G-Unit’s 50 Cent is taking legal action to clear his name in a nasty criminal case involving him allegedly assaulting a baby’s mother.
According to reports, Curtis Jackson has issued a statement through an attorney.
50 Cent is adamant … he did NOT kick his baby mama during an explosive argument last month. 50 Cent’s attorney released a statement, saying, “Curtis Jackson [50 Cent] denies these allegations as made against him. It is important to note, Mr. Jackson has not been arrested and there is no warrant outstanding for his arrest.” TMZ broke the story … 50 was charged with domestic violence this week following the alleged domestic dispute at his baby mama’s Toluca Lake home, during which he allegedly kicked her and destroyed a bunch of her property (more than $7,000 worth).

If things do not go Fif’s way, he could find himself behind bars for up to five years.
50’s attorney adds, “We have been in contact with the LA City Attorney’s Office and are currently conducting our own investigation into these allegations.” 50 was hit with 5 charges in total stemming from the incident — including 1 count misdemeanor domestic violence and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism. Cops responded to the scene following the incident, but 50 had already left. If convicted on all counts, 50 could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines. He is due in court to be arraigned on July 22. (TMZ)

In June 2007, the rapper’s baby’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, took him to court over child support payments.
Rapper 50 Cent’s child support payments are no chump change. He doles out $25,000 a month in child support and household expenses to the mother of his 10-year-old son, Marquise Jackson. But the boy’s mother, Shaniqua Tompkins, says that’s not enough. The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, is “worth tens and tens of millions of dollars,” said her attorney, Raoul Felder.
