American rapper, actor and businessman, Curtis James Jackson III, professionally known as 50 Cent, has opened up about his relationship with his estranged son, Marquise Jackson.
In a recent Instagram live chat with media personality Van Lathan, 50 Cent spoke about how his fame and fortune caused the falling-out with his son.
"It is sad, it's a sad situation," he said.
He continued: "When you pray for success, you don't necessarily pray for the things that come with it. It's no such thing as success without jealousy without envy or entitlement."

He also went on to say that he would pay over $1 million in child support and that Marquise "had everything I didn't have". When asked if he loved his son, 50 Cent said that he "used to".

The rapper continued, "I didn't think that success would cost me my firstborn but it's the situation it is like, my grandfather used to say, 'If it rattles like a snake and slithers like a snake, is it a snake or do you need to be bit?' "
Only a short while ago, the controversial rapper revealed he'd pick rapper 6ix9ine over his own son.
He said during his Instagram Live:
"Nah, I ain’t heard from 6ix9ine. He’s his mother’s child now. He told on everybody. He better than Marquise, though. I’ll take him before I take my actual biological son. F*ck that n***a."
Predictably, Marquise was not pleased with this and responded to his father's shade, slamming his for 'claiming a rat'.
