Now free, Katie Got Bandz was arrested earlier this week for identity fraud.
Female Chicago rapper Katie Got Bandz was reportedly arrested Monday for identity theft, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office (See below).
The 24-year-old rapper who’s real name is Kiara Johnson was given bail of $50,000, which she paid on Wednesday and ultimately freed her.
Katie took to Twitter Wednesday evening to let the world know she’s a free woman. “Bitch Im Free” she tweeted out.
For what it’s worth however, Sam Charles, a reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times, claims Katie was actually first booked back in June, but after allegedly missing some court dates, a judge issued a warrant for her arrest and kept her without bail. It was then reportedly reduced to $50,000, and she apparently bonded out Wednesday afternoon.
So all in all, she’s currently a free woman & can hopefully get back in the studio. The last we’ve heard from Katie was 2015’s Drillary Clinton 3 project, while her Katie Blanco project has still kept fans waiting.
Katie is due back in court on August 21st, when we’ll find out more information. Stay tuned.
