The rapper pleaded guilty to defrauding the government after receiving a PPP loan. He spent the money on treating himself to lavish gifts and casino trips instead of on alleged business employees.
He received a 20 month sentence.
According to the government, the reality television star received money for a Ferrari by falsifying documents to get a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan worth nearly $427,000. He allegedly spent the money on hotels, flashy hotels and casinos, care and more.
The PPP loans were meant to help support businesses survive through the pandemic. That said, many small businesses in need were unable to receive loans, and many large companies with deep pockets (and smaller businesses not in need) were granted loans.
