50 Cent starts countdown until his child support ends, and his son responds

Rapper appears to tell his ex-girlfriend, "Man real life is gonna start sooners than you think"

50 Cent has started a countdown until he no longer has to make child support payments.

According to a screen-grab the rapper shared on Instagram, his child support obligations will end on October 13, 2017 – the day his son Marquise Jackson turns 21.

Fiddy’s then-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins gave birth to Jackson on October 13, 1996. “Man real life is gonna start Sooners then you think. Sad part is I wish you well, good,” the rapper wrote in his Instagram post.


As Instagram account The Shade Room spotted, the rapper’s son Marquise Jackson has replied to his father’s post with a comment, writing: “Don’t worry, I’ll make u proud! Just dont forget to tell me happy birthday that day cause u missed a few.”

In July of this year 50 Cent had his bankruptcy deal approved by a judge. Around a year earlier, the rapper – real name Curtis Jackson – had filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection at the US Bankruptcy Court in Hartford, Connecticut in 2015, with assets and debts both in the range of $10-50m (£6.5m–£32m).


Earlier this year, the rapper got into hot water after posting photos of stacks of cash on his Instagram. He later claimed that the money was a “prop”.
