Social media went crazy this week when news broke that Atlanta rapper Young Jeezy was arrested for allegedly attacking his 17-year-old son in 2012. Sources reportedly close to Jeezy tell TMZ that most of the information being reported about the incident is false.

The sources claim Jeezy and his son Jadarius did get into a heated verbal argument, but the only time there was any physical contact between the two was when Jeezy pushed Jadarius to the floor after the boy got in his face. The argument apparently began because Jeezy told his son that he did not want him staying at his house any longer because of his “punk kid” attitude.
Jeezy was also accused of making terroristic threats against Jadarius during the altercation, including saying that he would kill him. The rapper says that the exchange only included the statement, “I brought you into this world and I can take you out of it.”
TMZ sources say Jeezy’s arrest was instigated by Jadarius’ mother, Tenesha Dykes, as a set-up in order to get more money from the rapper.
