(AllHipHop News) A Beaumont, Texas rapper fomerly associated with UGK records was arrested on human trafficking and simple kidnapping charges on Monday. Ivory Charles Pantallion III, who performs under the name Ivory P, and Jessica Lynne Morgan were obtained by Lake Charles police for allegedly kidnapping a 19-year-old Alabama woman and attempting to sell the woman as an escort through online advertising.
Authorities claim the woman originally left with Pantallion and Morgan, 24, willingly as they stayed in Beaumont and Lake Charles hotels, but she eventually became fearful for her life. She was then able to contact her mother who informed police of the situation.
33-year-old Ivory P, aka Ivory Pimping, was once affiliated with Port Arthur, Texas’ UGK Records. The label was founded by UGK (Underground Kingz) member Pimp C in 2005 before his death in 2007. While Ivory P is still listed as a member on the label’s Facebook page, Pimp C’s widow, Chinara Butler, says Pantallion has not been involved with UGK for several years.
