50 Cent

After months of child custody disputes and court sessions, 50 Cent and his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins appeared in a Long Island courtroom yesterday (October 22) agreeing to weekend custody rights over their 11 year-old son, Marquise.

According to the New York Post, the settlement grants 50 the right to visit Marquise one weekend a month, one month throughout the summer and on specified holidays.  Despite not being allowed his two requested weekend visits a month, the G-Unit leader expressed his relief that the proceedings have finally come to an end.

“I’m happy it’s actually done with,” 50 said outside of the courtroom.

While no official reason has been offered for why the judge ruled against the rapper’s two weekend request, Tompkins justifies the decision as being at their son’s own discretion.

Marquise didn’t want that,” she told The Post. “He’s going to get visitation on his terms.”

The couple are currently scheduled to appear at a Manhattan courtroom in January to address Tompkin’s $50 million civil case against 50. 

In related news, the platinum selling rapper has been tagged to star in director Gela Babluani‘s upcoming movie 13.

According to Variety, 50 will be joined by a stellar cast that includes actors Mickey Rourke and The Transporter action star Jason Statham. The film will be a remake of Babluani’s Sundance-winning French version called 13 Tzameti.

The English-spoken feature will center on a man who willingly steals an unknown package that is expected to pay out a fortune in the end. 

Details are still arising on whether or not other elements from the original will resurface which follows a young character called “Sebastian” on his path to an underworld of mental chaos where men gamble upon the lives of other men.

13 will begin shooting November 17 in the New York City area.
