Lil Mama Releases Statement Regarding Her Recent Arrest – Tha Wire [VIDEO]
Today in Tha Wire in case you weren't aware Lil Mama was arrested this week. It was kinda crazy, as the rapper/dancer/actress was initially stopped Thursday (March 10) for doing 38 in a 25. But the routine traffic stop, turned more serious when the officer discovered Niatia Jessica Kirkland, Lil Mama's real name, was driving with a revoked license.
That was little tid-bid led to the rapper being arrested. Of she was booked without incident and then released. Realizing it wasn't a good look, hiphollywood reports Lil Mama took responsibility and released the following statement.
“I would like to apologize to my family, friends and fans for my actions last night. I made a mistake and it was totally irresponsible of me to drive without a valid drivers license. My actions do not in any way reflect who I am as a person.
As I move forward, I have learned a valuable lesson and understand the consequences for my actions which resulted in my arrest.
I appreciate the support and the concern for my well being during this time. I have worked very hard, and I would like to continue to be a role model for young women and men. With that being said, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will take the necessary measures to have this quickly resolved and
corrected.” Lil Mama
