50 Cent demands special dressing room for sneakers

50 Cent demanded a special dressing room just for his trainers at The 02 in London.

The 'Candy Shop' hitmaker - who filed for bankruptcy last week - performed with his hip-hop group G-Unit at the London venue on Friday (17.07.15) and requested an entire room be kept empty for his shoes.

A source told Metro newspaper: "Fiddy is obsessed with his trainers and always wears a fresh pair.

"When he's on tour he brings so many pairs with him to choose from for the show, he requests an extra dressing room just for his sneakers."

The 40-year-old star has now announced a UK tour and will perform a further three dates alongside members of G-Unit including Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, Young Buck and Kidd Kidd.

50 Cent - whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III - said: "The O2 Arena was crazy last night! UK fans have some of the most amazing energy, which is why I can't wait to come back to the UK in November."

The 'P.I.M.P' rapper will play Glasgow's SECC Arena on November 4, Manchester Arena on November 6 and Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena on November 7.

Tickets go on general sale from Friday July 24 while presale tickets are available from Wednesday July 22 at www.ticketmaster.co.uk
