Auto-tune king T-Pain is dealing with some pretty bad press right now. New reports claim the hip-hop artist landed in police custody Friday (August 31) with a loaded gun in his possession at an Atlanta airport.

According to reports, this all went down when TSA agents discovered the weapon at a baggage check.

Law enforcement sources tell us … the rapper’s bag was flagged during a main checkpoint screening at the Atlanta airport Friday, and when TSA agents inspected it, they found a loaded Smith & Wesson .380 inside. We’re told cops were called … removed the weapon, and took T-Pain aside for further investigation. It’s unclear at this time if the rapper was arrested … but he seemed to address the incident as it was happening on his social media. (TMZ)

T-Pizzle has also addressed his headline-generating situation on his social media pages.
