Cent - 50 Cent Hits Back At Bad Dad Reports

A representative for 50 Cent has hit out at reports suggesting the rap superstar has abandoned his teenage son after suffering a major fall-out last year (13).

The In Da Club hitmaker, real name Curtis Jackson, became embroiled in a feud with Marquise and his mother Shaniqua Tompkins in January, 2013 after the boy reportedly refused to answer the door when his famous father visited.

They exchanged a series of angry text messages over the incident, and the family drama went public after they were shared online, with 50 Cent allegedly declaring "I don't have a son anymore" in one angry text.

50 Cent's reputation as a father hit headlines again this week (begs06Jan14) after Tompkins alleged he had not seen Marquise since May, 2012 - but now the hip-hop mogul is fighting back, dismissing suggestions he's a bad dad.

A statement issued by the rapper's representative to Tmz.com reads: "50 is saddened by the attention-seeking tactics of his son's mother. He remains a proud and supportive father and feels blessed to have two sons."

50 Cent became a father for the second time in September, 2012 after ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy gave birth to a son named Sire Jackson.

The star shared a series of photos of the tot on his Instagram.com page on Monday (06Jan14), before deleting them moments later over fears he was putting the child's safety in danger by plastering his photo all over the blog.

50 Cent's relationship with Joy hasn't gone so smoothly either - he was sentenced to probation and 30 days of community service in October (13) after he was accused of domestic violence following an alleged fight with her.
