50 Cent to evict son

50 Cent has asked a judge to evict his 10-year-old son and ex-girlfriend from his New York house.

The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, wants Shaniqua Tompkins and their son Marquise Jackson to leave the property in Long Island.

In February, a judge reduced Tompkins' monthly support payments from $25,000 to $6,700 on the condition they would partly use the money in a bid to find a new place to live.

But 50 is now claiming Tompkins - who also lives with a daughter from another relationship - didn't even attempt to look for a new residence, and is taking advantage of the situation as the house is still in his name and he continues to pay all the bills.

However, Tompkins' lawyer Paul Catsandonis is expected to argue today that her client cannot be evicted from the property as she is not officially a tenant, because she never had a lease agreement and consequently has never paid rent.

Catsandonis will also claim Tompkins was initially promised the house by 50, but the rapper changed his mind before closing the sale.

A representative for 50 refused to comment on the case.
