50 Cent has pulled out of the MOBOs and other European dates a day after he was beaten to the top of the chart by rival Kanye West.
The star had vowed to retire as a solo artist if West outsold him.
He was due to play the MOBOs and the Vodafone Live Music Awards this Wednesday, followed by a performance for MTV in German on Friday.
But his spokesman told MTV News: "50 Cent is very sad to confirm that due to a last minute, unforeseen and unanticipated change in his schedule, he will have to postpone his European promotion trip from September 18-25."
Yesterday West went straight in at number one in the album chart with his latest offering, Graduation.
50 Cent only managed second spot with his record, Curtis.
Both albums were released on the same day and 50 cent vowed in an interview: "If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I'll no longer write music."
"I'll write music and work with my other artists, but I won't put out any more solo albums."

We must love each other, love ourselves, knowledge is self, understanding is wisdom.
