50 Cent Wins Row Over Child Support
by Staff

50 Cent has been handed victory after a judge ruled in his favour in a dispute with his ex-girlfriend over child support for their son Marquis.

The superstar rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, took Shaniqua Tomkins to court after refusing to agree to her requests for more money for the upkeep of the 10-year-old.

Tomkins previously asked for $50,000 (£25,000)-a-month but was granted just half of that sum - $25,000 (£12,500)-a-month - when the court viewed her and her son's expenses.

But that figure was reduced further earlier this week (begs11Feb08), and Tomkins will now only receive $6,700 (£3,350)-a-month from the multi-millionaire In Da Club hitmaker, reports the New York Post's gossip column PageSix.

Jackson's lawyer Brett Kimmel says, "My client and I are very happy with the ruling." (c) WENN
