Thursday, Mar 1, 2012 10:00AM
Bad Boy Records rapper French Montana has stepped forward to clear the air a day after close friend Max B made headlines for having his murder conviction appeal rejected, claiming the hype is fake.
According to Montana, Max has not had a ruling on his appeal.
"My brother max b is not denied on his appeal just got off da phone with him don't believe the rumors courtdate is coming up god bless," French tweeted Wednesday (February 29) night. (French Montana's Twitter)
While Max has not yet spoken out on the reports, he re-tweeted Montana's proclamation.
"RT @frenchmontana: My bro max is not denied on his appeal just got off da phone w/ him dont believe rumors, courtdate is coming up god bless," Max re-tweeted yesterday. (Max B's Twitter)
Yesterday, reports emerged online suggesting Max would spend the next 30 years behind bars.
Looks like we won't be seeing Max B anytime soon. Max B's appeal was denied and he won't be eligible for parole or prison release until November 9th, 2042. Yep, we most likely won't see Charly Wingate aka Max B for 30 more years according to the New Jersey State Police. Max B ended up in a New Jersey State Prison cell in 2009 after he was found guilty on 9 out of 11 counts of murder and robbery charges. If you commit the crime, you do the time but is there any actual proof that Max B murdered anybody? I don't think so. Free Max B! (Rap Dose)
Last year, Max had high hopes of possibly getting released from jail.
In April 2011, Max B was hopeful that he could be released from prison in the Summer of 2011. "The appeal process is done, finally. It's been done for about a month now," he said then. "Now what they do is, the prosecutor responds back and you get a letter. They tell you you've got to wait eight to 10 months for a response from the appellate court. You might see me in the summer. You might see me at the end of the year. I'm just waiting on the appellate courts, all my paperwork is done." (Hip Hop DX)
