50cent explains why he didn't attend his son's high school graduation

A week after he was criticized for not attending his oldest son's high school graduation, rapper 50cent says there's a good reason why he wasn't there. He said aside from not being invited, he was busy at a movie location...

In an appearance on BET's 106 and Park yesterday, 50 Cent explains;
"My son -- I haven't received an invitation. When he graduated, I was in Budapest on a movie with Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Jason Statham. I think, at some point, the reason why it actually comes out is because his mom is going to TMZ. I wish she'd find someone so she could leave me alone."

What's wrong is wrong. Even if they have a difficult relationship, stuff like thes are milestones in your kid's life. It must have been hard on the boy. Like why should you need invitation to your kids graduation 50? That's the lamest excuse, apparently they have little or no communication.

50 grew up without his parents, apparently he doesn't understand the importance of being there esp for a kid he's got issues with. Y'all cut him some slack a beg.

If he cared, he would have known about the graduation without being invited, and he would have made time to attend, all this excuse were because he never cared

STERN said...

Oh Lord! Linda sometimes ur news can be quite annoying. How does he not going for his son's graduation affect me?

Anonymous said...

BS. When the story first broke, he was saying Marquise's mother asked him not to attend so the boy could have his moment. He's beefing with his kid. That's why he wasn't there.

which responsible father will be waiting for an invitation to attend his own son graduation? even if u weren't invited u should hv given him a surprise visit. it is your responsibility to look out for him if u really care.

zoe said...

Celebrities and their drama. He should buy his son a wonder grad gift.

Anonymous said...

Not saying he's right but maybe he really does need an invitation, due to a restraining order or something...you can't tell. Hope he makes it up for the lad...fathers are really very important in any child's life.

This man needs to find a way to relate with his kids without always dragging their mom into it. He isn't helping himself nor the child

Don't neglect your children no matter what. You were to invite people to your son's graduation ceremony. Are you sure you paid his school fees. I pity you.

This excuse by 50cent is too lame how can you ever say you didn't attend bcos you were not invited OMG! When you need your son to start inviting you it shows you are not responsible for him and that is pretty bad in itself. He should just man up and apologize.

Lol. Abi oh

Since there was no invitation for him...he wasn't wanted.

And why are you pple condemning him,if may ask how many of you can boast that your parent s were present at your grad. Ceremony. Remove the log in your eye so that u can see clearly to remove the log in other pple eye. 50sent never hard the privileged to get a good edu. He never knew his father. His grandparent took care of him with the little they hard, on his guns issue,who are you to judge him,let God judge him. Beside he has made name for himself,he is vry talented,he can sing and even act. When you talk of pple in the music industry in us. His name must be mentioned. That is one thing his haters can never change

Dats thr stuffs in US! U broke up with ur wife....d kids staying with thr mama,U got to seek invitation before u see them....50 was right, any High school in d state will give u invitation for τ̣̣ђё member of the family u can bring along with U! If he couldn't invited his own popz, and her Mama can't sent d invitation to him.....why shouting on social network?

QUEEN Bsterry said...

i can't believe 50cent actually replied his own son via social web. Extremely demeaning. Obodo oyinbo life sef

Anonymous said...

Idiat the son probably doesn't want him around and u think d best thing is for him to come there and ruin the day for d boy, @Linda most of Ur readers re very olodo o no deductive reasoning @all

Dlapikin said...

Linda you should let your readers know that 50 and the son live in separate homes and that in the USA most schools require a ticket to attend graduation. So if you are not informed of the graduation or handed a ticket, you cannot attend. You can't buy those graduation tickets in most schools and even when they do sell them they set a limit per student and you have to manage your guest within those tickets. The rest of the family must meet you at the reception. So yes if Fifty was not invited good chances are even if he knew and had showed up he would not have gotten inside.

So people will come n be judging 50 cent okay how many people's fathers have attended their graduations here in 9ja? between most parents don't even know when their kids graduate here becs people be having extra years like mad. sometimes I don't understand how someone's personal life became news jeez!!! 50cent's son and baby mama should learn to keep family issues private abeg haba!!! must they run to paparazzi every time? If he dosnt wana be part of ur life let him and do your own part for Christ sake, some people dnt even know their Dads and they turn out so well get over it. If his father wasn't rich will he be making all this noise?

Dlapikin, as a tuition paying parent, he could call the school to request tix. They would accommodate a rich celebrity.
