Rapper 50 Cent has been brought up on charges of domestic violence for allegedly attacking his baby momma and damagng her home. Get the deets on the incident inside....
The L.A. City Attorney's office has charged "In Da Club" rapper 50 Cent with 1 count of domestic violence and 4 counts of misdemeanor vandalism.
According to TMZ, on June 23, the rapper is accused of kicking his baby momma, Shaniqua Tompkins, and causing nearly $7,100 worth of damage to her Toluca Lake, Ca. condo. If convicted on all counts, he could face up to five years in jail and $46,000 in fines.
While we're waiting for additional details to emerge, this incident isn't out of character for the rapper. You'll recall that there was a reported incident of 50's entourage trashing the office of Shaniqua's lawyer and there was suspicion around who REALLY burned down Shaniqua's home in 2008.
We'll keep you posted.
