A famous music artist is denying claims that he paid fans to chase him through the streets. A photograph surfaced on Twitter showing the incident.
According to Time, the rapper and TV personality was filmed in Charlotte, North Carolina running away from screaming fans with his affiliates, with the footage subsequently uploaded onto social media on Sunday (June 11).
Bow Wow released his own statement about the incident. He claims he did not pay the people at all.
“Our tour buses was parked, like, not really where they’re supposed to be,” the 30-year-old explained in his defense. “I remember just being at the top of the loading dock with Jermaine [Dupri], and Jermaine is like, ‘Yo, you cannot go out there.’ I’m like, ‘Look, I’m not about to stand here in the loading dock all day. We gotta get to the bus.’ So I told him, I said, ‘Well, I’m going to try to run around the crowd,’ and he’s like ‘Good luck.’
“It was smooth until, like, one [fan] grabbed my shirt and I said ‘OK, I’m about to just make a dash,'” he continued.
What do you think? Do you think it was just a desperate attempt for attention?
