*Fat Joe has been “officially cleared” over allegations he sexually assaulted a woman following a June 10 concert in Madison, Wisconsin.
The rapper was detained after a woman complained she was inappropriately groped by the star and his entourage during a post-gig limo ride.
Fat Joe was questioned by police and later released without charge, and now the rap star’s attorney Dawn Florio has revealed that he and his associates have been cleared of any wrong doing.
“Joseph Cartagena, known as Fat Joe, and others have been officially cleared by the Madison Wisconsin Police Department of any wrongdoing,” the statement read. “Fat Joe had no contact with, and never spoke to his accuser. He was questioned for a few minutes at his hotel room and was never detained by the police.
“Making a false claim of a sexual nature in order to extort money is one of the most horrific accusations because it not only tarnishes reputations but has the potential to destroy families. Mr. Cartagena wholeheartedly thanks his family, friends, and fans for their continued support, loyalty, and words of encouragement throughout this ordeal.”
