Reps for Tyler Perry are setting the record straight regarding Juelz Santana.

Juelz was supposed to surrender to authorities on January 30 to begin serving his 27-month punishment for gun possession, but he was granted an extra month after name dropping Tyler Perry in court filings to the presiding judge.

Earlier this week, the judge granted Juelz' request and pushed back his date of surrender to February 2.

The rapper must turn himself into a prison in Virginia before noon. He was sentenced to the two-year sentence n December.

Juelz was busted by security officials at Newark Liberty International Airport, who found a loaded handgun and non-prescribed Oxycodone pills in a carry-on bag containing Santana's identification.
