50 Cent’s Child Support Payments Reduced

The amount of child support that 50 Cent is required to pay to his son’s mother, Shaniqua Tomkins, was drastically reduced this week. According to the New York Post, Tomkins had originally asked for $50,000 a month in support from the superstar MC to cover living expenses for their 10 year-old son Marquis. 50 objected to the amount and brought her to court. While the case was under review, he was ordered to pay her $25,000 per month. “This guy is worth tens and tens of millions of dollars,” Tomkins’ attorney Raoul Felder argued at the time. But a judge this week cut that amount down to $6,700. “My client and I are very happy with the ruling,” said 50’s attorney Brett Kimmel.

    That’s what that bitch get’s,because at the end of the day she’s just trying to get paid because come on you think 50 ain’t buying his son clothes,feeding him and put them in a nice crib ? so there’s no other reason to have child support for 50,000 a month other than for the greedy mother.If she was smarter she would have played her cars right,got on his good side and maybe he would wife her one day because history has proven that rappers usually marry there baby mama or old girlfriend who knew them before the fame.

      50,000 A YEAR AINT SHIT SON, I CAN MAKE THAT IN A MONTH ON THE BLOCK. I PAY 120,000 A MONTH FOR A CHILD I ADOPTED WITH MY EX-HUSBAND. I AINT GAY OR NOTHING I DID IT FOR THE KID, CAUSE I LOVE LITTLE CHINESE BOYS. BUT ANY WAYS I WIPE MY ASS WITH 6,700 A MONTH.

        i think it said $50K a month! Not $50K a year, any dead beat could come up with that in a year. Learn to read.

  • maxamill

    THAT IS ONE GREEDY BITCH AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA YA BITCH YA

  • prodigalson

    Fif may be worth $$$$ but that don’t mean his ex gotta try and take it all from him, that’s bullshit excuse to throw on someone, especially when its obvious the son spend half the time with fiddy, cosign fireforreal, what you think he’s not settin his son up for life, money, support, clothes, food… seems to me like the women wants some of the money for herself.

    • ill G

      of course she does…she is a greedy, bitter, baby mama. I dont understand how a judge didnt reduce the shit earlier…i mean who cares how much he is makin thats fucked up!! 6 stacks a month is more than enuff for that bitch …damn i dont make as much as 50 and these child support bastards are tryin to RAISE my shit!!

    • lisa

      Exactly! In essence she was getting more because 50 always has his son. He bought her a house in RI so his son could be in a good school district. So she has NO mortgage and I’m sure no car payment. I am black woman and I knew that wasn’t right.

  • http://www.myspace.com/mc585 johnny Cockrin

    that’s what’s up. These baby mama’s are fucking other and getting payed thousands a month. Fuck all that. 50 thousand u serious, I don’t give a fly fuck if I make that sht per minute. Fuck all that. Don’t get me wrong, take care of yours niggas but fuck paying an ex just to raise ur child specially when your involved in your seeds life.

  • Worley

    Yea, since when a 10 year old needs 50K a month to live? That was her lawyer asking for that money. Raoul Felder is greedy as hell. He usually deals with rich white folk divorces. No doubt he was walking away with 30% of that.

    If the kid is supposed to live at the standard of the breadwinner just send the kid to live with the breadwinner. Eight more years to go Fif and then you can let the b*tch starve.

  • ATL = All Trannies Live

    If you making millions of dollars a month, what’s 25k? He probably spends more than that on clothes.

    • PHENOMENON

      25,OOO DOLLARS MONTH IS STILL 25,OOO DOLLARS.

      AND HIS CLOTHES ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

      IT’S THE PRINCIPAL OF IT ALL.

      HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF SOMEONE JUST WANTED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU AND THE FRUITS OF YOUR HARD LABOR?????

      TELL ME WHAT HAS THIS WOMAN DONE TO DESERVE THE 5O,OOO DOLLARS A MONTH THAT SHE IS ASKING FOR?????????

      IT’S UNWARRANTED. SHES GOING TO SPEND IT ON HERSELF.

      WHAT 1O YEAR OLD DO YOU KNOW THAT NEEDS 5O,OOO DOLLARS TO LIVE????????????

      6,7OO DOLLARS IS WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY MORE THAN ENOUGH.

      THATS 8O,4OO DOLLARS A YEAR!!!!!!

      THATS MASTERS DEGREE RECIPIENTS WAGES!!!

