50 Cent has addressed the longstanding rumours surrounding the sexuality of his late mother, and confirms that she was a lesbian.
The 'New Day' rapper sat down for a candid chat with celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, during which he discussed being brought up by his beloved grandmother following the death of his mother at a young age.
Perez quizzed Fiddy on the rumours that his mother had a female lover, and finally got an answer from the rapper after years of silence.
"My mom was a lesbian. Yeah, she liked women. My whole childhood was like that," Fiddy admitted.
"It's two different things too - from a female perspective, when you see two females together, you think, oh, they're just girlfriends, they're close. But, with my mom, the male was missing," he went on to explain.
"So, when you're that small, that's all you interpret it as you don't see anything that would indicate that there's other things going on."
The 36-year-old then revealed that his grandmother had to explain the nature of his mother's relationships with women once he was old enough to understand.
"But later, my grandmother - she told me that kiss was a little different from all the other kisses you saw," he said.
