Rapper Fetty Wap was jailed on Monday after being arrested in New Jersey for allegedly threatening to kill someone and flashing a gun on a FaceTime call, federal authorities said.
Prosecutors claim that the rapper, whose real name is William Maxwell, violated the conditions of his release with the threatening video call on Dec. 11, 2021, leading to his arrest.
According to an affidavit, obtained by the New York Post, the “Trap Queen” rapper allegedly called the unidentified man a “rat” and threatened his life while brandishing what appeared to be a weapon.
Imma kill you and everybody you with. I’m gonna kill you.
Officials say Fetty’s possession of the firearm violated the conditions of his pre-trial release following his arrest in October 2021 on drug trafficking charges.
The “Trap Queen” hitmaker is currently in custody and his $500,000 bond was revoked pending trial in his federal drug case.
“I’m happy she’s dead because her father is a rat,” the person wrote in the caption.
“He was very manipulative in trying to get a rise out of Mr. Maxwell, to agitate him in a way no parent would have to face…the death of one’s 4-year-old daughter is something no one should use as a ploy,” Macedonio told the judge.
Fetty Wap’s daughter, Lauren, died in July 2021 from a fatal cardiac arrhythmia due to complications of congenital cardiac anomalies.
