(AllHipHop News) Rap newcomer XXXTentacion has been slapped with a further eight felony charges of witness tampering relating to his 2016 arrest for domestic violence.
The troubled star was jailed in Florida on Friday (December 15) for violating his bail after prosecutors accused him of coercing the ex-girlfriend he’s accused of beating not to testify to drop counts of battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment.
At the time, authorities handed him seven new charges, including witness tampering and harassment, but on Monday (December 18) they added more felonies, taking his total number of counts to 15.
According to TMZ.com, the “Look At Me” rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, allegedly made multiple phone calls to his former partner while behind bars, with prosecutors using the recorded audio footage as evidence of additional witness tampering.
The judge overseeing his case has since pulled XXXTentacion’s phone privileges while he’s being held without bail, where he is expected to remain until he goes to trial.
