Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane appears to have pulled the plug on his Twitter page for good after a weeklong circus filled with disses, alleged hackings and the release of a new download-only free album.
With his @Gucci1017 Twitter account no longer active, reports suggest the rapper finally decided to delete the page.
It looks like Gucci Mane, 33, scares easy! Nicki Minaj, 30, Iggy Azalea, and rapper Tyga all fired shots back at Gucci after his insanely inappropriate Twitter rant on Sept. 9, and Gucci responded by completely shutting down his Twitter account just two days later. Guess he couldn’t take the heat! No one seemed to buy Gucci’s claims that he had sex with Nicki, Keyshia Cole, rapper Tyga’s girlfriend, and a long list of others. Some even believe his tweets were just a publicity stunt to boost album sales or get his career going again after he was dropped from Atlantic Records. Whatever the reason behind the rant was, Gucci seems to regret it because he deleted his Twitter account on Sept. 11. It seems the backlash was just too much for him. (Hollywood Life)
His former manager, who Gucci claimed hacked his account, has confirmed they no longer have a working relationship.
After he apparently tweeted salacious claims about women he says he slept with, ranging from Nicki Minaj to Ciara, Gucci Mane’s Twitter account seemingly has been deleted. According to published reports, the final tweet before the account went down alleged that the rapper’s ex-manager hacked his Twitter account. Although he declined to comment on the tweets, Gucci’s one-time manager Kevin “Coach K” Lee told Complex Music, “I haven’t managed him in three months.” For three consecutive days this week, Gucci made headlines and became a trending topic on the social networking site for apparently using Twitter to blasting artists, including Drake, T.I., Jeezy, Waka Flocka Flame, as well as slamming Atlantic Records and tweeting graphic detail on the women he supposedly bedded. Though the claim of hacking calls into question the authenticity of the tweets. (ABC News Radio)
