Rapper Juvenile has just entered a “not guilty” plea to one count of disorderly conduct after his arrest last month, following a brawl at a Miami hotel.
According to previous reports, 37-year-old Juvenile — whose real name is Terius Gray — was arrested and taken into custody for his alleged involvement in a brawl that erupted inside LIV nightclub, and spilled outside to the front of the Miami, Florida hotel.
Security at the nightclub told the authorities that people involved in the brawl were “creating a threat to life and property, as well as the overall safety of the patrons inside.”
Juvenile had just reunited with rapper Lil Wayne at the time, following the two rappers’ long-standing beef, but Juve insisted that Weezy was not involved in the fight.
This is said to be the latest in a series of legal troubles for the rapper. Earlier this year, a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Juvenile after he allegedly failed to pay his former girlfriend adequate child support.
Juvenile released a statement about the club brawl, saying “Man, that club LIV on the beach has a security problem and I got caught up in it. That’s all.”

Rapper Juvenile has been arrested by the authorities due to disorderly conduct in Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach early Monday morning after he allegedly got involved in a nasty fight.
According to MBPD spokeswoman Det. Vivian Hernandez, Juvenile — whose real name is Terius Gray — was arrested on disorderly conduct charges. County inmate records show that the rapper was held at Miami-Dade’s Pre-Trial Detention Center before bonding out Monday morning.
Juvenile had just reunited with Lil Wayne on stage at LIV nightclub earlier that evening, when something went wrong during the show. The two rappers — who were in the Hot Boys together back in the late 1990s — had a long-time running feud when the group broke up — and Sunday night was the first time they have been on stage together since their estrangement.
Then, around seven in the morning, cops said that Juvenile — who was listed at 5’11, 150 lbs — was involved in a crazy brawl that began inside the LIV nightclub and continued outdoors after several people were escorted from the club. A crowd of about 100 people had gathered at the hotel’s valet area and were “yelling and screaming and some were pushing each other.”
Security from the nightclub told the Miami Beach police officers that people who were involved in the melee were “creating a threat to life and property as well as the overall safety of the patrons inside.”
As responding cops arrived at the scene, they ordered those involved to leave the premises, while Juvenile was arrested after police and security personnel from LIV intervened to separate him from the other man involved in the fight. Juvenile was subsequently brought to a nearby station where he was booked for disorderly conduct.
“Mr. Gray was visualized heading toward to Collins Ave. to enter his vehicle to exit the property,” wrote an arresting officer, “but prior to leaving the property he was involved in a fight with an unknown subject.”
Juvenile has since been released from custody. The rapper told media outlet TMZ that the fight was not with Lil’ Wayne.
This is not the first time the rapper had a run-in with the law. In 2001, Juvenile was arrested for breaking a Champagne bottle over a man’s head outside the Improv Comedy Club. He has also faced legal troubles over child support payments and drug charges stemming from separate incidents in Louisiana in 2003, 2010 and 2011.
Juvenile first gained national recognition in 1999 after releasing the album “400 Degreez” which produced hit singles such as “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up.” His return to label Cash Money Millionaires in 2003 produced the hit song “Slow Motion.” Following this album, he left Cash Money again, and in 2006 he was signed to Atlantic Records. Juvenile released “Reality Check” under that label. After that, he released his eighth studio album, titled “Cocky & Confident,” on December 1, 2009. His ninth studio album, titled “Beast Mode,” was released on July 6, 2010.

Rapper Juvenile says he loves his son and he strongly believes that he is the biological father. Juvenile claims that he only demanded a paternity test as a procedural step in gaining custody of his 13-year-old son.
Previous reports stated that the 37-year-old rapper claims he only recently learned that his baby mama was having sexual relations with “at least one other man” at the time and that Juvenile was “fraudulently induced” into numerous child support agreements. As a result, Juvenile recently filed court docs, demanding the paternity test. The rapper claims he never established paternity when his son was born and didn’t even sign the birth certificate at the time.
Despite what Juvenile, real name Terius Gray, said in the court papers, he told media outlet TMZ: “My son acts and looks just like me. I am doing this for procedural reasons to get custody.”
Juvenile owes $160,000 in unpaid child support, but if the paternity test proves the kid is not his son, he could be off the hook. However, Juvenile says he “highly doubts” the test will come back negative, adding, “I love my son to death … I hope the test proves that he is mine.”
An arrest warrant was issued for 37-year-old rapper Juvenile back in February due to falling behind on child support amounting to $160,000. Juvenile, however, said that he is a good father and that his son stays with him most of the time.

Amidst the child support battle that rapper Juvenile is embroiled in, he has reportedly demanded a paternity test to verify if he really is the father of his 13-year-old son.
According to new court docs filed in Louisiana, Juvenile says he never established paternity when his son was born and did not even sign the birth certificate at the time. Juvenile also claims that he only recently learned that his baby mama was having sexual relations with “at least one other man” at the time and that he was “fraudulently induced” into several child support agreements.
As previous reports have stated, an arrest warrant was issued for 37-year-old rapper Juvenile back in February due to falling behind on child support amounting to $160,000. Juvenile told TMZ himself that he is a good father and that his son stays with him most of the time.
But now, the rapper is requesting a paternity test, and if it turns out that he’s not the father, he wants all charges against him dropped. Additionally, Juvenile says he would want all of his money back which he spent for child support for his 13-year-old son.
Juvenile and his baby mama are set to be in court next month.

Rapper Juvenile is apparently in shock and outrage after learning that an arrest warrant has been issued and is out to get him over unpaid child support. According to TMZ reports who recently spoke with the 36-year-old rapper, Juvenile bluntly said “This is a bunch of bullsh*t.”
As previous reports have stated, Juvenile is a wanted man in Louisiana and is facing 90 days behind bars for allegedly stiffing his baby mama, Dionne Williams, of more than $160k in unpaid child support for their 13-year-old son. A judge has now ordered that Juvenile be arrested on sight. In the state of Louisiana, deadbeat dads can be put in jail for eluding their child support obligations, and a judge ruled that Juvenile is no exception since he hasn’t forked over a dime since December 2006. However, the judge ruled that if Juvenile (real name Terius Gray) comes up with $50k immediately, he can give himself more time to catch up with the remaining balance for the unpaid child support.
With regard to the warrant, Juvenile says “I was never informed that there was a warrant out for my arrest.” Juvenile went on explaining, “My son stays with me most of the time … I take care of my son … I love my son.”
In another statement released by Juvenile addressed to his fans regarding the unpaid child support, he said, “With reference to recent allegations made against me, I would like my fans to know that such accusations are completely false and my legal team is currently at work to prove so. In the meantime, I stay positive. I will continue to focus on my work and I look forward to the release of my upcoming album.”
When asked how Juvenile plans to proceed now that he is aware of the legal situation, the rapper responded, “Now that I know, my lawyer is on it … I’m going to handle it.”
