Lil Mama Speaks On Recent Arrest!
Lil Mama was arrested early Thursday morning in New York for driving with a revoked license.
TMZ first broke the story, the rapper was apparently stopped for doing 38 in a 25 mph zone and during the routine traffic stop, officials discovered that the “Lip Gloss” rapper’s L’s were revoked.
Niatia Jessica Kirkland, the Trinidadian artist’s legal name, has given HipHollywood a statement regarding her arrest:
“I would like to apologize to my family, friends and fans for my actions last night. I made a mistake and it was totally irresponsible of me to drive without a valid drivers license. My actions do not in any way reflect who I am as a person.
As I move forward, I have learned a valuable lesson and understand the consequences for my actions which resulted in my arrest. I appreciate the support and the concern for my well being during this time. I have worked very hard, and I would like to continue to be a role model for young women and men. With that being said, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will take the necessary measures to have this quickly resolved and
corrected.” Lil Mama
It’s unclear the fate of the rapper’s legal ramifications, but according to our good friend Google, offenses as driving with a revoked license can include fines and jail time, with increased sentences for repeat offenders.
Kirkland, who released a seven-track EP in December titled, Take Me Back, made headlines earlier this week after she released a cover of Rihanna’s “Work.” And it looks like she is going to have to work hard to get judge on her side.
