Chicago MC tweets innocence in alleged divorce scheme.

Published September 4, 2013

Lupe Fiasco denies a claim that he helped his former business partner hide $9 million. The estranged wife of Fiasco's friend and mentor, Charles "Chilly" Patton, filed a lawsuit accusing the rapper of helping to keep money from her in the former couple's ongoing divorce battle. 

Using Twitter as his forum, Fiasco laughed off the report. "Hahahahaha…hiding my own money from somebody else's wife??!!!…aint that a b---h! #FreeChilly."

Patton, a known heroine kingpin, is serving a 44-year prison sentence and allegedly used money from his music industry dealings to fund the drug empire. Fiasco added in his tweets that the alleged money is legit. "It's not drug money…it's actually money from people who come to Lupe Fiasco shows, buy albums or tshirts…hahhaha."

After calling out the "stupid a-- media," the 31-year-old jokingly prayed for the controversy to pay off. "Dear God please let this stupid a-- scandal allow me to make more money from album sales so I can buy a Ferrari F40. Amen #100Bricks," he wrote.

A lawyer for Fiasco previously told TMZ, "There are no secret accounts." is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music
