The rapper’s attorney told Billboard, “I’ve known Fab close to 20 years and believe he is incapable of engaging in the alleged conduct.”

“The thing about marriage is that, I believe in it but don’t believe in it,” he said at the time.

“I think sometimes people put on that ring and that paper,” he continued. “And it messes up a good thing, because now it’s a different emphasis on your relationship” He ain’t wrong.

We have no idea what happened — the charges are very vague, but no man should lay hands on a woman. Leave the house, take a walk, go chill and smoke some cush, but do not hit women.
