50 Cent has reportedly been hospitalized with a stomach virus.
The 'In Da Club' rapper tweeted a picture of himself surrounded by cuddly toys – including a giraffe, and elephant and a lion – in his bed, saying he wasn't looking forward to being operated on.
Alongside the picture, he tweeted: ''I don't want to go into surgery.''
Appealing to his friend, champion boxer Floyd Mayweather, for support, he added: ''@FloydMayweather call my phone why your phone off. (sic)''
XXL Magazine reported 50 was suffering a stomach virus, and while Floyd wasn't specific about his pal's illness, he asked fans to pray for him.
He told US radio station V103's Ryan Cameron: ''Please keep 50 Cent in your prayers he is in the hospital and he is extremely sick … we will remain positive.''
Although he is claiming to be ill, 50 reassured fans his latest release is ready.
He tweeted: ''I'm in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time. (sic)''
Floyd also found time to joke, posting a message under another picture his rap friend posted of him watching an old TV from his bed: ''While you're in the hospital they need to get you a flat screen TV.''
