Killer Mike expects to be “cleared of all wrongdoing” after he was arrested on Sunday, February 5, because of an altercation with Grammy Awards security personnel.
Mike won three Grammy awards, including for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, on Sunday.
According to reports, a female security guard working the star-studded event claims she was injured by the rapper during a confrontation inside the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Killer Mike denied the allegation in a new statement to several media outlets.
“As you can imagine, there was a lot going and there was some confusion around which door my team and I should enter. We experienced an over-zealous security guard, but my team and I have the upmost confidence that I will ultimately be cleared of all wrongdoing,” Mike, whose legal name is Michael Render, says.
“The situation has been overblown, but we are confident that the facts of the case, when laid bare, will show that Mike did not commit the alleged offense, and he will be exonerated,” a source in the artist’s camp adds.
Reports say that Mike allegedly encountered the guard near her assigned entrance. The guard told police she asked for Render’s tickets and directed him to a security checkpoint. At this point, she claims Render tried to make his way around her, and when she “ran around and got in front of him again,” he allegedly “pushed her to the ground,” a source said.
