Uh-oh, this is no good, 50 Cent. The New York rapper was hit with charges of domestic violence and vandalism after a dispute with the mother of his son, Shaniqua Tompkins, in Toluca Lake, Calif.

According to TMZ, the scene unfolded on June 23 when the LAPD was called to Tompkins’ condo after she called saying she was locked in the bathroom after getting a fight with the rapper. Curtis Jackson reportedly got so mad, in fact, that he kicked the door down, which injured Tompkins. Yikes, control your temper, dude.

Fiddy reportedly caused $7,100 worth of damage after he broke furniture, a TV and other items around the home. According to officials, the rapper was quick to leave the scene before the police got there. Of course, 50 and his camp have remained mum on the whole issue, according to TMZ.

The charges — one count of domestic violence and four counts of vandalism (all misdemeanors) — could result in five years in jail and fines upwards of $46,000. 50 Cent is set to appear in court on July 22.

Funny enough, TMZ shot 50 Cent coming out of a restaurant in Beverly Hills, Calif. and it was clear that the rapper was anything but a happy camper. Guess it had something to do with some problems at home…

UPDATE: 50 Cent has denied the allegations made against him.
