2008_05_50cent.jpgRapper 50 Cent's ex-girlfriend accused him of arson and much worse after the house he owns and she lives in burned down yesterday. Shaniqua Tompkins, who is the mother of 50 Cent's 10-year-old son Marquise, told reporters, "He's trying to kill me and his own child. He told me so."

The former couple had been battling about the $2.4 million home in Dix Hills. A housing judge agreed that 50 Cent, aka Curtis Jackson, owned the home and could force Tompkins out, but Tompkins filed a $50 million breach of contract lawsuit. Earlier in the week, the pair met in at her lawyer's office to give depositions, and the office was trashed, after 50 Cent's crew allegedly tangled with Tompkins' current boyfriend and others.

50 Cent's lawyer denied all claims, "Any suggestion that Mr. Jackson had anything whatsoever to do with the fire at his home is outrageous and offensive," pointing out the rapper was in Louisiana filming a movie, and added, "My client categorically denies that there was ever a fight between ... [him and Tompkins] in connection with the house or otherwise." Hmm, then how to explain the video TMZ has of them fighting on a Manhattan street on Monday afternoon?
