Scarface is addressing his arrest at the 2015 BET Hip Hop Awards, in which he was cuffed and taken into custody just moments after receiving the I Am Hip Hop award.
The 44-year-old rapper has released a statement to point out the inaccuracies in various media reports pertaining to his arrest for unpaid child support. Scarface claims the total reported-- more than $482,000-- is false and says he was unaware he was a wanted man.
"First and foremost, I would like to thank my supporters for their concern during my recent arrest in Atlanta. While we have resolved the issue I would like to correct some misinformation. The amount reported that was owed is inaccurate, and I had no knowledge about there being an arrest order for me as I have traveled to Atlanta many times; with the latest trip being in September to perform at the One Music Festival. Due to the nature of the case (having a minor child involved), I will make no further comment at this time."
Scarface was released last Friday from Fulton County jail.
