You can find 50 Cent in da… court paying fines for using curse words. The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, had to pay up this weekend after repeatedly saying the F-word during a performance at a St. Kitts festival, but is now “on his way home,” his rep confirms to EW.

“Mr. Jackson was only booked to host the show. When he arrived at the festival, organizers asked him to perform, he obliged, and used the DJ they had there,” his rep said in a statement. “Unfortunately, they didn’t have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance. The show was a great success and he will make sure for future trips to St. Kitts that he leaves the ‘motherf—ers’ in the United States.”

50’s not the first rapper to get in trouble on the Caribbean island: In 2003, DMX was arrested at the same music festival for uttering obscenities — a misdemeanor in St. Kitts, according to the Associated Press — during his show.
