A man who ripped a chain from 50 Cent’s neck as the rapper performed in Africa was turned in to police by his own parents, according to a reports.

The chain-snatching occurred last Wednesday at a concert in Angola, during the rapper’s tour of the Africa. According to the rapper’s Web site, security was limited so fans were able to interact with musicians onstage.

“However one fan had a different motive, and bit off more than he can chew,” the site says. “As he attempted to run up on 50 and snatch his chain, 50 pushed him off the stage and jumped into the crowd and then all hell broke loose.”

The rapper reportedly got his chain back “moments after the incident.” An unnamed source in the rapper’s G-Unit entourage told that 50 Cent actually punched the man who tried to rob him. “The chain is around 50’s neck right now,” the source told TMZ.

The rapper is currently continuing his tour in Australia.
