Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has developed a serious fear of the ocean after watching disaster movie Titanic.

The 26 year old reveals he would love to try shark diving one day but his phobia of the open water is preventing him from embarking on the deep sea adventure, thanks to the James Cameron blockbuster - a fictionalised account of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on its doomed maiden voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in 1912.

He tells TheBoombox.com, "I don't f**k with the ocean water. That's my biggest fear, I swear to God. I used to be scared of heights and all that s**t. That's why I wanna go shark diving, but Titanic f**ked me up.

"I used to love water. I seen Titanic and I was like, 'Aw, hell no!'"
