50 Cent deserves to be clapped for and thanked as he touched the hearts of a family whose teenage girl was gunned down on the bus in Queens this week in an extra-ordinary way.
A 14-year-old D’aja Robinson was killed by a stray bullet after leaving a Sweet 16 party last weekend.
The tragic incident caught the attention of many, including 50, who reached out to her parents and offered to pay for the funeral. Though this will not bring their child back, it surely is a relief.
50 Cent wrote on his Facebook:
‘People always try and paint negative images about me. I’m the most genuine down to earth person and I didn’t forget where I came from. I came through for baby girl by providing a horse and carriage for her. She was pretty, innocent and didn’t deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia Robinson.’
After footing the funeral bill, 50 Cent showed up at the funeral to mourn with the parents and pay his respect.
The family posted:
I would like to thank 50cent for coming and showing his respects at Daja Robinson’s Funeral. R.I.P baby girl, we all mourn your death!!!!
50 Cent’s business and personal relationship with boxer-Floyd Mayweather Jnr. has come to an end. 50 Cent decided to tell the world about his break up with Floyd Mayweather last night.
Using his twitter account; he sent the below tweets…
Though it is not clear as to what really caused the break up, rumour has it that, the break up was unavoidable the moment 50 started picking business moves with Mayweather’s boxing rival-Manny Pacquiao.
Whatever it is, we surely won’t be seeing Mayweather and Fiddy doing it together again.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has be let out of jail this morning after serving about 2 months out of his 3 months sentence for behaving good behind bars.
Floyd was sentenced to jail in December over a domestic violence incident in 2012, when he beat up his baby mama in front of their kids. However, the judge allowed Floyd to turn himself in on June 1st, so he could fight Miguel Cotto on May 5th, a fight which Floyd Mayweather won.
This morning, Floyd’s boys including 50 Cent picked him up from jail…
Mayweather, who’s serving a three- month sentence for domestic battery against an ex-girlfriend, paid for the 10-person dinner at N9ne Steakhouse at the Palms Casino Resort Wednesday night, where Jackson was presented with a cake in the shape of a $30,000 alligator Balenciaga bag.
Mayweather also gave Jackson a diamond watch, bracelet and ring, which friend and dinner guest 50 Cent photographed and posted on his Twitter feed. Jackson, an aspiring actress, will star with Fitty in the upcoming movie “Freelancers,” which stars Robert De Niro and Forest Whitaker, due out in August.
Fitty also acquired a New York promoter’s license for boxing last week, and recently founded TMT (The Money Team) Promotions with Mayweather. Reports swirled yesterday that TMT would promote fighters including Mayweather once he gets out of jail, which is expected to happen Aug. 3.
50 cent cannot be predicted…Why name your dog ‘Oprah’? Last friday, 50 made a guest appearance on ABC’s ‘The View’ to discuss his new anti-bullying book-Playground.
Check out some of the things he talked about whiles on there below
On whether he’s ever accidentally told someone ‘I Love You’
Probably the first time, every time. I think that when a man says ‘I love you’ the first time, he means ‘This really feels good’. It’s like “This friendship is good”. Take it like something really interesting is happening and I am confused. After [a man] says it a few times to you and he says it to himself, then he believes it. It’s such a big commitment. It does mean something.
On naming his dog ‘Oprah’
It started out negative ’cause I thought Oprah didn’t like Hip-Hop culture. I got the dog and now I love Oprah. i started to feel like I didn’t like her and I hadn’t met her.
In this month’s edition of JET magazine, the man of many entertaining talents, Fifty cent dishes the dirt on his upcoming book ‘50 Cent Playground: The Mostly True Story of a Reformed Bully’. During the interview 50 explains that he wrote the book he hopes will encourage kids to think about the reasons behind bullying and how it impacts communities. He tells the American weekly urban magazine:
“I was [a bully] at different points during my childhood,” the 36-year-old shares. “I was dealing with my emotions the wrong way. From a child’s perspective, you don’t understand. As an adult, you get that’s not the way to deal with things.”
“The story follows Butterball, a youngster who hits a kid on the playground… with a sock full of batteries. Butterball comes from a broken household and is dealing with relocating and feelings of powerlessness. “It’s for everyone,” he adds”.
“My son is 15, and I have conversations with him about things like this. He isn’t being bullied, but he meets people who have expectations of him because of the aggressive energy that I have and the content of the material I create. They look at him like he’s supposed to be like that,” he shares. “But he’s not. He doesn’t even know what it feels like to need for something. When we didn’t have any money, he was too young to notice.”
Still kinda surprises me that the likes of fiddy and Lil Kim have fans in Australia of all places but then again…why not. They hot right? Check out their joint performance in Perth, Australia earlier this week. Lil Kim of course had to give fiddy and sample during the track…
