Florida rapper Lil Pump can’t keep away from the drama. New reports claim the hip-hop artist missed a flight over a confusing run-in with TSA agents at a Miami airport.
According to reports, the incident went down Thursday (December 13) after TSA believed he had drugs in his luggage.
We’re told Pump and co. were booted off the flight, and cops met them in the terminal to question Pump about what 2 airline sources said were drugs found in a checked bag with his name on it. A source connected with Pump tells TMZ, no drugs were found. The source says TSA flagged a bag that smelled like weed and was “mistagged.” Agents questioned Pump, who insisted he was not carrying drugs. The source adds no drugs were found in the bag, which another person in Pump’s crew said was his. Pump was arrested along with his manager because they allegedly became disorderly during the argument with TSA agents. (TMZ)
Earlier in the month, Pump made headlines after getting caught in a heated confrontation with Denmark law enforcement.
Sources close to the rapper tell us … cops in Copenhagen detained him and his crew Tuesday for an unknown reason. We’re told someone in the group was holding something illegal. As they were being hauled to the police station, Pump busted out his phone and began live streaming and flipped a bird behind an officer’s back. We’re told the cops found out and decided to detain him much longer. (TMZ)
In September, Lil Pump and rap star Kanye West‘s “I Love It” almost immediately turned into the top streaming song in the country.
Kanye West and Lil Pump’s “I Love It” launches at No. 6 on the Hot 100, as its bows at No. 1 on Streaming Songs with 46.6 million first-week U.S. streams, with its profile boosted by the viral “I Love It” Challenge, in which, perhaps most prominently, James Corden, as well as fans of the song have mimicked West and Lil Pump’s supersized boxy wardrobes worn in the track’s official video.
