Here is a picture of 50's 18 bedroom crib in the 'burbs'.
Just when MIKE TYSON’s neighbours thought it was safe to put the bins out — bad boy 50 CENT moves in.
The rapper has snapped up the ex-heavyweight boxing champ’s mansion in Farmington, Connecticut, for a bargain £2.5million.
Iron Mike originally had the luxury pad on the market for £18million four years ago but slashed the asking price after it failed to sell.
The 18-bedroom home is set in 17 acres of countryside and comes complete with seven kitchens, four whirlpools, a state-of-the art gym and self-contained disco.
But the sale has not been welcomed by the rapper’s new neighbours, with local cops asking to meet 50 Cent — real name Curtis Jackson — to “discuss the concerns” of residents.
Local estate agent Bob Lane told me: “This is a conservative community, an old community.
“It’s quiet and if he brings violence to it, he will be dealt with without hesitation. We don’t and won’t put up with any nonsense.”
A source close to the star, who picked up a hat-trick of awards at last week’s MOBOs, played down neighbours’ fears.
He said: “They just want to make sure there will be no wild parties or any trouble when he moves in.”