      F*CK OUTTA HERE!!!

      • lisa

        lol……”that’s master degree recipients wages”…..I know that’s right and I have a masters.

    • lisa

      That’s not the point. She has no right to take advantage especially when he is and has always taken care of his son. 50 works for those millions not Ms. Tomkins.

  • jojochicago

    GOOD! how much does it takes to raise a child?! She ain’t earned shit to be getting 25k a month! plus 50 is active in his child’s life, not like we don’t see lil shorty in ads and videos. Plus shouldn’t no hood rat be getting that much paper a month to be fucking it off! SHe probably can’t earn half that 6k a month on her own.

  • this is crazy

    how old are you most of the people on here?? honestly..you kids let these rap songs warp your mind (i’ll be lmao when all these rappers finally come out of the closet–no bullshit–75% of these niggas are GAY–for real…pimp c wasn’t lyin—if you live in manhattan you know you be seein these niggas on christopher street…and if you live in manhattan yo KNOW that the whole rapper style of dress is straight up christopher street homo–if you aren’t from ny–just take a step back and look at these fools in a different context—i mean look at fabolous objectivley–great rapper–but tell me he aint a straight up astor place fag!! honestly…anyway–the point is that its real fucked up to let a bunch of gay dudes dictate the way you approach women..you’ll understand when you get older that all is shit will leave you lonely and miserable….anyway back to 50: i understand you don’t want to get used; but anybody on her over 25 should know that if you have 80 fuckin million, there is NO WAY you could let your son live in a household worth only 80 thousand a year…its fuckin insane–you want him livin in a $600,000 neighborhood and going to a $600,000 school…and MOST IMPORTANTLY..TO GROW UP AROUND OTHER $600,000 kids and families so that he doesn’t carry on your gheto bullshit—-this is fukin insane—i’ve officially lost all respect for 50—no disrespect to the younger cats on here–but seriously-you’ll understand when you get older…one love yall

      I hear what you’re saying, but maybe it was reduced so much because of joint custody or something like that. Maybe he has his son with him half the time, so she doesn’t need $50k.

    • Hip-Hop

      I would agree with you if I was convinced that she was going to spend ALL the money on their son…but it aint happening. This is a classic case of a baby mother using her pussy at a free meal ticket for life.

    • 4real

      What the fuck, (this is crazy), is the right name for this person. It has to be a gold digging chick who can’t make it off her own assets except for what a man gives her, after she sucks and fucks him. Bitch can’t even spell on her comments so I know she not educated, use spell check next time. If she can’t be successful enough to make 600k a year with a real job then the kid needs to live with the one who can provide that, because that’s the penalty for not sticking around. $80,000 is more than enough, especially when she is able to work, lazy ass women.

  • mrs. scott

    i just had to comment as a african american queen who deals with the child support system and a good ass baby mama who don’t ask for nothing from my sons’ father but to be in their lives ( i got my own money b*&%$#es): the only reason 50′s babymama didn’t get that money is because 50 ain’t got it to give, so apparently he is broke. his clothing line just folded over, his album ain’t do nothing but make kanye hotter, i mean gentlemen let’s be for real, your boy is BROKE. the law sometimes unfortunately is always on the side of the mother so for her not to get that money, like i said he ain’t got it. and i know he ain’t making money off that water because as bad as times are getting i would rather drink tap than spend over two bucks of that crap and apparently i ain’t the only one who thinks that cause everytime i see his water it’s a ton of it sitting on the shelf.

    • Trickdd

      well bitch if you researched your hip hop news like you act then you would know 50 cent just sold vitamin water to cocacola for 400 million. I dont think hes broke bitch, you should research before you “nappy headed hoes” start to open your cock vaccume up, lol!

    • Real Talk

      well guess what i would say your right>>> but your not. 50 cent is rich he sold vitamin water to coca-cola for 400 million earlier in 07. so think before you say some dumb shit mrs.scott. No wonder you baby daddy left yo ass. You thought you knew it all. Im gonna tell you like I tell Trickdd….go back to school.

    • sagnasty

      yeah 50 is “broke”… thats why this niggas in FORBES magazine with jay, puffy, bill gates and all the other bum muh fuckers, right? Just cuz theres a shitload of vitamin water on the shelf doesnt take away the fact that he owned stake in the company before big ass coca cola bought it for more money you can count. it dont matter they dont sell another bottle of that shit, that was straight money to the bank from the 1 time deal. clothing contract ended with ecko, he needs a new distributor, but who really cares no one buys that shit anyways… but on another note, yeah fuck that gold diggin bitch, nice to see her plan in life is just takin the next niggas rightfully EARNED shit.

