Months after the Long Island residence that housed his ex-girlfriend and son suspiciously burned down, 50 Cent finally met with officials to discuss the fire. "50 and his attorneys met with Suffolk County authorities regarding the fire that destroyed 50's house," Fiddy's lawyers said in a statement. "The meeting had been arranged weeks ago. 50 is eager to review the findings of the investigation, when it is concluded." Even though he was in Louisiana filming a movie at the time, 50 was immediately linked to the "suspicious" fire, perhaps because his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins told reporters, "He said that he was going to have someone come kill me, and see what he does? This is what he did." 50 Cent denied any involvement and even sued Tompkins for defamation. 50 is in the middle of a custody battle with Tompkins over their son, Marquise, a matter that will be back in court next month.
