50 Cent has been accused by former girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins of setting his Long Island home on fire. Tompkins and son Marquise were present at the time of the blaze that destroyed the $2.4 million dollar estate on May 30, 2008. 50 has spoken out on the accusations for the first time.
“At the end of the day, that’s why it hasn’t been anything as a result of that towards me from the law enforcement perspective,” the rapper told “TV One Access” in response to Tompkins’ claims.
50 hints at the possibility that his ex-girlfriend set the house on fire herself after the courts ordered her to vacate. “It was more like, ‘If I can’t have it, you can’t have it.'”
Tompkins believes the “In Da Club” hitmaker sent someone to burn down the property. “He’s too much of a coward to do anything himself,” she said at the time.
