50 Cent loses one of the most important people in his life, his grandmother.
If you're a fan of 50 Cent, you know what an important role his grandmother played in his life. 50 has previously spoken on how his grandmother, Beulah Jackson, was the person that cared for him the most. She raised him following the death of his mother, and so she became his mother-figure (50 and his many cousins all called her 'momma' too). Beulah even made an appearance in 50's in-depth sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, in which the rapper revealed that his grandma was so special to him, he was willing to give her foot massages and paint her toenails. Thus, we regret to report that she has passed away, according to multiple reports.
HipHop-N-More reports that 50 Cent's cousin revealed the news, taking to his Instagram to post a photo of himself and Beulah Jackson with the caption, "Will never forget you momma, I miss you already R.I.P my momma." 50 has yet to make any public comments about his grandmother's death.
We would like to extend our condolences to Fif and his family. Watch a segment from 50 and Beulah's interview with Oprah below.
[Update: 50 Speaks On Her Passing]
As we reported on last week, 50 Cent's grandmother, Beulah Jackson, passed away. The very special lady will surely be missed by Fif, who looked at her like a mother. In a recent interview with VIBE, 50 spoke on losing his grandmother and finding out that she passed away. Read those excerpts below.
How'd you find out about your grandmother's death? Were you in the middle of work?
I had to go to "Power" to rehearse the action sequences and I was on the treadmill, working with the stunt coordinators, when my aunt called me and told me I needed to come to the hospital. I had the chance to talk to her a little bit before she passed. My grandmama was coherent the whole time. I've seen a lot of people die around me but I saw them die on the corner that we were standing on. Outside is a different danger. It's like you go to the hospital, [my grandma's] up, she's there, she's alert. She responded to my voice and then after I see her, her blood pressure starts to drop and then she's gone.
There's speculation on the Internet that you and Ciara are back together.
Ciara is a really good friend of mine and she came to show me support when I lost my grandmother because she had her relationship with my grandmother. People don't know but we have been friends for about four years so that's why [people] are surprised to come and see her support. It's unfortunate that somebody would take a picture [of her at my grandmother's funeral]. You got people out there that are supposed to just follow and not have any significance at all. At the end, they look for any opportunity to take a photograph to get their followers up. Some things are supposed to be entertainment and some things are supposed to be part of your life. When your personal life become business, it gets interesting.
50 also posted a message on Instagram about the late Ms. Jackson, writing, "My angel (Beulah Jackson) God has blessed me with letting her see me win. She was proud of me, now how i see my self is all that matters."
