Rapper 50 CENT has criticised Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt for refusing to confirm whether or not they are a couple, because he believes the press would leave them alone if they behaved openly.

The IN DA CLUB star insists too much privacy can be dangerous for celebrities, as the media will go to great lengths to dig out any secrets.

He says, "If you're a celebrity, people want to go on that journey with you.

"If you try to hide it, eventually the public's curiosity forces them to find out what's in your garbage can.

"When you don't allow people to have that information, they start to dig harder.

"If Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were open, they wouldn't have paparazzi following them."
