XXXTentacion Jailed, Charged With 7 New Felonies

XXXTentacion was sent to jail on Friday morning (Dec. 15) after being charged with seven new felonies in his 2016 domestic violence case.

According to TMZ, the charges include different degrees of witness tampering and witness harassment. Prosecutors say he coerced his ex-girlfriend, who accused him of beating her. He previously faced charges of battery against a pregnant woman and false imprisonment.

Earlier this month, the “Look At Me!” rapper filed a document allegedly signed by the victim saying that she no longer wanted him prosecuted.

During Friday’s hearing in Miami-Dade County, the judge said X had violated his bond from his first arrest and he was immediately sent to jail without bail.

The 19-year-old rapper, who released his debut album 17 in August, will remain behind bars until trial and faces decades in prison if convicted.