  • HC

    50 cent should be named 1 cent bc he sure ain’t worth even 50 cents. Hell I wouldn’t even pay a halfpenny for one of his albums. What a greedy, selfish pig!!! He should be paying more than $50,000 a month towards taking care of his child and the woman who bore and is mothering and caring for the child. He certainly makes plenty of money and these children should get everything they deserve. $50G a month is p*ssing change to him. I bet most of these nasty comments are from men who don’t want to take care of their own children. And if they are women, shame on you! And if they are mothers, really shame on you. If you were in the same situation you would want the best for your child if it was affordable, and in his case it is. He has made over $400 million dollars in one year alone. And that is just from that stupid beverage company-that’s not counting cd sales, concerts, endorsements, video games and other income sources he probably has. Before taxes, that’s somewhere around $35 millon dollars a month. Even after he pays taxes, it would most likely be at least $15-20 million dollars a month and maybe more than that if he has a great tax lawyer. And you don’t think that child deserves a portion of that. How nice that fathers get to go on with their lives and forget about the children they created. That hasn’t happened in our history before huh? Black mothers haven’t been left to care for their children alone with the man griping about having to pay to take care of the child, if he even bothered to pay at all. mr jackson probably would have forgotten about this child already if the mother had let him. Hey, if she’s out partying and acting a fool like Britney Spears is doing, then I could understand. But why should this mother even have to scrape and struggle a little bit if this man can afford it?

    Hell, if the amount of money needed to care for a child were the issue, afdc determines that it’s a lot less than around 15G yearly in cash, food and health benefits to take care of a child. So maybe the judge should reduce this woman’s benefits to poverty level-that’s all she really needs isn’t it? Screw it that she has to run herself ragged trying to stretch that out to provide minimal for her children. Hell, let him father 20-30 more children and let him pay all the mamas poverty living wages while he lives on $20 million dollars a month. That would surely serve to advance African Americans, wouldn’t it?

    And for the self-righteous A@@ who said 50cent should take the child away from her and care for it himself, that’s a joke. Ya know he wouldn’t take care of the boy himself. That is the biggest joke. He would hire people to do it for him(and I bet you it would cost him more than 15G a month where he lives). He would most likely spend minimal time with the child, just like he does now. He thinks that taking the child on a few vacations here and there is quality time. He certainly wouldn’t be there to personally attend to the child’s every need. If he didn’t hire staff, he’d most likely have a girlfriend looking after the child. Get mad, but you all know it’s the truth. The child is most likely better off with its mother, unless the woman is beating or neglecting the child, which doesn’t seem to be the case. Hey it’s not like he’s a very good role model anyway. It’s better the child is with its mama.

    In case most aren’t aware, there have been studies that show that the services a woman (or male homemaker for the few that exist) provides taking care of the household and children is valued at about 131G a year–that’s not counting the physical things the child needs (clothes, food, hygiene, educational items, etc), that’s just the cleaning, cooking, driving, errands, and child care services,etc many mothers provide 24/7. Look at the amount just simple part time child care costs (40 hours a week and imagine if it were a 24/7 hired nanny)-Because you know he wouldn’t take care of the child’s needs personally-just like you know he don’t clean his house personally, or cook for himself, and most likely has aides and assistants to take care of most of his needs. These are the services that a woman raising a child provides for that child and they should be fairly compensated. If a normal person had to pay for all the services a woman provides, he couldn’t afford it-50 cent has way enuf $ to provide a better manner of living for this child.

    And this child is ten years old. Do you think mr jackson been making this money all along? Do you think he’s been properly caring for this child all along? I know enough but I’d like to see the full story. While he was busy out trying to follow his dream to become a musician, who was taking care of this child? How do you think that child is going to feel when it knew that his father could’ve afford to get it the best education and care and things that money could buy but he was cheap as hell. That child deserves to go to the best school that can be afforded and get the best care that can be afford.

