50 Cent has managed to find a new brand of legal trouble, this one related to his pottymouth: It seems that Fiddy, real name Curtis Jackson, was performing Saturday at the St. Kitts Music Festival, when he dropped a "motherf---in'" as he performed "P.I.M.P." in front of some 40,000 fans, reports TMZ. That was sufficient to get him and a member of his entourage charged with using profanity in public, which, yes, is illegal on the Caribbean island, notes Rolling Stone. It's not the first time: Both sites note that DMZ got arrested for cursing in 2003; it set him back a $376 fine. Both Jackson and his aide are out on bail, notes the AP, but they have to stick around until Monday when the courts are open. (More 50 Cent stories.)
