Rapper 50 CENT has been ordered not to sell the charred remains of his New York home until investigators have decided what caused the fire that destroyed it last month (May08).

The Long Island estate, which is owned by 50 Cent and occupied by his former lover Shaniqua Tompkins and their 10-year-old son Marquise, was set ablaze in what New York cops have called a "highly suspicious" inferno. Shaniqua later accused the rapper of starting the fire himself.

On Tuesday (10Jun08), a New York judge declared 50 Cent could not sell or demolish the property until the investigation was complete.

The rapper was also ordered to put any insurance money he gets from the house into a trust account until his battle with Tompkins over the home is resolved.

50 Cent is currently battling to evict Shaniqua, while she is fighting to keep the $2 million (GBP1 million) property, the CM reported.
