50 Cent's House Burns Down Amid Battle with Baby Momma

Los Angeles - A mansion owned by 50 Cent a.k.a Curtis Jackson burned down on Long Island Thursday. The $1.4-million dollar home was the residence of 50’s ex-girlfriend Shaniqua and their son, who were in the house at the time, and were treated in hospital and released for smoke inhalation.

After an off-duty police officer noticed the smoldering estate, all six occupants, where rescued and taken to a hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

The former couple have been battling in court after she filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the rapper.The two were caught in a screaming match by TMZ cameras, Thursday outside of the office of Tompkins’ lawyer, which 50 and friends had reportedly just trashed.

It seems things really heated up over at the multimillion-dollar Long Island home authorities labeled a “highly suspicious” fire. Shaniqua alleges that 50 tried to evict her “unjustly.” Tompkins claims that 50 Cent, promised her the home.

According to her lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, Jackson signed a document granting Tompkins half of all his earnings. He described the dispute with the rapper and his client as “extremely, extremely contentious” and referred to an event as his office on Monday as an “extremely dangerous incident.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
