50 Cent was arrested in the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis on Saturday night for using the word "motherf*****", according to TMZ.

The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, headlined the St. Kitts Music Festival over the weekend. During his performance of his hit song "P.I.M.P." 50 — who had been warned not to use profanity, according to police — sang the word "motherf***er" several times in front of 40,000 concertgoers.

He was formally arrested and charged for the offense of  "making use of indecent language" during his performance. The Power star was granted bail in the sum of $5,000.00EC ($1,800 U.S. dollars) and was ordered to surrender his travel documents and appear in court on Monday, June 27.

"Mr. Jackson was only booked to host the show," his rep told ET. "When he arrived at the festival organizers asked him to perform, he obliged and used the DJ they had there. 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."
