Rapper 50 Cent arrested in Saint Kitts

50 Cent was reportedly arrested this weekend for using profanity during a concert on the Caribbean’s Saint Kitts – which is illegal there.

The rapper (né Curtis Jackson), 40, was booked by police for using profanity in public after he said  the profanity during a show on the island Saturday night, TMZ reports.

According to TMZ, the rapper had reportedly been warned about using profanity, but in video apparently taken during the concert, he can clearly be heard shouting the obscenity.

However, 50 Cent’s rep Amanda Ruisi said in a statement to PEOPLE that the rapper hadn’t planned on performing that night.

“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,” the rep said.

While the star initially had to “surrender his travel documents” ahead of a court appearance on Monday, according to police, his rep told Yahoo News that the issue is already resolved — and he’s headed back to the U.S.
