Rapper 50 Cent has cut his son and ex-girlfriend out of his will following a vicious family feud.

On Monday reports emerged suggesting the Candy Shop hitmaker had disowned Marquise, his teenage son with Shaniqua Tompkins, via text after screen shots of their private phone conversation were leaked online.

During their chat, the hip-hop star, real name Curtis Jackson, insinuated the 16-year-old wasn’t his rightful child by asking him to get a DNA test, before adding, “I will have nothing to do with you. Don’t text me ever again… Delete my number.”

A short while later he took to Twitter to announce he had adjusted his estate plan to exclude Marquise and his ex from his will, proclaiming he would leave the majority of his assets to the daughter of his tragic former manager, Tiffany Lighty, an aspiring filmmaker who recently starred in a Forbes magazine photo shoot with the Grammy winner.

He wrote, “I rewrote my will today now when I pass away all my physical property’s and MOST of my money go’s to charities and TIFFANY LIGHTY so when I’m done she can be 50cent (sic).”

Afterwards, the 38-year-old used his social networking account to clarify reports suggesting the text messages had been intended for Marquise, insisting Tompkins had also been using the boy’s phone to communicate with the rapper.

He tweeted, “That was his mother texting me as him.she sold that to a web site.she hate me for Winning, it’s hard to replace me. Read the text carefully you will see what I’m saying (sic).”

50 Cent has had a rough few weeks – earlier this month he was charged with domestic violence after allegedly attacking his former girlfriend, Daphne Joy. He was also dropped from the performance bill at an upcoming Major League Baseball event amid the controversy.
