G-Unit head 50 Cent will have to wait a bit longer to find out what his fate is after being accused of assaulting former girlfriend and alleged baby mother Daphne Joy earlier this month.
According to reports, Fif won’t be arraigned today (July 22) and now has to wait a few weeks.
The arraignment for rapper 50 Cent, who is charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend, was postponed Monday. The 37-year-old artist, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, faces one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism stemming from a June 23 incident in Toluca Lake. The arraignment is now scheduled for Aug. 5. (CBS Local)
Recently, reports of Daphne Joy’s child’s birth certificate not having 50’s name listed on it emerged.
50 Cent didn’t father a child with ex-GF Daphne Joy — the woman he allegedly attacked during a domestic violence incident last month — at least according to the child’s birth certificate … but the document doesn’t rule out 50 either. Not even close. TMZ obtained the certificate — which shows Daphne is the mom — but it doesn’t list a father. The daddy field is blank, which means one of two things … A) Daphne didn’t know who the dad was, or B) she didn’t want to say. (TMZ)
Even with the perceived break, reports suggest Fif is probably still the father.
But all clues still point to 50 being the dad — namely, the child’s last name is listed as Jackson … as in Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent. As we reported, neither 50 nor Daphne have ever acknowledged the child is his … but the L.A. City Attorney’s Office kinda let the cat out of the bag when it announced the domestic violence charges against 50, saying he and Daphne had a “child in common.” FYI, 50 Cent does have another child, officially on the books, with another ex-GF named Shaniqua Tompkins.

Fif’s current legal problems reportedly cost him a performance at Major League Baseball’s All-Star activities last week.
The “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” recording artist was lined-up to perform at the Roseland Ballroom on July 14 along with record producer and DJ Kaskade. But the event’s updated Facebook page has removed his name from the bill and in its place, “surprise performances” will instead take place. (Ace Showbiz)
Joy had an attorney formally speak out on the domestic violence accusations earlier this month.
Daphne Joy, who was born in the Philippines, has a baby by the rapper and is now focusing on safety for the child and herself, said Jim Yeager, a spokesman for the Los Angeles law firm of Meyer, Olson, Lowy & Meyers, which is representing her. The alleged victim, whose name wasn’t earlier disclosed by authorities, released her name Friday through Yeager. “Daphne Joy and Curtis Jackson have been together for a few years in an exclusive relationship,” said a statement by the law firm. “They had a child and now Daphne’s number one priority is to ensure both her and the baby’s safety during this difficult time. We also hope everyone will respect her and the baby’s privacy.” (CNN)
