The mother of a Brooklyn teen is blaming 50 Cent for the merciless bullying of her son, and is now suing the Department of Education for $5.5 million.

Myasia Dickerson believes her 14-year-old son Davian Fraser’s friendship with 50 Cent has made him a target, the New York Daily News reports. Now, Dickerson has filed a claim against the city, accusing Williamsburg Charter School of not protecting her son after he was regularly attacked by fellow students. 

After the students learned about Fraser’s relationship with the rapper at the beginning of the school year, some of them started to harass him. “It caused a big uproar in the school,” Dickerson told the outlet. “The kids started to follow my son around, tried to put him on Snapchat, tried to take videos of him. They were following him to the train station.” 

During Fraser’s lunch break on Dec. 16, four classmates came up to him near a stairwell and started punching him. “He was attacked from behind as he tried to walk away," Dickerson said. “He was punched in the head and then the student proceeded to fight him and then he slammed my son’s head onto the ground.”

A police report said in another incident, a student followed Fraser to his locker, and when he went up to the fifth floor to look for a security officer, no one was there. The student following Fraser hit him in the back of the head and slammed his head into the stairwell floor, according to police. No one was arrested.

Fraser has sustained injuries to his head and neck, and has endured emotional and psychological trauma, according to Dickerson’s claim. She faults the school, adding that one time, before an attack, Fraser sought refuge in a classroom but the teacher turned him away.

Fraser met Fif in 2016, and soon after, the boy became known as the rapper’s “third son” after Fif shared a few photos of Fraser on Instagram. “My life is full of surprises,” 50 wrote in a since-deleted post. “This little guy is my son DAVIAN. He started crying, I was thinking why you crying i gotta pay for this shit. LMAO.”

In April 2016, 50’s rep shared a statement with E! News that denied Fraser is his son. “Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson does not have a third son,” the statement read. “However he was immediately drawn to this young boy’s story much like his own, the 10-year-old is growing up under rough circumstances so he has decided to help mentor him and get him the education he deserves.”
