Los Angeles: The two teenagers who were arrested for breaking into rapper 50 Cent`s mansion are not burglars, but just fans who wanted to "hang out" at their idol`s home, according to their families.

Alexander Hernandez and Santos Padilla were taken into custody for intruding into the `In Da Club` hitmaker`s 52-room Connecticut mansion, reported TMZ online.

Cops believe the intruders scaled a fence and entered the house through an unlocked door. Hernandez was found in a closet, drinking a bottle of wine taken from the rapper`s collection and the pair was subsequently charged with third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass and possession of marijuana. Bail was set at USD 50,000 for each of them.

But Hernandez`s sister claims that her teenage brother had no intention of stealing anything, he just wanted to experience the "thrill" of getting inside the mansion so he could "hang out" there.
