G-Eazy Apologizes for Assault- + Drug-Related Arrest: ‘Embarrassed Beyond Words’
G-Eazy has apologized to fans for being arrested earlier this month for reported assault and cocaine possession.
The rapper, who allegedly attacked security guards who'd approached him for erratic behavior in a Stockholm club, was detained by police, who ultimately found narcotics in his pocket. And Sunday (May 6), G-Eazy uploaded his contrition to Instagram.
"Grateful & blessed to be free & safe. Happy to be in Copenhagen tonight doing what I love most. Embarrassed & apologetic beyond words about the incident, but above all I’m so fucking grateful they let me go, craziest experience of my life, awful night with a lot of bad luck and some even worse decisions but like I said I’m grateful as fuck to be a free man, back on tour performing for the fans. Thank you to everyone who’s held me down along the way and supported this journey, I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know," he wrote.
For the most part, fans seemed supportive of his sentiment.
"Big ups. You the real G. Just focus on giving us real (good) songs," one wrote, while another noted "Everyone makes mistakes. Still love you."
A later report noted that an overzealous may have been to blame for the incident, as G-Eazy meant to strike someone who'd been taking relentless photographs, but hit the wrong person.
