50 Cent's Security Splurge

50 Cent spends $20,000 a week on security to protect himself.

The 'Candy Shop' rapper - who was shot at nine times during an incident in 2000 and has openly admitted to dealing drugs in the past -  takes extreme measures both to protect himself and his property and also to ensure he doesn't get sued.

The 33-year-old star explained: "I spend $20,000 a week on security. My home is surrounded by cameras.

"I need surveillance not only to look out for me but also to protect me. You get all these crazy lawsuits and I need cameras to check on things."

50 is not the only star concerned about his security.

David and Victoria Beckham have splashed the cash to turn their UK home into an impregnable fortress.

Their £2.5 million mansion in Hertfordshire, England, is now protected by CCTV surveillance, guard dogs, a high wall topped with razor wire and 24-hour security patrols by former SAS members.

One employee previously said: "Even if you're only going there for a few hours, you still have to sign in and out of every room. The cameras watch you from the minute you go in - it's like a military base."
