50 Cent's $50 Million Lawsuit Is Thrown Out

Good news for Fitty! He doesn’t owe his ex-girlfriend $50 million! A state Supreme Court justice threw out the lawsuit brought against him by ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins.

Shaniqua claimed 50 Cent promised her half of his earnings for the rest of his life, plus the house that he bought.

Turns out that house burned down, and Shaniqua found herself houseless penniless. That would make any woman angry! But not entitled to $50 million!

A statement from Fitty’s lawyer says "Ms. Tompkins's claims pertaining to a $50 million verbal contract were entirely frivolous. In dismissing the case before trial, the court is sending a clear message. This is a complete and total victory for 50."

And it seems like 50 expected this outcome all along. He said in a statement, "I'm very thankful for this decision. I knew that once the facts were heard that justice would prevail. I hope now that we can put this behind us and move forward with our lives."
