Rapper 50 Cent is so terrified of being murdered by rivals - he's hired 100 bodyguards to protect him at all times.

The In Da Club rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, allegedly wears a bulletproof vest in bed and refuses to leave his Los Angeles or New York homes unless he's accompanied by his highly- paid entourage, according to British newspaper the Daily Star.

Cent took the precautions because he fears a repeat of the notorious incident five years ago when a gunman shot him nine times.

He explains: "Because I'm from the bottom, I've got to take precautions."
