50 Cent accused of trying to torch ex-girlfriend, sonJune 2nd, 2008 - 2:01 pm ICT by admin
London, Jun 02 (ANI): American rapper Curtis James Jackson III or 50 Cent as he is known, has been accused by his ex-girlfriend of trying to kill her and his own son.
Shaniqua Tompkins said that the singer tried to kill them in a fire, which has burned his mansion to the ground.
“He tried to kill me and his own child,” the Sun quoted a tearful Tompkins as saying.
The 31-year-old and her 10-year-old son Marquise were at the 1.2million pounds home in Dix Hills, New York State, when it erupted in flames on Friday May 30.
Tompkins accused Jackson as being responsible for the fire, as they had had a big fight about the house a few days before the fire. He had been trying to get her evicted.
The In Da Club star has denied starting the fire and has claimed that he was filming in Louisiana at the time.
According to fire officials, they have confirmed that the blaze was “definitely suspicious” and they have started a probe into it after Tompkins said they were firebombed with a “Molotov cocktail.” (ANI)
