Scarface has cleared up reports on his arrest at the BET Hip Hop Awards earlier this month.
You may have heard that Scarface was arrested earlier this month after an appearance at the BET Awards, but the Texas rapper wants to make sure you got the full story.
Face received the I Am Legend achievement award at the ceremony, only to be taken into custody when he entered the backstage area. The initial report stated that Scarface was arrested for unpaid child support, and was not permitted to leave the state of Texas. A new statement from the rapper does not deny that, but does call into question reports of numbers and the assumption that he was aware of the arrest warrant. He also reveals that the matter has been taken care of.
Read his statement released to the press below.
First and foremost I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta. While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation. The amount reported that was owed is inaccurate and I had no knowledge about there being an arrest order for me as I have traveled to Atlanta many times; with the latest trip being in September to perform at the One Music Festival. Due to the nature of the case (having a minor child involved), I will make no further comment at this time.
