Young Jeezy’s Manager Denies Rapper Was Arrested

Jeezy was reportedly taken into custody in the Bahamas over the weekend.

[artist id="1243444"]Young Jeezy[/artist]‘s manager, Demetrius Ellerbee, has denied a report that the rapper was arrested in the Bahamas on Saturday.

“It’s not true,” Ellerbee told MTV News.

According to Bahamian newspaper The Tribune, Jeezy was on his way to a show in an area of the island called New Providence when he was arrested by local officials. While the reason for his arrest was not specified, the paper says the rapper wasn’t held for very long.

“He was here with us a short while. He passed through the station briefly on Saturday,” said Superintendent Ashton Greenslade, an officer at the Wulff Road station. “He was booked in here and taken to CDU (Central Detective Unit).”

A Tribune source surmised that the Atlanta MC was simply “in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Elsewhere, Rick Ross recently responded to what he took as a dis from Young Jeezy in The Source magazine, stemming from the pair’s beef regarding Ross’ “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast).” Following the release of the Bawse’s single, Jeezy dropped his own “B.M.F.” freestyle and the pair have been on the outs since.

“It’s not like I’m in Miami and you in New York,” said Ross. “We see each other. That’s the only issue I had. It was sideways. So I made a record, ‘Summer’s Mine,’ just to [let him know], if we gonna play that sport, let’s put it on the table like men. If it was just a freestyle that the world took the wrong way, leave it alone. That’s how I took it.”
