Migos rapper Quavo found himself in the midst of a controversy aboard a yacht in Miami. The rapper was among several individuals on the vessel when an alleged strong-arm robbery took place on Sunday night, as reported by the Miami Beach Police Department.
The situation escalated when two men, identified as Cornell Whitfield and Anteneh Workeneh, reportedly became confrontational with the boat’s captain. The disagreement arose when the captain informed the passengers that their yacht rental time was nearing its end. This led to demands for a refund from the two men. The captain alleges that one of the men threatened to end his life and throw him overboard. Furthermore, it is claimed that the duo forcibly took the captain’s wallet, which contained a significant amount of cash, and his phone.
In a twist to the story, TMZ released footage showing Quavo handcuffed with zip ties on the yacht’s deck, surrounded by police officers. The video has since gone viral, sparking widespread speculation and debate. However, it’s essential to note that while Quavo was detained for questioning, he was not arrested. The rapper’s attorney, Drew Findling, emphasized that Quavo was neither mentioned in the police report narrative nor listed as a witness to the alleged dispute.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, the Daily Mail reported that there were between 13 to 17 passengers on the yacht at the time of the incident. The police report indicates that two firearms were found on the boat, but they were not used in any threatening manner during the altercation.
The incident has left many questions unanswered, with conflicting statements from witnesses making it challenging to piece together the exact sequence of events. The Miami Beach Police Department has confirmed that the investigation is ongoing, and all individuals involved left the scene without any further complications.
In the aftermath of the incident, Quavo was seen leaving the area, covering his face, and departing in black SUVs with his entourage. The rapper’s involvement in the situation remains unclear, and fans worldwide are eagerly awaiting more details.
