(AllHipHop News) Fugees rap star Pras took no chances with the coronavirus during a paternity hearing earlier today (March 16th).
Pras, who was arrested last week for failing to pay a $20,000 to his ex-girlfriend in a nasty beef over back child support, was in court today more than prepared for the outbreak.
The rapper showed up in Manhattan family court wearing a full hazmat suit “to make sure I’m not exposed and I don’t expose anyone,” Pras told reporters. “Let me step back…”
Coronavirus fears led Fugees’ @PrasMichel to don what the judge deemed “full hazmat gear” in NY court: “To make sure I’m not exposed and I don’t expose anyone,” Michel said. “Let me step back…” @Law360 (he’s there for child support, but DOJ claims he aided a wild 1MDB scheme) pic.twitter.com/vuqL771o2w

Pras is accused of owing his ex Angela Severiano over $125,000 for their nine-year-old son, Landon.
He claims he cannot pay because the Feds froze $74 million in his bank accounts, after claiming the money came from a fugitive financier named Jho Low, who is accused of stealing $4.4 billion from an investment fund in Malaysia.
The Feds hit Pras with a four-count indictment in May of 2019, claiming he helped Jho Low illegally donate millions of dollars to President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, using straw donors.
