G-Eazy 'Grateful' To Escape Jail Time
G-Eazy said Sunday he is “grateful” and “blessed” to be a free man following his arrest in Sweden last week.
The 28-year-old rapper, whose real name is Gerald Gillum, was arrested on May 2 after a scuffle at the Solidaritet nightclub in Stockholm. On Friday, he pleaded guilty to assault, drug possession and resisting arrest.
“Embarrassed & apologetic beyond words about the incident, but above all I’m so f**king grateful they let me go,” he shared on Instagram. “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 f**k to be a free man, back on tour performing for the fans.”
For pleading guilty to the charges, G-Eazy avoided jail time but was sentenced to two years probation. He was ordered to pay about $11,600 in fines and about $950 in restitution to a bouncer he assaulted.
“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. Love.”
