There's no place like home – especially when someone is trying to kick you out. So says the ex-girlfriend of rapper 50 Cent, Shaniqua Tomkins, who claims the singer is trying to evict her and their 10-year-old son, Marquis, from their Long Island NY home, the Associated Press reports.

In court papers filed in Manhattan, Tomkins accuses the rapper, 32, (real name: Curtis Jackson) of breach of contract, claiming he had promised to buy a $2.4 million Dix Hills house for her and son, Marquis Jackson, then put the house under his own name.

Tomkins, who lived with the hip-hop star for four years until their split in 2001, was also in court a few months ago when she tried to up the child support payments to $50,000. But the judge’s ruling in February whittled the monthly amount down to $6,700 per month.

According to a source close to 50 Cent: "[Shaniqua] and her extended family – her son and her new lover – are living in the Long Island house which 50 is also paying for. So he's paying double for housing. She's supposed to be finding separate housing for her new family, and she hasn’t, and that’s why [they’re] in the situation [they're] in.”

A rep for the rapper tells PEOPLE: "We don’t comment on pending litigation."
