American entertainer and entrepreneur, Curtis James Jackson III, popularly known as 50 Cent, in an IG live addressed his strained relationship with his eldest son, Marquise Jackson.
During the chat, 50 Cent was asked about his strained relationship with his son.
50 Cent replied saying: “It is sad, it’s a sad situation. When you pray for success, you don’t necessarily pray for the things that come with it. It’s no such thing as success without jealousy without envy or entitlement.”
50 Cent went on to say that he would pay over $1 million in child support and that Marquise “had everything I didn’t have.”
When asked if he loved his son, he said he used to.
He added: “I didn’t think that success would cost me my firstborn but it’s the situation it is. Like, my grandfather used to say, ‘If it rattles like a snake and slithers like a snake, is it a snake or do you need to be bit?”
A few months ago, 50 Cent said he’d pick Brooklyn rapper, 6ix9ine over his own son.
“Nah, I ain’t heard from 6ix9ine. He’s his mother’s child now. He told on everybody,
“He better than Marquise, though. I’ll take him before I take my actual biological son. Fuck that n***a.”
