DIX HILLS, N.Y. (AP) A multimillion-dollar home at the center of a bitter dispute between 50 Cent and the mother of his son was destroyed by a suspicious fire early Friday.
Six people, including 50's ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins and their 10-year-old son, Marquis, were taken to a hospital after suffering smoke inhalation and later released. A firefighter also suffered a minor eye injury, officials said.
50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, doesn't live in the home and wasn't there at the time.
The home has been the subject of an intense feud between 50 and Tompkins.
Tompkins, 32, filed a lawsuit against 50 earlier this year claiming he had promised her a house more than a decade ago, but that since their breakup, he now wants to evict her and their 10-year-old son from the home.
Tompkins' lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, said the 31-year-old rapper paid about $2.4 million for the house last year.
