Rapper 50 Cent has won the latest round in a series of court battles with ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins, the mother of his 10-year-old son.
A Long Island housing court judge ruled yesterday that Tompkins must vacate the $2.4 million Dix Hills, New York home, where she has reportedly been living with 50's son as well as her daughter from another relationship and her boyfriend.
During a hearing yesterday (April 3) at the Suffolk County Third District court, a judge recognized 50 Cent, born Curtis Jackson, as the rightful owner of the 5,000-square foot house.
The judge ordered that Tompkins must find a new living arrangement by the end of the 2007-2008 school year.
She must also pay Jackson a total of $9,000.
In a February court appearance, a judge reduced the amount of child support 50 was responsible for from $25,000 to $6,700 per month, which was to provide Tompkins the funds needed to find a new home.
The G-Unit boss and his attorney maintain she's made no attempts to do so.
"To have her living there with her boyfriend and several other people is inappropriate," the artist said following the two hour hearing. "She's in the house with people I'm not responsible to pay housing for."
The hearing came after Tompkins filed a lawsuit in Manhattan on Wednesday (April 2), accusing 50 of "breach of contract," alleging that he promised to provide housing for her and her children.
