Is 50 Cent's 'Shot 9 Times' Story a Lie?

Fif's baby mama airs him out on Instagram, blames Tupac.

Usually it’s not a good idea to clap back at 50 Cent on Instagram because when it comes to trolling, he’s king.

Shaniqua Tompkins, mother of one of his sons, has been known to hold her own though, and recently responded to Fif’s assertion that she’s not parenting correctly by attempting to bullet hole one of his signature claims: that he got shot nine times.


"When you post something and delete it shows how much Of a coward you are !!" She wrote in an Instagram post’s caption, captured by Baller Alert. “I know [sic] longer wanted a relationship with you! You’re a fraud and you’re upset I know it ! You created this fictitious character and you try to discredit me because I know the real! I know you made up you got shot 9 times and it was actually 5 because you didn’t want to be compared to Tupac! Remember I was there! I went with you to the police percent [sic] to get an order of protection out if Ja Rule, irvGotti and his brother Chris.”

If you remember, 50 claimed he was shot nine times in 2000, infamously four times more than Tupac was at Quad Studios in 1994. On his 2002 album Guess Who’s Back?, he raps that he was shot nine times on the song “F**k You,” which in part garnered him special attention in preparation for his landmark 2003 LP Get Rich or Die Tryin’. And he released a song as recently as this year titled "9 Shots."

However, during a 2012 interview with Oprah, 50 was asked to recall being shot. He said at the time he didn’t realize his legs were broken during the incident and when adding up the bullet wounds he received, failed to count nine. He also did the same during an interview with AllHipHop in 2009. During that, he stopped counting at six and said he couldn’t remember the rest. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
