50 Cent has been left fearing for his life over an alleged police threat.
The 'In Da Club' hitmaker - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - has spoken out after reports the New York Police Department is investigating claims a commander allegedly threatened the star by telling members of his force to shoot him on site.
Sharing the news story with his followers on Instagram, he wrote: "I'm afraid for my life, I haven't been able to sleep since I heard of this.
"The cops never notified me of the threat. I'm closing all my business in New York. I may have to sue the city."
According to New York Daily News newspaper - who reported the original story - Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez made the comment during a roll call, but it's said he meant it as a joke.
