Gully Bop needs to be careful or his rags to riches story could become rags to riches to rags.
Gully Bop was arrested at the John F. Kennedy (JFK) international airport as he tried to board a flight to Jamaica. The not so long ago top flight DJ was slapped with domestic violence and robbery charges. The artist was able to post bail but cannot leave the United States until he goes to court.
The charges were brought on him by his on again off again girlfriend, Amari, who is also the DJ’s manage and is herself an entertainer. Amari wasted no time in letting the fans of her and Gully Bop know that he was behind bars.
“I have some disturbing news. If you look on my time line, I’ve been saying something over and over. Well, it happened. I was sleeping and the detectives just called me and let me know that they have apprehended Gully Bop. I tried to send out a warning several times to tell them to get in touch with me and no one ever did,” she posted on Facebook and other social media sites.
She explained the charges that she brought against him and warned that there could be several more arrests regarding the matter. “It has to do with domestic violence that occurred months ago in regard to him running me down with a butcher knife, stealing my passport and my green card,” she explained. “A number of people are going to be locked up and they’re not listening to me”.
Gully Bop rose to fame a few years ago after been introduced as a homeless man with some skills on a video that went viral. The riches has not stopped Gully Bop’s problems, however. Last year, his ex-girlfriend Shauna Chin gave him a bloody beating with a hammer. No charges were brought against Chin and she claimed the beat him in self defense.
Hopefully Gully Bop will get back on track soon as 18 Karat Reggae continues to be a big fan of the Bop’s anything is possible story.
