G.O.O.D. Music's Big Sean has come clean on getting arrested earlier this month in Buffalo, New York for a sexual assault charge and explained why he has remained mum on the subject.
Claiming his lawyers want him to keep silent on the case, Sean promised to dish out the details in the coming weeks.
"Man, sh*t, that was just some little minor sh*t," Sean explained in an interview with radio host Tim Westwood. "I really want to talk about it too and go through the details but my lawyer says I can't talk about it until it's all said and done. But I'll be happy to. I'll let you know. I'll make sure to give you the exclusive when it's all said and done in a couple weeks." (Tim Westwood TV)
Details of what took place in Buffalo landed online in early August.
Detroit hip-hop star Big Sean faced allegations of sexual assault as he made his way to Pontiac for a big homecoming gig Friday night. The 23 year-old rapper, born Sean Anderson, was arrested Thursday for an alleged sexual assault during his concert with Wiz Khalifa outside Buffalo, N.Y. Big Sean hasn't publicly commented on the allegations, but he was busy on Twitter Friday afternoon, posting enthusiastically about the show and inviting fans to the concert afterparty in Pontiac.

Another man was arrested alongside Sean for the same charges.
New York state police charged the rapper with misdemeanor counts of forcible touching, unlawful imprisonment and sex abuse after receiving the complaint at Artpark State Park in Lewiston, which is near the Niagara River. He was performing with Wiz Khalifa. A second man, Willie "Sayitainttone" Hansbro, was also arrested and faces the same charges. They were arraigned and released on $500 bail and are set to appear in Niagara County Court in Lewiston on Sept. 6. (Los Angeles Times)
Despite the situation's seriousness, Sean's attorney feels confident in his client.
Big Sean's real name is Sean Anderson. Scott Leemon, a lawyer for both men, said they "vehemently deny" the charges. He said he's confident they will be cleared after further investigation. (Macon News)
