Talk about net worth! 50 Cent shut down Toys “R” Us this past weekend just so that his son could go on a shopping spree.
Earlier this month, Sire Jackson told his father that he wanted the whole of Toys “R” Us for Christmas.
“I want the whole store of Toys ‘R’ Us,” Sire told his dad over the phone. “For all the toooooys … I want Toys ‘R’ Us … the whole store.”
“I have to work harder,” the G-Unit mogul told his fans, “What the f*ck,” 50 Cent continued. “The whole store.”
Well, it looks like 50 came through for his son after all. The rapper didn’t buy the whole of Toys R Us, but he did shell out $100,000 to rent out an entire Toys ‘R’ Us this weekend, allowing the seven-year-old to shop until he dropped!
Sire’s mom shared some video footage of the Christmas surprise on her Instagram stories. “Christmas came early,” Sire’s mom could be heard saying in the video. “Daddy got Sire all the Legos—but not just all of the Legos, all of Toys ‘R’ Us … he’s in utter shock right now and disbelief.”
“Sire was like. oh sh$t you really got the whole store. He was in shock, walking around.he said let me get this straight I can get what ever I want?” 50 wrote on his own social media page.
The Toys R Us store that the rap mogul rented out is located in New Jersey and is one of two Toys ‘R’ Us brick-and-mortars currently open. The beloved toy chain closed down about 700 locations a couple of years ago after declaring bankruptcy.
The chain’s parent company, Tru Kids Brands, partnered with retailer b8ta to open the stores in The Galleria in Houston, Texas, and in Westfield Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey.
“We have an incredible opportunity to entirely reimagine the Toys ‘R’ Us brand in the U.S. and are thrilled to partner with b8ta and key toy vendors to create a new, highly-engaging retail experience designed for kids, families and to better fit within today’s retail environment,” Tru Kids Brands CEO Richard Barry said in a press release.
