Fat Joe Denies Sexual Assault Claims

After performing at The Orpheum Theater last night in Madison, Wisconsin, Fat Joe was detained by police for questioning about sexual assault accusations made by a 33-year-old woman, reports TMZ.

Joey Crack’s lawyer denied the claims this morning. “Rapper Joseph Cartagena, known as Fat Joe, members of his entourage and security staff were briefly questioned by members of the Madison, Wisconsin Police Department who were investigating false allegations made by a woman who initially posed as a fan and later claimed to be the victim of an assault after demanding money,” reads a statement issued by Dawn Florio Esq. on behalf of the Bronx rapper. “At no point did Mr. Cartagena or any member of his entourage assault or have any improper contact with the woman. It is truly unfortunate that false allegations such as these cause the public to doubt the claims of actual victims of sexual assaults.”

No arrests have been made in the case.

Joe’s The Darkside Vol. 1, with production from DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Cool & Dre, Scoop Deville, and more, is slated for a July 27th release. —Adam Fleischer
