She's Going to Reduce him to about Fifteen Cents

50 Cent in child support court battle

The $25,000 a month in child support and household expenses that rapper 50 Cent pays to the mother of his 10-year-old son is not enough, says the boy's mother, Shaniqua Tompkins.

The rapper is "worth tens and tens of millions of dollars," said her attorney, Raoul Felder.

The parents of young Marquise Jackson are wrangling over the issue in family court in this Long Island community, where 50 Cent arrived Friday in an armored SUV equipped with a satellite dish.

50 Cent no longer needs to worry about the choice he famously expressed on a 2004 album — "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."

With his G-Unit record label, clothing line, ring tones and other enterprises, 50 Cent — whose real name is Curtis Jackson — reeled in an estimated $33 million in the past year, according to Forbes. He has sold more than 11 million albums and has a new album, "Curtis," due out in September.

His lawyer, Brett Kimmel, called Tompkins "insatiable."

"Her demands keep escalating," he told the Daily News.

Closed-door hearings on the child-support case are scheduled to continue this coming week.

I got issues with this. $25,000 a month is enough to take care of a child. She is not his wife. She is no entitled to a percentage of his earnings. She is entitled to enough money to take care of the child he helped bring into this world and that is enough. I hate greedy ass bytches. I have to make do with a little less than $300 a month of support to take of Stinkie.....Bytch please....Go get a job.

As long as this money is out aside for the child(in a trust) then I don't have a problem with her getting a grip.
