Update: Uncle Luke Jailed After Failing To Pay Child Support
Legendary 2 Live Crew frontman Luther Campbell was arrested last night (Feb. 18) in Miami-Dade County for contempt of court.
The Miami Herald reports that the rapper was ordered by a judge on Feb. 6 to pay $10,233.36 in a paternity case filed against him by Shakera Morgan, and he was subsequently jailed for his failure to do so.
Just last summer, the rapper starred in his own VH1 reality show, “Luke’s Parental Advisory,” in which he balanced his adult entertainment empire with getting married to his fiancée, Kristin Thompson, and raising his two teenage children.

Update: Luke was released from the Pretrial Detention Center this morning after paying the entire $10,233.36 in a cash bond.
