CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. -- Rapper 50 Cent is free to take a vacation with his son after passing a court-ordered drug test.
The 33-year-old entertainer was in a Long Island courtroom Thursday to ask a judge for permission to take 11-year-old Marquise on a trip next month.
A drug test was ordered, and it came back clean.
Marquise lives with his mother, Shaniqua Tompkins. She is 50 Cent’s ex-girlfriend and blames 50 Cent for a fire that destroyed the Long Island mansion where she and the boy were living. He has denied the accusation.
Six people, including Tompkins and Marquise, were treated for smoke inhalation after the May blaze.
