50 Cent Counts Down Days Until His Last Child Support Payment For His Oldest Son

50 Cent and his oldest son Marquise don't have the best relationship, and even worse, a few of their squabbles have been documented on social media. The latest fight in their bumpy bond occurred after the Power executive producer posted a clock counting down the days until he no longer has to pay child support.

Dated on Marquise's birthday, October, 13, 2017, 50 Cent made it clear he's fully aware of the date he legally will no longer have to financially support his oldest boy.

"Man real life is gonna start sooner than you think," 50 Cent commented. "Sad part is I wish you well. Good. #Shaniquagetajob"

Marquise later responded by also taking a jab at his old man, stating despite his well wishes, he missed a few milestones. "Don't worry, I'll make you proud," Marquise wrote. "Just don't forget to tell me happy birthday that day [because] you missed a few."

Back in February, 50 Cent attempted to reach out to Marquise via Instagram in hopes to begin mending their relationship. In the comment, 50 spoke highly of his son who looks just like him.

“You will be 20 in a few months I’m happy to see you in good spirits. You be strong out there on your own boy. You are a grown man now,” he wrote. Marquise, seeing his father's comments, returned the sentiments in kind. “Didn’t think you knew how old I was, u missed a few birthdays. I’m happy to see you have kind words to say to me this time,” he responded.

Getting wind of their correspondence, Shaniqua Tompkins, Marquise's mother later intervened with a few unsavory comments of her own.

“Miserable, unstable, bum ass n***a! You’re so miserable! Go pick on them boys who put that hot led up in your a**! Oh! I forgot you like to pick on women and children,” she retorted. “Them boys in Brooklyn did you dirrty!! Go beat up your other baby mother, oh you did that already and you’re on 3 years probation. Go make sure [your] son’s motor skills are correct. Can he talk???”

John Singleton In Coma After Suffering From A Stroke

John Singleton is reportedly in a coma after suffering from a major stroke, TMZ reports.

The Boyz N the Hood filmmaker has reportedly been in the ICU since last weekend. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Singleton's mother, Sheila Ward, is asking a judge to appoint her temporary conservator of his work because he is "unable to properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, clothing, or shelter." Singleton was reportedly working on several projects and preparing to sign a lucrative settlement agreement at the time of his stroke, according to Ward.

As previously reported, Singleton suffered a stroke on April 17, after returning from Costa Rica. After experiencing problems with his legs, he reportedly checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he suffered a stroke in his hospital room.

'Empire' Makes History By Airing First Black Gay Wedding On Network TV

Wedding bells have just made their way into the history books. Last night (April 25), FOX's Empire became the first network television show to air a black gay wedding. Jamal and his fiancé Kai (Jussie Smollett and Toby Onwumere, respectively) jump the broom and swap vows in the episode titled "Never Doubt I Love."

As an added treat, Empire even tapped the legendary Chaka Khan to perform at the fictional star-studded wedding (Mario and Wood Harris even showed up) which, as evidenced by the episode BTS video, was a moment for everyone right to the stars of the show themselves. “Today’s wedding is special and controversial,” Khan said of using her voice for this particular cameo. “But my answer to all that is just love is love.”

Cast members Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe agree that Jamal and Kai's wedding might have just become the best Empire wedding.

While this doesn't necessarily take away from the controversy still surrounding Smollett's case in Chicago, it was a cause for celebration regarding diversity and representation on television nonetheless. As Ms. Khan said, right here and right now, the most important thing to note is that love is love.

Lizzo Will Appear In 'Hustlers' Alongside Cardi B And Jennifer Lopez

Lizzo continues to make waves as a musician, instrumentalist, body-positivity icon and booty-shaker extraordinaire. The artist– whose major-label debut Cuz I Love You is receiving praise from listeners and critics alike– will have a chance to put her twerking skills to the test.

According to reports, the Minnesota transplant is set to join the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Cardi B and Keke Palmer in the already-stacked lineup for the upcoming film, Hustlers. Deadline reports that this is Lizzo’s first live-action film, and her second film overall. She’ll be voicing a character in the upcoming animated musical film, Uglydolls.

Hustlers, which is set to be released by September 2019, is inspired by an article published in New York Magazine in 2016, which “follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.”

Additional actresses set to appear in the film include Fresh Off The Boat’s Constance Wu, Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart, Julia Stiles, Transparent’s Trace Lysette, Mercedes Ruehl, dancer Mette Towley and Orange Is The New Black’s Madeline Brewer.
