American NBA player James Harden, left, and rapper Lil Baby, 2nd from right, were briefly detained by the French police on Thursday.

Lil Baby, real name Dominique Armani Jones, was in a car that was pulled over by police on Avenue Montaigne in Paris after officers observed thick plumes of smoke wafting from the car.

Lil Baby and his small entourage were taken to the police station for questioning. Harden, who was nearby, attempted to intervene and was also detained.

Police found 20 grams of cannabis in the car. The noxious plant is illegal in France, according to ESPN. A female police officer was seen checking a vaporizer found in the vehicle.

There were no arrests and the men were never taken into custody.

The rapper and the Brooklyn Nets star are in Paris to attend 2021 Paris Fashion Week events.

In June, Harden was named to the board of luxury brand Saks Fifth Avenue. In a press release, Harden claimed he had "a love of fashion."

Fans have questions after Drake, right, presented his "Wants and Needs" collaborator, Lil Baby, left, with a ladies Rolex wrist watch.

The rare "Chrome Hearts" Rolex is a vintage day date wrist watch with a delicate silver link bracelet that wraps around a lady's wrist twice.

Lil Baby posted an image of the watch on his Instagram story, along with a "Thank you" note to the Canadian rapper.

The rappers worked together on "Wants and Needs," which charted at No. 2, and their 2018 single "Yes Indeed" hit No. 6 on the Billboard chart.

Lil Baby's collabo album with Chicago rapper Lil Durk debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Fans wondered about the story behind the generous, but odd, gift for a man.

Lil Baby's other baby mama, Ayesha, is considering taking him back to court after an OnlyFans adult film star leaked the details of his cash transaction with her.

A woman named Ms. London, who earns a living making adult films and prostituting herself, revealed she was paid $6,000 by the father-of-two while Jayda, the mother of his youngest son, was at home caring for their child.

The rapper had just celebrated his 26th birthday at a maskless bash in Atlanta last week when he apparently hooked up with Ms. London at a hotel and left $6,000 on the nightstand afterwards.

London couldn't wait to share the details of their sexual encounter on Twitter.

"Ok I'm home, 6k richer & full of 1942," London wrote in a now-deleted tweet. "The best d*ck I ever had came from a millionaire who didn't say more than two full sentences to me," she tweeted. "He literally beat me to the mattress soon as I got in the room... Not dropping no names, but jayda not leaving this man ever," she said, referring to the rapper's long-suffering baby mama, Jayda Cheaves.

After Lil Baby's predictable denials, Ms. London shared a DM exchange in which he reportedly told her: "What's the point of paying if you do all that !! You fuccin the game up !! If I pay for pussy youn supposed to speak on it. That's bad business mama."

Now the mother of Lil Baby's eldest son, Jason, wants to know why she and her son are forced to subsist on a measly $2,000 a month when he's dropping stacks on prostitutes.

Ayesha is considering taking him back to court -- and now she has the evidence to prove her case.

Hours after celebrating his 26th birthday in Atlanta last week, rapper Lil Baby allegedly enjoyed a brief encounter with an OnlyFans adult film actress who talks too much.

Ms. London claims the rapper allegedly paid her $6,000 to do what his baby mama, Jayda Cheaves, won't do.

"Ok I'm home, 6k richer & full of 1942," London wrote in a now-deleted tweet. "The best d*ck I ever had came from a millionaire who didn't say more than two full sentences to me," she tweeted. "He literally beat me to the mattress soon as I got in the room... Not dropping no names, but jayda not leaving this man ever,"

Lil Baby wasted no time slamming the sex worker for being unprofessional.

"Y'all need to stop the desperate shit," he tweeted. "When shit going good watch for the devil!"

But Ms. London shared a DM exchange in which he reportedly told her: "What's the point of paying if you do all that !! You fuccin the game up !! If I pay for pussy youn supposed to speak on it. That's bad business mama."

London promised to provide video of their raunchy encounter, but so far she has not produced the goods.

Meanwhile, Lil Baby's 23-year-old fiancee, Jayda, is unbothered by the allegations. She's been down this road before when other groupies leaked details of their encounters with the rapper.

As long as Lil Baby pays her bills and drops a Hermès bag on her every time he cheats, she's good.

Rapper Lil Baby claims he's not a deadbeat dad because he sets aside uncashed checks for his two minor sons.

The 25-year-old Atlanta rapper made the claims after his ex-girlfriend accused him of falling to make child support payments.

Lil Baby, real name Dominique Armani Jones, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share how he's providing for his boys, who he co-parents with ex Ayesha Little, mother of his four-year-old Jason, and girlfriend Jayda Cheaves, mom of his younger son, 18-month-old Loyal.

He captioned an Instagram photo gallery that shows him with his 2 children: "I Got Some Checcs That I I Ain't Touch They For Loyal An Jason" [sic].

The post comes days after Ayesha took to her Instagram Story to accuse the rap star of not paying their son's $10,000 school tuition fees.

