Talking about how the Bad Boy Records boss reacted to news of his Sunday, January 29 arrest, the 'Wild Boy' rapper says, 'He's, like, playful with it, but there's a serious tone behind.'
Machine Gun Kelly might have been arrested once over the weekend, but his Bad Boy Records boss, P. Diddy, thought he got busted twice. The 21-year-old rapper shared details of the matter when talking with MTV News about how the music mogul took news of his Sunday, January 29 arrest.
In an interview conducted a day after his Florida arrest, MGK claimed that Diddy was very understanding at first. "You can tell he's, like, playful with it, but there's a serious tone behind [it]," he said on Monday. "I talked to Puff today, and he's like, 'It's all good. Do what you do. You did what you had to do.' "
MGK then recalled that Diddy threw a tantrum after misreading a tweet that led him to believe the "Wild Boy" rapper also got arrested on Friday when one of his friends was caught drunk driving and got into a car crash. "He thought I was in the car too, so he thought I got arrested twice," he explained.
"It was like the first arrest was cool, like, all right, he'll let it slide," MGK continued to dish. "But when he [thought it was two arrests], he was like, 'What the f**k? You got arrested two times? Something is wrong with you, man.' He was, like, spazzing out. I think all the label is on edge about how we rock."
MGK was busted in Florida in the early morning of Sunday for misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He was taken into custody at around 4:12 A.M., and was released on $100 bond after spending a few hours behind bars. Following his release, he tweeted, "Just spent my entire night in a f**king Florida jail...s**t escaladed way to quick last night, it always does with us though."
When Diddy got news of MGK's arrest, he took to his Twitter to write, "@machinegunkelly where the f**k are you at? Are you ok? Do you need Bail or a lawyer?????!! Eveyrone hit him to see if he's ok!" The Diddy-Dirty Money founder followed it with another tweet that reads, "@machinegunkelly WtF!!!!!! Call me at miami crib now!!!!! Everyone hit him and tell him to call me NOW!!!!! Pls thanks!!!!"
