His mother goes, 'Alright. I'll get them for you, but it bothers me because you're supposed to have more.' So, while being a privileged child, he feels deprived."
"[Marquise] had everything I didn't have," Fiddy, who claimed to pay 1 million dollars in child support, continued. "So, with [Marquise], I noticed over the years…I blamed it on his mom for a long time. But, it's not his mother. It's him. I've gone to places where he was at, and he left."
Fofty was then later asked if he loves Marquise, and his response was, "Used to. [but] how long can you love someone who don't love you back?" He shared that it never came to his mind that "success would cost me my firstborn, but it's the situation it is."
"Like, 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 [I] see the boy, he shows up with somebody [I] got a problem with. What does that tell you?" he continued. He added that he thought Marquise "sees himself that way [as 50's enemy] to the point that he's taking pictures with Supreme."
The rapper then hinted that it would take much time before he finally reconciles with his son, noting that a lot would have to change on Marquise's side before it happens.
