Celebrity - News



The following story contains discussion of sexual assault.

As a teenager, Charlamagne tha God started making money by selling drugs. He was arrested for possession of marijuana and cocaine with the intent to distribute twice, as he told The New York Times in 2013.

He was also arrested for involvement in a shootout, though he contended he was only a witness. "I was in the back seat of a car and a shooting happened, and so all of us ended up going to jail for it," he said.

In 2001, when Charlamagne tha God was in his early 20s, he was accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old during a party he organized. Charlamagne allegedly cooperated with authorities and submitted to DNA testing, which reportedly didn't match the samples retrieved from the victim.
