50 Cent doesn't have a girlfriend because he can't trust women as he believes they only want him for his money
50 Cent can't have a girlfriend because he doesn't trust women.
The rapper-and-actor - who is worth an estimated $440 million - is single through choice because he believes women only want him for his wallet.
He said: "I'm single and haven't had a girlfriend for quite a long time. It's difficult for me to trust a woman. Men are attracted to beautiful women. Women are attracted to men who offer security - financial security. And if you have money and you're famous, women find that sexy."
The 34-year-old hip-hop star was sued for $50 million by Shaniqua Tompkins - his ex-girlfriend and mother to his son Marquise - who claimed he had promised to care for her financially for life.
Although her lawsuit was later dismissed, 50 completely lost his faith in women after the case.
He told German newspaper Bild: "You never know what she really wants. A lot of people marry without knowing the true motive of their partners. I won't get ripped off."
It isn't just women the rapper finds hard to trust either. He still wears a bullet-proof vest following the 2000 incident where he was shot nine times.
The rap star - real name Curtis Jackson III - said: "There are a lot of people who want to see me dead. I've often been in life-threatening situations. At a certain point I realised, I can't control when it is time for me to die. If it happens it happens. Nobody can intimidate me."
