DDG reportedly faces multiple misdemeanor charges following his June arrest for gun possession.
According to TMZ, DDG was charged with one count of carrying a loaded weapon, one count of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of reckless driving. The Los Angeles City Attorney brought charges against the 24-year-old rapper after the Los Angeles County District Attorney didn’t.
A few months ago, DDG claimed the case had been dismissed. He said he avoided misdemeanor charges in a video posted on social media.
“My case has been dismissed or rejected,” he declared. “I don’t got a felony, and I don’t got a misdemeanor.”
If convicted, DDG could be sentenced to a year in jail for each weapons charge. The reckless driving charge comes with a maximum sentence of 90 days behind bars.
DDG is dating singer Halle Bailey, who’s been making headlines as the star of the upcoming film The Little Mermaid. Disney’s live-action remake of the 1989 animated movie premieres in 2023.
Ahead of The Little Mermaid, Halle Bailey starred in her boyfriend DDG’s “If I Want You” music video. The video has racked up well over a million views since its release in August.
