No charges have yet been filed and authorities are currently investigating the allegation.

It comes months after Wayne was pardoned by Donald Trump over a federal firearms charge relating to a December 2019 incident, in which he was arrested for illegal possession of a handgun during a flight on his private jet from California to Florida.

The rapper pled guilty to the charge and had been set to appear in court, facing a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, before Trump intervened.

Meanwhile, the rapper recently announced ‘Tha Carter Singles Collection’, which will feature 19 past singles in a limited seven-inch vinyl boxset.
