Just one day after being released from police custody in Los Angeles following an alleged physical altercation with his girlfriend, former B2K singer Jarell “J-Boog” Houston has released a statement telling fans his side of the story.
“I wanted to reach out to my fans right away to clear up the allegations circulating the web,” the statement read. “I did not get charged with any form of domestic violence against the mother of my children. I love and respect all of the women in my life and would never harm any of them. Domestic violence is a very serious matter and one that should be treated that way, however this was not a case of domestic abuse. I was taken into custody due to outstanding traffic violations. I took care of the situation, no charges were filed, and I was released Tuesday evening. Thank you to my fans who stood by me regardless of any circulating rumors. I am looking forward to a great year in 2010 for Fizz & Boog and hope that you will continue to support. Thank you.”
J-Boog and Lil Fizz recently released a single called “Bounce” on Popular Records and have just returned from a six-week tour in Great Britain. Their album, Nightlife, is due in May. —Linda Hobbs
