Rapper Playboi Carter has been arrested on drug and gun related changes.

The 23-year-old – real name Jordan Carter – was said to have been pulled over by police in his Lamborghini Huracan on Thursday in the US state of Georgia for having an expired tag.

He was subsequently arrested with another man and taken to the county jail.

Officers have also claimed that they discovered drugs and weapons in his vehicle later on during the traffic stop.

Carti’s vehicle was said to have been loaded with several bags of drugs, including marijuana, Xanax and codeine, alongside three firearms, according to TMZ. Photos of the items found were later posted by the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office’s Twitter account.  

He was said to have posted bond and subsequently released on Friday morning.

This is also not the first legal issue for Carti – his home with on-and-off girlfriend Iggy Azalea was broken into last November, with over $350,000 (£285,259) worth of jewellery stolen from them.

Sources claimed to TMZ that missing items included rings, bracelets, watches, chains, earrings and a diamond engagement ring.

It was speculated at the time that the couple had got engaged after Iggy was spotted wearing a ring on her wedding finger, however the two appeared to split at the end of 2019.

Addressing the breakup, Iggy shared a status update to her Instagram story, simply saying: ‘I’m single.’

However, she later apologised to fans for telling them that they had broken up, saying: ‘I need to make an apology.

‘It’s not my character to put out whatever business I go through in my private life on the internet for the world to comment on.

‘I feel very upset and I made an impulse choice that I immediately regretted, but it was too late to undo.’

She continued: ‘The truth is that I love Jordan very much, I always will – more than you could ever know.

‘That’s all the world should ever need to hear and I am sorry for making something public that should always remain between him & I no matter what.’  

Since the post, the two were spotted together in January catching a flight to Los Angeles from a Sydney airport, and Iggy also saw Carti’s set at Falls Festival in Australia that same month. However, it is not known if they are officially back on.
