Pusher P broke his silence about the situation by writing a letter claiming his innocence. Gunna, whose real name is Sergio Kitchens, also claimed that he is being ‘falsely accused’.
The 29-year-old musician wrote: ‘The image that is painted of me is ugly and false. My fans know that I love to celebrate life. I love my family, I love to travel, I love music, I love my fans.’
In addition, he continued, ‘I have every faith that God will do me justice for the purity of my heart and the innocence of my actions.’
Additionally, the artist’s attorneys, Donald F. Samuel, John A. Garland and Kristen W. Novay, shared a statement addressing Gunna’s arrest.
They said: ‘Mr. Sergio Kitchens, known as Gunna, is innocent. The indictment falsely portrays his music as part of a criminal conspiracy.
