These internets (and our @Bossip Twitter timeline) has been buzzing for the last hour about “news” of T.I.’s arrest in New York City.
The rumor started after one site posted an item claiming that according to a “reliable source,” Tip had been picked up while going through a security checkpoint, on his way out of NYC following a promo run for his new VH1 show. The story alleged that a member of his entourage was being questioned after TSA officers smelled marijuana and pointed to T.I. as the one carrying the drugs. It was at that point, allegedly, that T.I. was taken into custody.
However, Hanna Kang, general manager of T.I.’s label Grand Hustle, issued a statement via Twitter indicating that this is in fact, just a rumor.
T.I. has since personally reassured his fans that he is, in fact, still a free man. Flip the page to see what The King had to say.
