Jackson’s parents divorced when he was still young. Shaniqua sued 50 Cent following the divorce, demanding child support payment of $50 million. However, the lawsuit was dismissed by the judge which created a bitter relationship between the divorcees. The lawsuits and court battles made Marque’s childhood rocky and different from other children’s; this would later on transform the nature of his relationship with his father.
Marquise has enjoyed playing basketball ever since he was a child. His passion and love for the game made him the best prep school player in 2014 at St John Military Academy – he was 16 years old.

25 Cents, as most called him when he was a kid, made an appearance in “The New Breed,” which was 50 Cent’s video Documentary. He also appeared in the documentary short “A Portrait of an Artist: The Making of Get Rich or Die Tryin'”.

Marquise isn’t married. Rumors have it that he was previously dating singer Tyler Royale. Currently, he lives together with his sister and mother, with whom he is alleged to have a very close relationship.
Marquise Feud with His Father
Despite the fact that 50 Cent has his son’s (Marquise) name tattooed on his bicep, the duo have had an unstable relationship since 2008.
Marquise’s clash with his father began when he was 10 years old, in spring 2008. The feud was mainly centered around Curtis Jackson’s $4 million mansion in Long Island, which according to Shaniqua Thompson, was allegedly promised to her by her then husband, 50 Cent. Despite the alleged promise, 50 Cent made an attempt to evict her as soon as they were separated; a move that resulted in lawsuits and lengthy court battles.
On 30th May, the disputed mansion was set ablaze, which authorities classified as ‘suspicious.’ Despite the fact that 50 Cent was filming a movie in Arizona when this happened, Shaniqua insisted that he had caused the fire deliberately, and that he was trying to kill her together with Marquise.
Since then, Marquise hasn’t been getting along with his father, who had previously threatened to cut him off from his will.
The father-son clash re-ignited in 2020, when 50 Cent made a condescending remark about his son in a live Instagram post. 50 Cent had been asked if he had been in contact with Tekashi 6ix9ine after he had been released from the jail, a question that he responded to with a ‘no’. He further explained that it didn’t matter whether or not Tekashi had snitched, and that he (Tekashi) was far better than Marquise.
In another incident when 50 Cent was performing live on stage, rather than being backstage, Marquise wasn’t given a pass and was forced to sit in the audience.
When questioned about the matter, 50 Cent disowned Marquise, and went on to post on social media that a blood test had proved that Marquise was not his son had been taken. The source of their feud is not clear yet; however, it’s alleged that it all started when Marquise took Shaniqua’s side during his parents’ clash.
Marquise is 23 years old and is just starting his career. He uses his Instagram account as the platform which he flaunts his lush lifestyle. He has an estimated net worth of close to $1 million, as of mid-2021.
Marquise is a handsome artist who in his twenties, with an athletic body physique standing at 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall, and weighing about 135lbs (62kgs), with dark brown eyes and dark hair.
