A few days ago the internet was ablaze after news of Shawty Lo‘s arrest for failure to pay child support. Well it appears it was all an elaborate hoax.
Reports Straight From The A:
Now it’s been revealed that Shawty Lo (real name Carlos Walker) was apparently pulling a publicity stunt to gain more attention for his failed reality show!
Shawty Lo recently tweeted the photo above of he and 2 of his 11 children as they were flashing a handful of cash, stating:
HipHopEnquirer did the footwork that no one else cared to do and found out that the attention starved father of 11 (or is it 12?) just wanted to create a buzz for his new video:
After doing our own independent investigation into the matter and speaking with sources from Shawty Lo’s camp, we found out he was actually NOT ARRESTED due to failure of child support payment or anything for that matter.
It all started when a picture surfaced on the internet Friday night of Shawty Lo being handcuffed by a City of Atlanta police officer.
HHE spoke exclusively with Shawty Lo’s manger, Johnie Cabbell who stated that the picture is just a scene from the video shoot of an upcoming single.While speaking to his manager was only part of our investigation, we examined the actual photo of his purported arrest and determined that the cop wearing the uniform had an “Atlanta Police” emblem on the shoulder.
All Atlanta police arrests falls in the County of Fulton. We contacted the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department and verified Carlos Walker alias Rico didn’t have any arrests since 2010 and it was not for child support.
