Big Freedia

New Orleans bounce queen Big Freedia won't be twerking on a stage near you in the immediate future.

Freedia, whose government name is Freddie Ross Jr., faces 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on Aug. 11 for repeatedly failing drug tests while on probation for stealing section vouchers.

U.S. District Judge Lance Africk ruled Wednesday that Freedia must live in a halfway house and be subjected to random drug testing until he is sentenced.

The transsexual hip hop artist pleaded guilty in March to felony theft of $35,000 worth of section 8 vouchers.

Big Freedia tested positive for marijuana in April and May, according to the U.S Attorney’s Office, then tested positive for marijuana and methamphetamines on June 21. Africk found that Big Freedia compounded her problems with evasive statements to federal probation officers and the judge.

In the wake of Wednesday’s ruling, Big Freedia must live at a halfway house, can leave it only with the prior permission of a probation officer and must undergo “further substance abuse evaluation,” court records state.

The “Queen of Bounce” will also be prohibited from touring or performing at shows without approval from the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services. Source

    White people are best, most organized criminals on Earth.

    The difference is tho.....theyre the ones creating the laws that sanction their various forms of murder and theft.

    He looks like this every week on his reality show, hair, clothes, make-up and all.

  • hi-liter

    It prolly wasn't "Whyte folk Meth" maybe just a prescription drug he was prescribed and was still in his system. He seems like he has good enough sense not to be doing something that will cause him to loose his teeth and make him look like the living dead.

    What's the diff between transsexual and transgender? Is a transgender a M2F/F2M who has undergone complete sexual surgery and a transsexual is a cross dresser?

    A transsexual is just a man who wants to wear women's clothing or vice versa; a transgender person is transitioning to become the opposite sex if I'm correct.

  • Meme

    Think you mean transvestite as crossdresser

  • http://Instagram.com/_queenofthecaramel_ Jackie Rayne

    So does that mean she won't be at Beyoncé's concert in New Orleans ? ? That's the only reason why I'm going

  • MookieFly

    Transvestite traditionally means a man/woman who dress up like the opposite sex for sexual/personal reasons but still identifies as straight. Transsexual used mean a person who doesn't identify with their original sex and has chosen to transition through medical means, often taking on the new sex as their own. Trangender is a newer umbrella term that primarily focuses on personal gender identity, whether medically altered or not, as a means of self expression. Sexual attraction takes a secondary role in the Transgender category.

    Transgender people dont have the surgery or plan to have it while transexuals have it or plan to have it. Most are Transgender ( 31% of them NEVER plan to have surgery) which means we will have men with b00bs and peens in the women's locker rooms and this ish is legal, Jesus save us!

    * a corssdresser knows hes a man and gets sexual gratification from wearing women's clothing.

    * Oh yeah and most male transexuals are straight men who consider themselves lesbians after they transition ( surgery or not). Think on that for a minute.

  • tynamight
