Young Jeezy is attempting to clear his name after accusations that he brutalized his son.
Following his arrest, the rapper claims that he was set up by his baby mama.
TMZ reported, Jeezy and his 17-year-old son Jadarius got into a huge argument in September 2012, but it didn’t really escalate into violence. According to the reports, Jeezy told his teenage son that he was a punk with an attitude and didn’t want him staying at his house.
That’s when Jadarius became belligerent and the two started screaming at each other. Jeezy denies that he hit, choked, or dragged his son, but admits that he shoved him to the ground when Jadarius got in his face.
Jeezy refutes that he made any threats to his son and instead said something along the lines of, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it.”
He claims that the child’s mother, Tenesha Dykes, is brainwashing their son so she can get more money out of Jeezy.
The 36-year-old rapper was arrested on Friday in Atlanta and charged with battery, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats.
He was released on $45,000 bond.
