Kidd Kidd is a free man after posting $105,000 bond Monday, July 6th. The 26-year old G-Unit rapper had been locked up in New York's Rikers Island since his arrest right before his performance at the 2015 XXL Freshman concert on June 30th.
He was taken into custody for allegedly assaulting and strangling his girlfriend, Maurita Robinson, during a February 2015, domestic dispute in Las Vegas..
The New Orleans native posted $5,000 bond for his New York case in criminal court, according to XXL. He later posted $100,000 after appearing in Supreme Court. Judge Larry Stephen ordered the rapper, real name Curtis Stewart, to turn himself into N.O. police by Thursday, July 9th.
The "Better Walk" rapper appeared to be in good spirits as he enjoyed a good meal during a video shot at the G-Unit office right after his release.
His attorney, Scott Leemon, released a statement following his client regaining his freedom.
“We are very happy that Judge Stephen did the right thing and allowed Kidd Kidd to turn himself in to New Orleans. These allegations are insane and our investigation will continue."
Leemon said last week that Robinson had little to no credibility. He added that the allegations that “are totally baseless. They were made four months later by a woman who has a history of making false allegations against Mr. Stewart.”
G-Unit also released a statement: "50 Cent and G-Unit fully support Kidd Kidd in this matter.”
