Cape Town – American rapper G-Eazy released a statement - via his Instagram account -  expressing great remorse following an arrest in Sweden for reported cocaine possession and assault. 

The story of the performer’s brush with the law was first reported by celebrity gossip site TMZ last week, who obtained a video of the 28-year-old getting loaded into a police car, with his girlfriend singer Halsey in the background. 

According to music website NME, G-Eazy avoided jail time for the offences after pleading guilty to the reported charges. He was eventually released from custody and left the country to continue his European tour.

The pair have been together for some time and have a hit single together titled: Him & I.

The rapper released the statement on Sunday and it read in full (WARNING: strong language) : 

“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. Love.”
