If the late firebug Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes taught us anything, it's that somebody burned 50 Cent's Dix Hills house down two weeks ago, that accidents of the scorching variety in cases of estranged hip-hop couples don't just happen. And seeing as 50's ex Shaniqua Tompkins, the couple's son Marquis, and others were treated for smoke inhalation following the blaze, we're going to assume, fairly or no, that if it's a case of arson, it's likely linked to 50 via some sketchy associate and not Tompkins. So then, in the aftermath of having burned off the $2.4m nose to spite the ex's bitchy face, what's an increasingly terrible rapper to do now that his court-suspended dream of evicting his son and ex from the house is no longer an issue? Sell the whole goddamn property, obviously! What's left of it, anyway. But not so fast, Mr. Cent. A judge has ordered that 50 must hold off on the sale of the property until an investigation is completed, and that all the many millions he'll see in insurance cash be put into a trust until everything's settled with Tompkins.