    And if you guys think a woman is moneygrubbing keep your damned d*** in your pants, it’s your fault if you have no self control and don’t know how to put a condom on your thing. You men and your society have put many women in that position, and you want to keep them there, then turn around and complain about it, and shame on you for it. If a person (man or woman) can afford it, they should pay for it, and he can certainly afford it. 50G a month is not unreasonable for someone that makes the income he makes. And 50G a month hardly makes her a golddigger. What did he have when she got with him? He didn’t sign his first million dollar deal until around 2002 or so (coincidence that was about the time the pair splilt up-you tell me who the pig is here, not her). The child was born in 1997. I repeat, she is hardly a gold digger. A gold digger would be more along the lines of a twenty-some year old who marries an 80 year old (or so) for a year or two and then expects 80 million out of it. That’s a gold digger, not a woman who expects an amount of money commensurate with what the higher-wage earner receives.

    I hope she gets a better lawyer and appeals that decision. Someone must be paying off the judge, or he is a stupid man who doesn’t like paying for the children he makes either-but of course the judges haven’t always been known to stand up for children’s rights. Yeah, mr jackson ‘provides for himself by any means,’ even if it means taking from his own child and that child’s caretaker. I bet he probably spends more than 50G monthly on people to care for himself, like paying for his cooks, drivers, housecleaners, accountants, personal service assistants, personal shoppers, decorators, body guards, etc, etc. I bet he spends more than that a month feeding and drugging and liquoring up that entourage that runs around with him all the time, no wonder he can’t manage to provide that for his child and the child’s mother. That’s not counting what I’m sure he spends on luxury items for himself. I bet you he spends more than the $6-15G a month on his girlfriends and entertaining them, just one really nice bracelet or necklace would cost on the lower end of that range and he probably is so macho that he doesn’t want to be seen as cheap among the potential bedmates. If he is living in a mansion, that child should be too, and if it means the woman who provides care for that child should be living in a mansion then so be it. You all are not seeing the bigger picture here. You all should be ashamed of yourself for holding these no-count celebrities up to idol status. You think 50 cent would stand up for you all on any level. Do you really thing that? Come on now-you are severely living in a dream world if you think he would. Good lordy no–he would most likely sick his bodyguards on you if you came too close to him, might even try to punch you himself. Get real, he’s not one of you and doesn’t even view himself that way. And you all are like sheep standing in line to give a man money who don’t even want to properly take care of his child in a way he can afford to. You men want the women to gather food and take care of the camp and children while you go out and hunt a buffalo or two and bring it home for women to clean and cook and make sure there’s enough for everyone while you sit at the campfire picking your teeth. What a step backwards!!!!!!!

    • quietstorm

      I’m not even gonna pretend that I read through your whole rant but I did read some of it so I’ll address a few of your points. You are right some of the brothas posting on here are sounding like immature buffoons who probably try to avoid taking full responsibility of their children. With that said they are not the majority. The reason most comments are harsh toward the mother of 50′s child is because most of the women are rightfully angered by a woman who was getting $300,000 a year in child support from a man who was always in her child’s life and had always cared for them both. They are angered that this woman never had to go to court for this extraordinary amount of money since he paid it without a court order. They are angered that she received this with no court involvement when in most cases too many sistas have to fight tooth and nail to get minimal support but this woman wants to terminate a long standing agreed upon support arrangement out of greed, not neccessity!

      She can appeal but this judges ruling but it isn’t likely to be overturned. Since you evidently don’t seem to know, Raoul Felder, the mother’s lawyer is a very famous and well known divorce/child support attorney. She isn’t gonna get and better representation than him! The reason she lost is because she was required to prove that the child’s expenses warranted a 100% increase in child support. Well since the home she lives in is a very large McMansion, in and extremely exclusive neighborhood, bought and paid for in full by 50 cent and she has several almost new luxury vehicles that are paid for in full by 50 cent. So she had no real expenses that she could prove for their son that exceed what she was already receiving. On the contrary when things were evaluated by the courts it was determined that she had very minimal expenses because of his already very generous arrangment toward her, especially considering how much time the child also spent with the father. This explaination coming to you from a brotha whose a father of 3 and has cared very well for all 3 from the time they were conceived!!

    this is a joke I am a woman and straight up that bitch needs to get her ass a job if she has 100% custody he don’t do shit then ya its gonna cost a little more but if he shares custody then its gonna cost a little less. But I am sorry child support should be for the child not for mom dukes to sit on her ass with no job with her hand out. He don’t owe her shit. Money aint to dress her, pay for some mansion, pay for a live in nanny when bitch aint working. I think they should put a cap on child support, its sickening nobody needs that kinda money on a monthly basis
