(Newser) – 50 Cent has slapped the mother of his 11-year-old son with a $20 million defamation lawsuit, the New York Daily News reports. The rapper's ex has publicly accused him of being behind the blaze that forced her out of the home they once shared. 50 Cent—barred from contacting his ex by a restraining order issued yesterday—denies the allegations and complains she hasn't let him see his son since the fire.
