BASSETERRE, St. Kitts and Nevis (AP) — Police in St. Kitts and Nevis say that U.S. rapper 50 Cent and a member of his entourage were detained and charged for allegedly using “indecent language” during his performance at a music festival.

Local police said in a statement Sunday that 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, and entourage member Bajar Walter have been released on bail. They have not been allowed to leave the Caribbean country pending a Monday morning court appearance.

Representatives for 50 Cent did not return messages Sunday.

Employees at the police press office said they didn’t know what exact words were allegedly used during the Saturday night performance at the St. Kitts Music Festival.
