Kidd Kidd was arrested earlier this week on allegations that he strangled and assaulted a woman, Maurita Robinson, back in February. Now his lawyer, Scott Leemon, has released a statement saying that Robinson’s claims are bogus.
“The New York allegations are totally baseless,” Leemon said in a statement to XXL. “They were made 4 months later by a woman who has a history of making false allegations against Mr. Stewart. We are confident once the District Attorney’s office investigate the matter, Kidd Kidd will be vindicated.”
Kidd, real name Curtis Stewart, was arrested on June 30th at the Best Buy Theater. The New Orleans native was slated to hit the stage for the 2015 XXL Freshman Class concert but was put in handcuffs before he could hit the stage.
50 Cent uploaded an Instagram video yesterday (July 1) saying he was on his way to bail Kidd out of jail. His next court date is July 6th.
