The mother of 50 Cent’s son, Shaniqua Tompkins, was on her way to netting her celebrity by way of a new reality series, only midway through taping 50 swooped in and stopped her from taking part. Not surprisingly, 50 didn’t want Shaniqua exposing anything related to their son much less their own dirt as a former couple. I’m assuming this request came with a nice check.

Starter Wives is a new TLC reality show that will focus on six women who have dated, been married to and have children with famous men, but the show was originally taped with seven women.
“Shaniqua Tompkins started out taping and was really a great on the show, but after she started 50 Cent got mad and made her stop,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, decided after filming began that he didn’t want her to reveal anything about his personal life or their child on the show, so he pulled the plug.
“Shaniqua had already filmed a lot for the show, but she didn’t want to fight with Curtis so she decided to bow out of the show before things got ugly.”
She is the rapper’s ex-girlfriend and mother of his son, but the two were never married and have not been getting along in recent year.
