Yesterday, news broke that Jeezy was arrested for allegedly beating up and threatening to kill his son. The altercation took place in September of 2012, and now members of the Def Jam rapper's inner circle are denying much of the details from his arrest report.
According to TMZ, sources close to the CTE front man confirm his verbal argument with his now 17-year-old son Jadarius "Lil Jeezy" Jenkins," but maintain that there wasn't much violence. After the incident (and his mugshot) were made public, Jeezy's label, Def Jam Records, released a statement clarifying that the 36-year-old "was recently made aware" of the battery, false imprisonment and terroristic threats charges hanging over his head and subsequently turned himself in to authorities last Friday (Jan. 3).
The father/son dispute started when Jeezy reportedly confronted the teen, telling him that his attitude was bad and that he could no longer stay in the house. Things got heated between the two, and although Jeezy admitted to pushing his son to the ground, he denied choking him and dragging him into a bedroom to continue the attack.
Regarding charges that he made "terroristic threats," insiders claim that Jeezy didn't tell the child "I will put a bullet in your head right now" and said something more along the lines of, "I brought you into this world and I can take you out."
Furthermore, the youngster's mother, Tenesha Dykes, is blamed for blowing the story up and "brainwashing" her son into going against his father. Her motivation is said to be money, sources say.
Dykes hasn't responded to the allegations that she's money hungry, but the son she shares with Jeezy will be turning 18 this summer, which will likely end any child support she may be receiving.
