Reports swirled earlier this week that 50 Cent refused to meet with fire officials regarding the fire that blazed a Long Island mansion he owned (and his child’s mother lived in).
The rapper’s camp, however, issued a statement denying the allegations.
“50 and his attorneys met yesterday with Suffolk County authorities regarding the fire that destroyed 50′s house,” a statement obtained by TMZ read. “The meeting had been arranged weeks ago. 50 is eager to review the findings of the investigation, when it is concluded.”
Previously, officials claimed the rapper did not respond to any correspondence.
The cause of the fire has been disputed by many. The mother of 50′s son, Shaniqua Tompkins, alleged the rapper threatened to kill her. The two have been at odds for some time now over the custody of their son. 50 denied his involvement in the fire.–Anthony Thomas
