Following an arrest last week, for which he’s accused of brutalizing his own son, Young Jeezy is trying to clear his name, denying all accusations.
According to TMZ.com, sources connected to the rapper (real name: Jay Wayne Jenkins) say that he and his 17-year-old son Jadarius did, in fact, get into a heated argument in September 2012, but it never escalated into violence.
The source says that Jeezy was upset with his son’s attitude and told him he didn’t want the teenager staying with him. Jadarius then became “belligerent”, says the report, and both began screaming at each other, but Jeezy claims he never physically struck his son, though he admits to shoving him to the ground when he “got in his face.”
As far as the terroristic threats, in which Jeezy alleged told his son that he would kill him, and “put a bullet in your head right now,” he says that’s not true. Instead, he claims all he said was something to the effect of, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it.”
Furthermore, the source blames Jadarius’ mother Tenesha Dykes, whom they say is brainwashing their son against his dad to get money.
Jeezy turned himself into authorities on Friday (Jan. 3), and was arrested and charged with terroristic threats, false imprisonment and battery.
Police docs allege that the rapper became physically violent with his son, punching and pummeling him. Jeezy is scheduled to be arraigned on Jan. 29th.
In an official statement, Jeezy’s camp said: “We have no doubt this matter will resolve itself appropriately. At this moment, Mr. Jenkins is thankful for the support of his fans and the respect for his family’s privacy.”
