With rumors swirling online that Dipset member Juelz Santana was robbed overseas during a recent trip to London, the New York rapper released a statement to the media to refute the false information.
“Bottom line, my former manager along, with an ex-group member, accepted an astronomical amount of money for a paid date that never happened or was ever brought to my knowledge,” Santana explained. “I was NOT robbed.
“My staff and I were kicked out of our orginal hotel for the commotion,” he continued. “The promoter, myself, and my Dipset associate Blackadon worked out the outstanding issue like bosses do.”
Santana was overseas from August 21 to September 1, according to his representative. Word began to spread that the Harlem MC and his entourage were approached by local promoters in London over the weekend. Allegedly, the men stole items from Santana in response to the rapper missing a booked show.
The boisterous Dipset artist performed in a number of cities while overseas, however, the U.K. stop was the only show that was canceled.
“That was my first European tour,” Santana said. “I enjoyed it. I appreciate my fans in Europe for the support and I look forward to seeing them next year during festival season.”—LaTisha Robbins
