A proud papa of three? 50 Cent claimed on Sunday, April 24, that he has a third son he didn't know about, but his rep tells Us Weekly that the announcement is not what it appears to be.

The hip-hop mogul, 40, took to Instagram this weekend to share his supposed paternity news. "My life is full of surprises. This little guy is my son DAVIAN," he captioned a pic of himself standing next to a young boy with a tear-stained face. "He started crying, I was thinking why you crying i gotta pay for this s--t. LMAO."

50's rep, however, tells Us Weekly that Davian is not actually the rapper's child.

Nevertheless, the rapper continued to troll his followers and various outlets on Sunday night. After posting his fake paternity news, 50 then followed up with another post — a supposed update from one of Davian's schoolteachers, who praised the fifth-grade student as "one of if not our top student." In the letter, the educator recommended Davian for a summer program for exceptionally gifted students.

"I JUST GOT THIS," 50 captioned the screen-capped email. "DAMN I NEVER DID This good. This kid is smarter then a motherf--ker !!! I'm a get Big Floyd to give him some hands."

In actuality, the entrepreneur is the dad of sons Marquise, 18, and Sire, 3, both from previous relationships. He shares his older son with Shaniqua Tompkins and Sire with his ex Daphne Joy, who is now dating Jason Derulo. His younger son, Sire, has a modeling contract of his own.
