YG appeared in court on Thursday and was subsequently released on $20,000 bail.

AceShowbiz - Rapper YG has reportedly been hit with a felony robbery charge.

The Who Do You Love? hitmaker turned himself in to authorities on Thursday, July 12, after an arrest warrant was issued following allegations he stole a diamond necklace pendant from a man in May.

YG, real name Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, appeared in court on Thursday and was subsequently released on $20,000 (£15,200) bail, according to TMZ.

In addition to the criminal charges, Jackson has also been hit with an assault and battery lawsuit by his unnamed alleged victim, who claims the rapper's team beat him up after he approached the 28 year old outside the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and asked for a picture.

The fan is suing the hip-hop star for assault, battery and theft, and is demanding at least $250,000 (£189,700). He is also suing bosses of the hotel for failing to employ adequate security.
