NBA YoungBoy’s Mother Sherhonda Check Wendy Williams For Comments About Arrest

As the saga surrounding NBA Youngboy’s arrest continues to play out, talk show host Wendy Williams was yesterday drawn into a battle of words with the famous rapper’s mother, Sherhonda Gaulden.

The 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, was arrested after attempting to flee the police at a traffic stop in Los Angeles on Monday. He was pulled over due to an outstanding federal warrant. Reports are that Kentrell has since been indicted by a federal grand jury on firearm charges allegedly stemming from an arrest in September last year.

YoungBoy Never Broke Again was charged with possession of firearms as a convicted felon and possession of a firearm not registered in the National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. He was reportedly found with two illegal guns, a .45-caliber pistol, and a 9mm pistol, on September 28.

The ‘Self Control’ rapper could be facing up to 20 years in prison if he is convicted on the charges. Added to the fact that he has had other run-ins with the law, one which resulted in a member of his entourage fatally shooting a man, NBA could be facing a pretty tough sentence.

While fans of the rapper have been standing in solidarity with him and calling for his freedom, not everyone is of the view that he is deserving. Talk show host Wendy Williams yesterday spoke out about the incident, condemning the rapper.

She said, “He’s got to go to jail. “How do you do a hot pursuit. There are innocent people out here. You could have hurt innocent people in your hot pursuit and running through people’s backyards. Nobody wants that; bringing down the property value. And how is it that you do what you do with seven kids and only 21-years-old?”

This is not the first time that Wendy Williams has spoken out against NBA YoungBoy as she often condemned him for having multiple kids.

Understandably, Wendy’s comments did not sit well with the rapper’s mother, Sherhonda, his biggest supporter. In a series of clap backs on her Instagram, Sherhonda dragged Wendy Williams, questioning if she was even a woman.

A now-deleted post from NBA YoungBoy’s mom said, “F*** Wendy Williams around here letting a half dead 90 year old white man s**k her d**k worried about my child stop tagging me in bulls**t.”

Sherhonda later noted that the post was removed presumably by Instagram while calling for Wendy’s show to be removed.

As it relates to Wendy’s comment about her son dragging down property values, Sherhonda said, “she’s not talking about just my child, she’s talking about blacks in general because no matter rapper doctor lawyer, if you’re colored that’s the term they use.”

Social media users did not support Sherhonda’s take on the situation, with one user on Instagram saying, “No ma’am. Wendy is talking specifically about your child.” She added, “Don’t bring our kids into this.”

NBA YoungBoy Under Federal Investigation For Drugs & Weapon

The legal troubles of NBA Youngboy are continuing as the rapper is now under investigation in Louisiana for his alleged involvement in the busting of a group doing a music video where the participants were found with guns and drugs.

Federal authorities say that during a music video being shot in September 2020 in Baton Rouge, 16 people, including NBA Youngboy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, were arrested. Gaulden is being investigated for being in breach of his conditions of release that dictate that as a convicted felon, federal and state laws prohibit convicts from being in possession of a firearm.

The 21-year-old father of six is currently out on bond, and his attorney-at-law has requested that he be released from his bond supervision as it has been six months already, and the rapper has not been formally arrested or charged by the East Baton Rouge District Attorney’s office.

His attorney James Manasseh said, “The Office of the District Attorney has returned Mr. Gaulden’s seixed property and there is no indication that the State intends to file a Bill of Information against Mr. Gaulden.” Manesseh told The Advocate that that Gaulden is innocent of any charges against him.

Meanwhile, the District Attorney’s office says Gaulden’s case is currently being reviewed by his office and the U.S Attorney’s office.

Gaulden remains out on a $75,000 bail bond. He has challenged the police decision not to return his personal belongings after the incident, which led to State District Judge Tiffany Foxworth ordering the Baton Rouge Police Department to return the rapper’ two diamond necklaces and a diamond ring as well as $40,000 in cash and a cashier’ cheque valued at $300,000.
