XXXTentacion will be spending Christmas behind bars.
The South Florida rapper was arrested this morning when he appeared in court for a hearing on his assault case. The prosecution added seven more felony charges to his name including witness harassment and witness tampering. The judge also ruled that he violated the conditions of his bail from his original arrest and was immediately taken into custody by police officers, TMZ reported. This means that X will be in jail until his trial.
The prosecutor argued in court in Miami-Dade County on Friday that XXXTentacion coerced the ex-girlfriend, the same female he is accused of assaulting, to drop the case. The “Look At Me” rapper presented a document earlier this month allegedly signed by his ex-girlfriend saying that she wishes to drop the case. The prosecutor questioned the validity of the document and announced that more charges are coming.
Earlier this week, XXXTentacion released a statement to his fans on Instagram apologizing for letting them down. At the time he knew there was a strong possibility he would get arrested at his court hearing today. “Court date is on the 15th 9:00 am here is my court information, if I am taken into custody, I want to tell everyone I’ve let down I apologize, I tried my best, I really did,” he wrote.
