Cent - 50 Cent Has No Interest In Meeting Estranged Father

50 Cent has no interest in meeting his estranged father because he abandoned the rapper before he was even born.

The Candy Shop hitmaker was raised by his grandparents after his mother Sabrina passed away when he was a young child and the business mogul admits he had a hard time coming to terms with her death.

During an interview with veteran broadcaster Larry King on his U.S. web series Larry King Now, he says, "I don't think I really dealt with it in the early stages. I lost my mum when I was eight, so I didn't really understand at that point. Later, they (my grandparents) would consistently say, 'She's not coming back,' and I'm like, 'Yeah she is.' My grandfather would look at me like, 'He doesn't understand.' Later, you grow and start to understand."

The hip-hop star, real name Curtis Jackson, started selling drugs to support himself, but he eventually fell foul with the law and the 37 year old is convinced it all could have been avoided if his father had been around to keep him out of trouble.

And now he has no interest in forming a relationship with his dad, adding, "I never knew my father. I never actually met him. Some people have that thing where they actually want that parent that they haven't had in their lives. I have no interest in it.

"The mistakes that I made early on... he could've been here to help me not make those mistakes."
