G-Unit affiliate Shawy Lo's manager has stepped forward to clear the air on rumors and speculation which suggest he may have spent time behind bars over the weekend.
According to manager Johnnie Cabbell, the confusion stems from a leaked photo of an upcoming Shawty music video.
After doing our own independent investigation into the matter and speaking with sources from Shawty Lo's camp, we found out he was actually NOT ARRESTED due to failure of child support payment or anything for that matter.It all started when a picture surfaced on the internet Friday night of Shawty Lo being handcuffed by a City of Atlanta police officer. HHE spoke exclusively with Shawty Lo's manger, Johnie Cabbell who stated that the picture is just a scene from the video shoot of an upcoming single.While speaking to his manager was only part of our investigation, we examined the actual photo of his purported arrest and determined that the cop wearing the uniform had an "Atlanta Police" emblem on the shoulder.

The Internet heated up yesterday (January 19) when the arrest rumors started circulating.
The confusion started early Saturday morning when the photo was reportedly posted online by DJ Smallz. After the alleged arrest, the aspiring reality show rapper helped to add fuel to the news of his detainment by sending out the tweet, "Wat dey thought!!! Dey den get a chance 2do da paper work!!! #CashBond we fina go turn da city up," implying that he had bonded out of jail. (XXL Mag)
This buzz comes days after Shawty started campaigning to get his recently shelved "All My Babies' Mamas" reality special back on Oxygen.
"Yeah I really understand. They have the right to think that, but at least give the show a chance, to see what's goin' on," Shawty said in an interview in response to the show's backlash. "They makin' their assumptions off a 13-minute trailer and this like the biggest news around the world right now and it's unbelievable. ... The show wasn't about, we finna be fightin'. My show is not about no negative; it's a positive. But if they wanna see the show, sign a petition." (Hot 107.9)
After public outcry, Oxygen pulled the plug on the show a few days ago.
"As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special," a network spokesperson told MTV News in a written statement on Tuesday (January 15). "We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation." (MTV)
