Actress Vivica Fox's 2003 split from short-term lover 50 CENT taught the Kill Bill actress such valuable lessons, she was inspired to get a tattoo of the name of the song which helped her through her heartbreak.

The 41-year-old beauty spent hours listening to STRENGTH, COURAGE AND WISDOM by soul star India.ARIE - and she decided to have the words permanently displayed on her body in a bid to avoid suffering such emotional pain again.

Fox was left shell-shocked when the IN DA CLUB rapper publicly accused her of using their relationship in a bid to boost her public and industry profile.

She tells supermodel Tyra Banks on the upcoming edition of her US chat show, "He was like, 'She's exploiting me, she's trying to use me to get publicity.'

"But, you know, I just considered that ghetto love. It was his way of dealing with the break-up.

"After my break-up with 50 Cent, that was a song I listened to almost every day because I needed strength, courage, and wisdom to never let that happen to me again."
