We previously reported that rapper 50 Cent was absent from his teen son, Marquise Jackson’s, high school graduation. We also reported that Marquise shared an emotional photo and message to his dad about feeling disappointed (See HERE). Well, that may not have been the case.
We’ve since learned that the photo of the teen, seemingly, breaking down in the arms of his sister and message may have been a fake. As for 50, he insists he did not intentionally miss his son’s graduation but was instead prevented from attending the ceremony.
According to TMZ, “50 Cent didn’t abandon his son on high school graduation day — despite an emotional Facebook post from the kid — instead 50 claims he was intentionally blocked from attending by his son’s mother … at least that’s what 50 is telling friends.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, Fiddy is extremely hurt and upset by the photo his son Marquise Jackson posted on Facebook Sunday crying in his cap and gown while hugging his mother.
Here’s the photo in question.
The site adds, “But 50 disagrees … telling friends he was never told when or where the graduation ceremony was, or he would have been there. FYI, the ceremony was at Marquise’s private school in ATL (the same school 50 reportedly foots the bills for).
We’re told 50 spent last weekend in NYC for a charity event.”
We’ve also now learned that the above image may have been altered to add the emotional message.
What are your thoughts CK readers, do you think the rapper is still at fault for missing his son’s graduation?
