A home occupied by Waka Flocka Flame was raided by Atlanta authorities Thursday (December 16), and the rapper’s associate, Gucci Mane, and his manager and mother, Deb Antney, were detained as police searched the premises.
No formal charges were filed, but a TMZ report suggested that the investigation centered on prostitution.
Antney staunchly denied that allegation when MTV News spoke with her Thursday (December 16); according to various reports, weapons and drugs were also found on the scene.
“It had nothing to do with prostitution,” Antney told MTV News. “The weapons they found were licensed weapons. There was under an ounce of marijuana, but it was nothing but a blunt. The other drugs were medication that was in Waka’s room from when he got hurt,” Antney said, referring to Waka Flocka Flame’s February shooting .
Under the terms of the search warrant, Antney said, any person on the property was detained, which included Gucci Mane, whom she also manages. Neither Gucci nor Antney were charged. Waka was not present at the time. It remains unclear if police are searching for the “No Hands” rapper.
Antney indicated that she plans to pursue legal action against the authorities. “There’s nothing going on for you to kick a door in,” she said. “We were really surprised, but the neighbors always watch. We live in a country club, so they always watch, they always assume.”
Antney, who heads up Mizay Entertainment, was frustrated because her company is scheduled to host a toy drive Thursday. She said when she arrived on the scene, police called her “the Candy Lady” and suggested she was the ring leader of the prostitution operation.
“Of course I’m not gonna sit back and be called ’the Candy Lady,’ ” she said. “There was no prostitution. And we’re not gang-affiliated.”
