As Shaniqua Tompkins, the mother of 50 Cent's son Marquise, returned to the burned down home after she was hospitolized from the fire, she spoke with reporters. Tompkins made many statements to the press. When a reporter asked her if she thinks 50 could have done something like setting the fire, she said "yes I think he would, he's obsessed and if he can't have something, no one can." Shaniqua went on to say that 50 said he was going to have someone come kill her and to 'watch what he does'. Tomkins went on to say that 50 has made no attempt to see how his son is after the fire.
Tomkins told TMZ that she heard "someone" come into the house this morning at 4 AM, shortly before the fire broke out around an hour later. Her lawyer, Paul Catsandonis, said that his client is "traumatized" by the fire and that the kids are similarly in total shock. Six people, including Tompkins and their 10-year-old son Marquise, were in the house. They all were transported to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.
