Florida rapper XXXTentacion is in trouble again. Remember when he was charged with battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment, related to an alleged assault on his baby mama?
Well, the rapper went to court today and a Miami judge ordered him jailed until trial. And he faces half a dozen new felonies on top of all that.
The presiding judge said XXXTentacion, birth name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, had violated conditions of his bail bond by contacting his estranged baby’s mama, who recently signed documents saying she wished for the charges against him to be dropped.
But the state attorney thinks Onfroy meddled with the woman, pressuring her to ask the state not to prosecute. The judge agreed.
Onfroy will reportedly now face new charges of witness tampering in addition to the battery and false imprisonment charges.
Onfroy, known for his bizarre social media postings, turns 20 years old in a few weeks, but he’s likely to miss the Holidays and his birthday as well.
He also faces a potential prison sentence if convicted.
