50 Cent Employee Accused of 2008 Fire at Long Island Estate

Shana Chin, a Connecticut woman, testified in court Thursday (Feb. 25) against Dwayne McKenzie, an associate of 50 Cent whom she claims assaulted her while she was visiting him at the rap star’s Long Island mansion, reports the Republican American.

In her testimony she claimed that in addition to being violent with her, McKenzie also often talked about setting the house that belonged to 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend on fire. While the rapper was not specifically named in the case, this accusation will likely reignite interest in the case of the suspicious house fire that occurred at 50’s Long Island estate in 2008 which occurred shortly after Chin claims she was assaulted.

As previously reported, 50’s $1.4 million estate was suspicious set ablaze in May 2008 sending both his ex, Shaniqua Tompkins, and their son Marquise, to the hospital. At the time the Queens MC was engaged in a bitter battle to evict Tompkins from the house. —Brooklyne Gipson
