Flo Rida: Flo raided

The Australian tour by certified douchebag Flo Rida has suffered another blow with a member of his entourage spending a night in the lock up and coping a $1800 fine following a raid of the rapper’s hotel suite.

Flo Rida made the headlines on the weekend by throwing a pathetic “hissy fit” and refusing to play at the Fat As Butter festival and then turning up over three hours late for a club show where the club owners turned him away as they “did not believe he was in a suitable condition to perform.”

Following the cancelled shows on Saturday, the comically substandard rapper and his entourage flew to Townsville to play a poolside concert at Jupiters Casino. His twitter reports that the gig was “unbelievable” but just after 8.40pm plain clothes police detectives raided a room on the hotel’s 19th floor, which had been booked out by the rapper’s minions, investigating the “strong smell of burnt cannabis” wafting down the hallways. Flo Rida’s “personal assistant” Dakari Dalawn Phillips was taken in to custody and spent 14 hours in the police lock up.

After his court appearance, Flo Rida’s lackey refused to answer any questions, but did manage to flirt with a female reporter calling her “cutie” and asking for her number. Phillips also missed his 4am flight out of Townsville with the rest of the crew.

As the Herald Sun hilariously notes “Phillips didn’t get lucky outside the court house he definitely did inside – with no conviction recorded for possessing dangerous drugs, unlawful possession of restricted drugs, posses property suspected of having being used in connection with the commission of a drug offence and unlawful possession of weapons category.”

According to police prosecutor Colleen Wainwright the search of the hotel room netted:
A clip seal bag with 16g of green leafy material
A joint with 1g of cannabis
Three grinders
A set of scales covered in specks of green leafy material
A gold capsule of tetrahydra cannabis
A viagra tablet
A 10ml bottle of liquid cannabis
A Uzi taser

Reading through that 'stocklist' from the hotel room, just describes an average bogan dude's bedroom from any given Zone 2 Suburb( minus the viagra maybe...).

I love it how the FL journos know when it is absolutely fine with the forum users to cross from objective journalism to biased slander

only way this could have been funnier is if douchebag was deported and banned from aus.

Based on that tour schedule I don't think that would affect him or us, as a country, very much at all...

Flo Rida runs crying to

“I didn’t run to the media to discuss a business issue with my tour because I didn’t think that was the appropriate way to handle things,” Flo Rida cooly explained to “Now I’m forced to, because the things that are being said about me are not true.”

Flo Rida stated that contrary to published reports, there was no room provided for the world famous entertainer at The Four Seasons as reported, nor was there transportation to the venue.

He stated that he was late to the Fat As Butter Festival, despite his attempts to take multiple taxicabs in order to make his performance, since he was provided with none.

The rap star ended up missing his performance over the transportation issues, the responsibility of which he placed squarely on the shoulders of the promoters.

As for the incident last night, Flo Rida also denied any involvement.

He stated that his room was never raided in the altercation, which resulted in the arrest of an associate, who was found with 16 grams of weed, scales, a joint and other paraphernalia, in addition to a stun gun.

“I am not a smoker and as a matter of fact, contrary to reports my room was never raided,” Flo Rida told in an exclusive statement.

The rapper said he has successfully executed tour dates around the world, with no problems, except for these two dates.

Flo Rida rounded out his Australian tour by performing at Jupiters, which hosted Townsville’s biggest pool party.

how could a cab not get him there? seriously. he couldve thrown a hefty amount of cash at the cabbie and he wouldn't even have had to stop at red lights.
but if you're a fan of the music you'd probably believe such a bogus statement


crob said on the 26th Oct, 2011

he didn't Deny that the viagra was his
