The woman who was reportedly victimized by Webbie has released an official statement concerning the event.
Earlier today we reported onÂ Webbie allegedly attacking a woman in Baton Rouge, LA two days ago, and getting arrested for the incident.
Now the woman in question has spoken out and clarified what actually happened. It seems the story was largelyÂ exaggerated. Read the official statement from the lawyer of the victim, who was in an on-again-off-again relationship with the rapper.
Atlanta, GA- Contrary to recent media reports and what can only be described as an exaggeration ofÂ actual events, âWebbieâ (Webster Gradney, Jr.) did not âbrutallyâ attack my client and, fortunately,my client did not suffer injury requiring medical attention.Â
The ârobberyâ was unfortunately a non-malicious attempt, by the accused, to deny the womanÂ resources he had given her to leave the city, via air transportation, following their domesticÂ argument. The accused did not âmeetâ my client at a party but rather they had been residing together,Â off and on, for more than 18 months. Though a rocky relationship, my client and Mr. Gradney spentÂ the evening together after being separated briefly. The early morning assault is domestic related andÂ should be treated as such. Â
While neither my client nor I condone acts of violence, especially domestic, we will not conspireÂ with the media or officials to paint an inaccurate picture of Mr. Gradney or the events. We will notÂ conspire with anyone to deliberately destroy Mr. Gradneyâs reputation, life and/or career. Neither myÂ client nor this case should be used as a tool to send another âblack rapperâ to prison for any otherÂ case or charge that is unrelated to these events.
Both parties want nothing more than to move beyond this matter. Itâs an unfortunate situation and myclient will, however, cooperate with officials as required by law.Â
