*A lawyer for rapper Fat Joe has come out swinging against allegations that the rapper and his crew inappropriately groped a woman following a concert on Sunday.
The artist, whose real name is Joseph Cartagena, was detained by cops in Madison, Wisconsin last weekend after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by Joe and his entourage. The unnamed female said she was the victim of “inappropriate touching” during a limo ride with Fat Joe following the concert.
The rapper was released without charge after several hours of questioning, while police continue to investigate the allegations.
Fat Joe’s lawyer Dawn Florio calls the woman’s claim “false,” according to Allhiphop.com, adding, “At no point did Mr. Cartagena or any member of his entourage assault or have any improper contact with the woman.
“It is truly unfortunate that false allegations such as these cause the public to doubt the claims of actual victims of sexual assaults.”
