50 Cent Employee Accused of Setting His Home on Fire

Published February 26, 2010

One of 50 Cent’s employees has been accused of setting his Long Island, NY home on fire.

The Republican American reports that Connecticut resident Shana Chin testified in court Thursday (Feb. 25) against Dwayne McKenzie, an associate of 50, claiming he assaulted her while visiting him at 50’s Long Island mansion. 

In her testimony, however, she then revealed that McKenzie often talked about setting the home 50’s ex-girlfriend, Shaniqua Tompkins lived in, on fire, shortly after Chin claims she was assaulted. 50 Cent was not specifically named in the case.

In May 2008, 50 Cent’s $1.4 million estate was mysteriously set on fire, sending both his ex-girlfriend and their son, Marquise, to the hospital. At the time of the fire, 50 was in the midst of a court battle to evict Tompkins from the house.
