With reports and photos putting him in the middle of a media frenzy, rapper Joe Budden has wisely found legal counsel who provided our friends over at BOSSIP with the following statement on his behalf:
As we previously reported, Love & Hip Hop star Joe Budden allegedly beat his girlfriend. TMZ posted photos of what look to be a woman badly bruised, and Joey is allegedly the culprit. Well, the rapper has come forward to address widespread domestic violence reports and revealed law enforcement searched his home as a result of the situation.
Check out what SOHH is reporting via Eben Gregory:
Budden dished out more details of the headline-generating story and proclaimed his innocence.
“I don’t take this lightly, but I do find it funny seeing as how IM THE CALMEST N*GGA IN THE WORLD !! Smh,” Budden tweeted Friday (August 22) evening.
“Also, if I did half of what’s alleged, a pic of her face would be out, not her leg.. This is simple logic here.”
“Logic typically clears up a lot of sh*t by the way.”
“I’ll have my day in court… f*ck it.”
“I did have a nice convo w @TMZ earlier about journalistic integrity, boy was that funny/stupid. Lol”
“Cops searched my house today cuz shorty told them I had guns here.. He said “wanna tell me why u have a bullet proof vest?”.. Lmao/smh”
“The lesson to be learned here is.. Leave the strippers & bartenders in the strip club… sounds so simple !” (Joe Budden’s Twitter)
