‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star Turns Himself In
“Love & Hip Hop” star Joe Budden turned himself in to the 34th Precinct in Inwood after being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend then robbing her. He was charged with robbery and grand larceny and held on $10,000 bail. Budden was bailed out by his mother shortly after. Earlier this week, the NYPD posted a WANTED tweet with Budden’s picture on Twitter.
It’s good to be free,” Budden told the Daily News as he left the courthouse. “I’ve been portrayed worse by better,” he said. Doesn’t seem very remorseful, does he?
In case you missed it, Budden’s ex-girlfriend accused him of attacking her after he saw pictures of her with other men on Instagram. According to reports, he drove to the restaurant where she was and demanded she drive back to New jersey with him. He allegedly grabbed her cell phone, mushed her, twisted her arm and choked her before slamming her head against the passenger-side window.
Budden obviously denies his ex’s accusations. His rep released this statement earlier this week:
“Mr. Budden looks forward to an opportunity to responsibly deal with and address the allegations against him so he may establish the actual facts of the night in question. Mr. Budden has fully cooperated with the investigation. Mr. Budden asks for patience as the evidence and facts unfold to demonstrate the truth of his involvement and the real events that transpired on the night in question.”
Can’t say we believe him. Budden has a history of these accusations. A few years back, he went through similar public problems with then girlfriend Esther Baxter.
Sigh. It’s time to add Joe Budden to our list of men who ain’t ish.
The girlfriend released photos from the altercation, here.
