Rapper 50 Cent, or Curtis Jackson, to his mom, has denied accusations of domestic violence and vandalism leveled at him by Shaniqua Tompkins, a former lover and, reportedly, mother of his child. She told police the rapper became enraged and violent during an argument in which he smashed furniture in her California condo including a TV and a lamp. Tompkins says Jackson also broke a chandelier and kicked her after smashing through a bedroom door. Jackson, for his part, has denied any wrongdoing and rejects the allegations.
So it’s a case of he-said-she-said. The rapper will appear in court on July 22. If convicted of five counts of vandalism and misdemeanor domestic violence, he could face five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He might be going straight to the bank for that.
