Marquise Jackson took aim at the rapper in a post on Facebook page on May 18, criticizing his famous father for failing to show up for his big day at his private school in Atlanta.

Alongside a photo of the youngster, dressed in the traditional cap and gown, hugging his mother Shaniqua Tompkins, he wrote, "Yea (sic) I broke down. I was really excited to see my pops at my graduation but he never showed up smh (shaking my head). My sister and mama is always there for me just know that you wasn't. I did it without you."

However, 50 Cent has now addressed the controversy and blamed his ex for turning what should have been a private family matter into headline-grabbing news.

During an appearance on "106 & Park" this week, he explained, "I haven't received an invitation. When he graduated, I was in Budapest (in Hungary) on a movie with Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Jason Statham. I think, at some points, the reason why it actually comes out is because his mom is going to TMZ. I wish she'd find someone so she could leave me alone."

50 Cent also shared details about his struggle to balance his work and personal life so he can maintain a relationship with his son.

He said, "It's tough because you travel a lot and you move around. You still have to be able to provide those things that are really detrimental to a child being able to have a decent upbringing. A nice place to stay, private schools, and everything else they would actually require to have a good education. It's tough because my relationship with my older son is dictated by his actual mom."
