33-year-old rapper Nines has reportedly been charged with drug offences, according to the Metropolitan Police.
A video posted online of the star, whose real name is Courtney Freckleton, saw the rapper with his hands hand-cuffed behind his back while wearing a white T-shirt, grey tracksuit bottoms and a white cap. In the clip, you can see Nines as he’s escorted through the airport in west London by four uniformed officers.
The rapper has allegedly been charged with being involved with the supply of cannabis and possession of the Class B drug. However, in a update in The Shade Borough comments, this claim is something the rapper denies.
The rapper implied the story was ‘cap’ / lies, as he commented an emoji of a baseball cap.
Nines has yet to expand on the claim that the story is false, which is an interesting addition to the story considering how the news has been largely reported across several reputable publications across the country.
The rapper’s latest album Crop Circle 3 peaked at number two in the UK charts after it was released last month, and fans are questioning whether the rapper will truly ever say goodbye to a life involving criminal activity.
One person commented on the news saying:
“This guy is like a broken record. Him and Loski are tryna get a prison sentence”.
“I’m convinced he is a hamster on a hamster wheel, same conviction, new year”.
Nines was also reportedly charged with three counts of breaching a serious crime prevention order by allegedly not telling police his home address and owning a second phone and a laptop he had not registered with officers, according to court documents.
The rapper, who lives in Bushey, Hertfordshire, appeared in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court last Friday. He was granted conditional bail by district Judge Kathryn Verghis and did not enter pleas to any of the charges, according to court official.
He is due to appear at Kingston Crown Court on 15 December for a plea and case management hearing.
The Met told Sky News: "Courtney Freckleton appeared in custody at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on Friday 17 November charged with three counts of the breach of an existing serious crime prevention order, being concerned in the supply of a class B drug (cannabis) and possession of a class B drug (cannabis).
"He was arrested at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday 15 November.
"He was bailed to appear at Kingston Crown Court on 15 December."
