Less than 24 hours after reports of rap star Jeezy turning himself to police on a slew of serious charges surfaced, new reports claim his ex-girlfriend may have set him up.
According to the latest reports, Jeezy’s September 2012 incident with his son never turned violent.
Young Jeezy says he did NOT brutalize his son and make terroristic threats against him … and claims the whole thing was a set up by his loathsome, greedy, gold digging baby mama who got him arrested. Sources connected to Jeezy tell TMZ … the rapper and his 17-year-old son Jadarius did indeed get into a nuclear argument in Sept., 2012, but it never turned really violent. We’re told it started when Jeezy told the teenager he had turned into a punk kid with an attitude and he didn’t want the kid staying at his house. (TMZ)
The reports specifically cite Jeezy’s ex-lover as the one responsible for pitting their son against him.
Our Jeezy sources say Jadarius became belligerent and the two starting screaming at each other. Jeezy claims he never hit, choked, or dragged his son, but admits he shoved him to the ground when Jadarius got in his face. As for the terroristic threats — Jeezy is accused of telling Jadarius, “I will kill you … I will put a bullet in your head right now” — the rapper claims all he said was something to the effect of, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it.” Our sources claim at the bottom of it all … Tenesha Dykes, whom they say is brainwashing the son against his dad and trying to squeeze every penny she can get from Jeezy.

Buzz behind the unexpected arrest scattered across the Internet yesterday (January 7).
Young Jeezy has been looking poised for a fascinating new chapter of his career — that is, whenever Def Jam finally puts his next album out — but he’ll have to put an arrest behind him first. The gruff Atlanta rapper turned himself in to police on January 3 after a grand jury issued a warrant charging Jeezy in connection with a family dispute, according to TMZ. He was reportedly charged with battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats. (SPIN)
Despite the seriousness, the rapper’s legal team said it felt confident everything would be handled appropriately.
“We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately. At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.” (Statement)
