If you’re wondering how 50 Cent can give you play by play on other people’s situations but not know his own son's graduation date, his ex-girlfriend/son’s mother Shaniqua Tompkins seems to be just as confused as we all are. 

In her first interview since 50 was a no-show at her son’s graduation, Shaniqua stopped by V-103’s Ryan Cameron Morning Show to shed some light on who the real 50 Cent is. She talked about how 50 blocked her from being on a reality show, how he could have gotten the information about their son’s graduation the same way she did and she also touched on 50 “disowning” his son via text message.

Here are the highlights:

On if she invited 50 Cent to his son’s graduation:
“I didn’t know a parent needed an invitation to the graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children graduate May-June-ish.”

She added,
“He is privy to the same information that I am privy to as a parent. You can call the school, you can ask. Or have your assistant call. There were no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. And being that he says he pays tuition, which he doesn’t, he should have had a first class ticket. He doesn’t pay tuition, he pays child support.”

On if she wants 50’s lifestyle:
“We all want the finer things in life but I left him. I knew when I left him I was leaving a lifestyle so it’s not like he left me, I left him.”

On her not working since 2000.
“I had a job with TLC network and [50] came and stopped that. I had a deal with a reality show. The show was canceled but everyone got paid their full contract but me. So you say, ‘Get a job’ but I had one. TLC sent me a 1099. I filed taxes. I had one.”

On why she doesn’t answer 50 Cent’s phone calls now:
“Prior to those calls (and thank God for screenshots) I spoke with him and we spoke for a couple of hours on the phone. And when you feel like you can’t get through to a person, I feel like I know how to set boundaries…I’m not going to waste my time. And he’s always going in what happened in the relationship, Marquise is never the main focus. He never takes responsibility for his actions.”

On why 50 is lashing out and “hurting”:

“I think me leaving him reinforce all those abandonments issues he suffered as a child. I think that’s why he’s so angry.”

On the last time he has seen his son:
“You haven’t seen your son in almost two years. Matter fact, this month makes two years. He hasn’t seen his son since May 2012. He hasn’t spoken to Marquise since the text messages where he told him ‘F*ck you,’ ‘I have another child,’ ‘Lose my number’ and Marquise hasn’t spoken to him since. “

On 50 being abusive:
“He [Maruqise] saw I left an abusive situation.” She said Marquise saw 50 hit her and when her daughter saw him hit her she decided to leave. She said he was hitting her one minute and then crying like a baby in her lap the next.

On why she left 50:
“I can’t say money changes a person. I was the girl that was on his grandmother’s stoop when he got shot. He went to my mother’s house to heal. I went to work when my son was four months old while he was sitting home being daddy day care, watching Sesame Street and Little Bill. He has created this persona. This 50 Cent character. I don’t know this person. It reminds me of CB4. No I don’t know this person.”

In an interview with E!, Djimon dished about having to explain to his son that he’s playing a villain in his new movie How to Train Your Dragon 2 saying,

"I kind of have to prep him," the Blood Diamond star told me yesterday while promoting the movie at the Carlton Hotel. "He's not quite aware that I'm playing a bad guy. He hasn't seen me playing a bad guy. That's going to be interesting."

After wedding guests shared photobooth pics from the reception, new pics of the media hungry couple have surfaced as they said their “I Do’s” in front of a massive wall of flowers at the historic Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. If you look closely in the top picture, you can see little North watching her parents all smiles as they trekked down the aisle.

In a first look from inside the ceremony, Kanye and Kim share a kiss at the altar after being announced as Mr. & Mrs. West. In another look, Kim shows off the front and back of her white lace Givenchy Haute Couture gown.

The newlyweds’ reception came complete with a four-course meal and 7-tiered wedding cake. According to E!, Kim did a wardrobe change at the reception, slipping into a short cream-colored Balmain dress.

During the reception, Yeezy stood in front of family and friends for nearly 20 minutes to gush about his new wife. Kris & Bruce Jenner also gave speeches during the reception and it was reported Bruce got teary-eyed as he spoke. How nice.

Just hope they didn't do all of this for nothing...
