On Friday, G Herbo was charged in a fraud case. Herb, his music promoter and other members of his crew are accused of using stolen identifications to charge more than $1 million worth of exotic services over a four-year period, according to @TheChicagoTribune.
G Herbo’s team exclusively spoke to The Shade Room and stated, “G Herbo has been charged with several offenses in Massachusetts, however, he maintains his innocence and looks forward to establishing his innocence in court.” The statement continues, “Herbo has legal representation in Massachusetts via Prince Lobel, whose team has reached out to the US Attorney’s office in Massachusetts to make arrangements for Herbo’s appearance. G Herbo will appear in Massachusetts whenever he is required either in person or via Zoom.”
As previously reported, G Herbo and his crew allegedly spent the money on private jets, limousine rides, exotic car rentals, a vacation at a villa in Jamaica and two designer puppies allegedly purchased for Herb from a dealer in Michigan in 2017.
Herb’s promoter and manager Antonio “T-Glo” Strong, Chicago rapper Joe Rodeo and alleged co-conspirators Steven Hayes Jr., Demario Sorrells and Terrence Bender were also charged.
The 14-count indictment charges all defendants with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.
A judge also ruled that G Herbo’s manager is the alleged ringleader of the $1.5 million fraud that includes the use of “aliases and other people’s identities” that were allegedly found on the dark web.
G Herbo’s manager turned himself in on November 24th.
As you recall, this comes after G Herbo was named to Forbes’ 30 under 30 musicians list this year. He actually posted the good news Monday with the caption, “NEVER PAID ATTENTION 2 ACCOLADES…CAN”T START NOW … & I CAN”T STOP NOW!!”
