50 Cent has filed court papers in Long Island, New York against the mother of his son, Shaniqua Tompkins. The rapper alleges Tompkins has defamed him with comments suggesting the G-Unit leader was behind the fire that burned down her mansion last month. The home was at the center of a dispute between the pair; 50 recently threatened to evict her if she didn't pay the monthly tab on the home, which he owned. "There comes a point where you can no longer sit on your hands and listen to her spread these falsehoods," a legal rep for Fif explained. He also claims Tompkins has not let him see his son since the incident and refuses to reveal where mother and child are living. [NY Daily News]
