50 Cent posted a rather tacky countdown clock metering the days until his child support payments to Shaniqua Tompkins come to an end. The days number 366 in total, but who’s counting? 50 is. He went extra petty with the Instagram caption, “Man, real life is gonna start Sooners then you think. Sad part is I wish you well, good,” and implored Tompkins to get a job.
His son by Tompkins, Marquise Jackson, offered the following clapback: “Don’t worry, I’ll make u proud! Just don’t forget to tell me happy birthday that day cause u missed a few.” This kid’s already making us proud.
Marquise, a high school football player, has previously described his relationship with 50 Cent as “strained.” The lighter child support burden should help 50 address some financial trouble he’s hit in recent years—including a plan reported earlier this summer to restructure his finances. The Get Rich or Die Trying rapper filed for bankruptcy when he lost a $7 million lawsuit over a sex tape he reportedly leaked.
