A federal judge in Massachusetts has allowed rapper G Herbo to travel to New Jersey to visit his pregnant fiancee, Taina Williams.
Instagram blogger Akademiks broke the news on Wednesday, after the rapper appeared before a judge via Zoom and pleaded not guilty on fraud and identity theft charges.
Herbo, real name Herbert Wright III, was arrested last week and released on $75,000 bond.
The judge expressed concern that Herbo’s $75,000 bond set during his initial court appearance was too low.
“I know that Mr. Wright earns one million dollars a year; it’s a substantial sum,” the prosecutor told U.S. Magistrate Judge Katherine Robertson.
The judge restricted Wright’s travel from his home in California to Georgia to visit his son, Yosohn, with ex-fiance Ariana Fletcher.
Wright will also be allowed to travel to New Jersey to visit Williams, who is four months pregnant with his second child. He began dating Williams in 2018.
The news stunned Wright’s fans who were unaware that Williams was pregnant. The 22-year-old Instagram model is the daughter of reality TV personality Emily Bustamante and stepdaughter of rapper Fabolous.
Wright is one of 6 defendants in the federal case involving hundreds of stolen credit cards and over 100 businesses defrauded to the tune of $1.5 million.
