Rapper Juvenile has been arrested in Louisiana.

The 400 Degreez hitmaker, real name Terius Gray, was detained on Saturday (17Jun17) in New Orleans for failure to pay child support and contempt of court. Sources tell nola.com, civil court judge Nakisha Ervin-Knott ordered Gray to pay $154,000 (£120,500) to his son's mother, Dionne Williams, or face 90 days in jail.

The missed child support payments reportedly date back to 2012, but he paid $20,000 (£15,700) earlier this year (17). His contempt of court charge reportedly stems from failing to attend a hearing on 8 May (17).
