Police Deny 50 Cent Has Been Cleared In Fire Investigation
50 Cent has been reprimanded by New York police chiefs after alleging he has been cleared of having any involvement in the fire that destroyed his Long Island home.
The In Da Club hitmaker's mansion, which his ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins and their 11-year-old son Marquise called home, was set alight in May 2008.
50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, had been in the process of getting Tompkins evicted from the property just months before the incident, prompting his bitter ex to suggest he was behind the blaze.
He denied the accusations and recently claimed he was in the clear with cops investigating the fire.
A post on his website ThisIs50.com said: "The police department and insurance investigators ruled that there is absolutely no proof or evidence suggesting that Curtis Jackson or any affiliated parties were involved.
"Curtis Jackson has just been cleared of all the accusations. The investigation will continue until the guilty party is found."
But Suffolk County police detective Thomas Wieland insists no one has been cleared in the ongoing case: "That fire is still under investigation. It hasn't been closed either way."