"@LILBABY_1 JASON'S SCHOOL TUITION HAD AN OUTSTANDING BALANCE BEFORE THE VIRUS EVEN CAME ABOUT I HAVE EVERY EMAIL. DUE TO YOU NEVER PAYING IT THEY TOOK MY BABY OFF THE PORTALS SO HE WON'T RECEIVE ANY VIRTUAL LEARNING PROGRAMS FROM HIS SCHOOL BECAUSE THEY BASICALLY KICKED HIM OUT."

Prince Williams/ATLpics.net

Ayesha was reportedly upset after Jayda flashed IG images of her new Birkin handbag, an expensive gift to her from Lil Baby. The high-end Hermes bags cost tens of thousands of dollars.

Lil Baby insisted he chose not to pay for his son's school due to safety concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He also shaded Ayesha.

"I get the n****s you f**king ain't buying you Birkins or whatever but don't go to the Internet and act like I don't go above and beyond for my son."

In another Instagram Story, the rapper is seen braiding his son Jason's hair. The adorable video won him cool points with the ladies on Instagram.

Rapper Lil Baby is dismayed that no one told him Kanye West wanted to work with him on a song. The Atlanta rapper took to Twitter.com to respond after Kanye dropped his name in one of his rambling tweets the week.

"Lil Baby my favorite rapper but won't do a song wit me," Kanye tweeted.

Lil Baby responded, "Nobody told me ye was trying to get me on a song that's fucced up."

In a follow-up tweet, Baby tagged Kanye and wrote, "kanyewest no disrespect nobody told me."

Maybe no one told Baby because no one in his camp knew until Kanye tweeted about it this week.

The 25-year-old rapper caused a firestorm on social media after he got into a heated debate with Rolling Stone writer Charles Holmes, when the journalist insisted, "Black people can't be racist."

But Lil Baby disagreed: "Just 'cause you work in a racist system doesn't mean you racist."

"Damn near every system that got a job is a racist system. You know what I mean?" said the rapper, real name Dominique Armani Jones.

"CEOs be like old white people. You never know, they got to be some kind of racist 'cause at some certain age... that was the way of life almost. So I almost feel like all these corporations or whatnot may be racist. And black people are racist too."

"Black people can't be racist," the writer said in disagreement, prompting Baby to respond, "Why? Racist means to be just to your race."

Holmes explained: "Well, the thing about racism is you would have to have some type of power, and Black people, historically speaking, don't have any power to be racist. We can be prejudiced."

"To me, a racist is someone who treats a different race than theirs a different way than they would treat theirs," the "Drip Too Hard" rapper said.

Lil Baby's second album My Turn debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It also went platinum.

Rapper Lil Baby got into a heated debate with Rolling Stone writer Charles Holmes, after the journalist insisted, "Black people can't be racist."

The 25-year-old rapper, who topped the U.S. Billboard 200 with his second album My Turn earlier this year, was discussing police corruption and systemic racism with Holmes.

The two men discussed a line in his song "The Bigger Picture,", "Corrupted police been the problem where I'm from / But I'd be lying if I said it was all of them."

Holmes said there can't be "good police in a fundamentally flawed and racist system".

But Lil Baby disagreed: "Just 'cause you work in a racist system doesn't mean you racist."

"Damn near every system that got a job is a racist system. You know what I mean?" said the rapper, real name Dominique Armani Jones.

"CEOs be like old white people. You never know, they got to be some kind of racist 'cause at some certain age... that was the way of life almost. So I almost feel like all these corporations or whatnot may be racist. And black people are racist too."

"Black people can't be racist," the writer said in disagreement, prompting Baby to respond, "Why? Racist means to be just to your race."

Holmes explained: "Well, the thing about racism is you would have to have some type of power, and Black people, historically speaking, don't have any power to be racist. We can be prejudiced."

"To me, a racist is someone who treats a different race than theirs a different way than they would treat theirs," the "Drip Too Hard" rapper said.

"I feel like if you're a black person and you treat all black people one way and all white people one way, you're racist. I'm not a racist, so I give a white person a chance to talk and actually we get into it before I can say I don't like you or not."

He added: "I feel the same way about a black person. You ain't gon' be my buddy just 'cause you're black. Just straight up."

In unrelated news, Lil Baby dropped aspiring rapper 42 Dugg from his 4PF label after the rapper dropped what sounds like a homosexual reference on a track.

It sounds like the rapper says: "I was out here suckin' d**k / I was tryna pay the rent."

But after the backlash on Twitter, 42 Dugg clarified the lyrics, tweeting: "HOES OUT HERE SUCKIN D**K… I WAS TRYNA PAY HER RENT."

But fans aren't convinced that's what he said on the track. Listen below and decide for yourself (if you care).

In an interview with The NY Times, Lil Baby, 25, said his kids and his attitude are areas in his life that he would like to improve on.

"My kids. And my attitude. So many people try to get me that I got into this defensive shell. If there’s a disagreement, I’m getting defensive. That’s the biggest thing I’m working on right now. I have so much going, I just get angry. Stressful. It seems like I got money to please everybody else."

Lil Baby's new album, My Turn, drops on Friday.
