Big Freedia Pleads Guilty
Last month Queen of Bounce, Big Freedia, was hit with felony fraud charges after she was caught using section 8 low income rent vouchers [click here if you missed that].
Freedia just pled guilty...
Big Freedia pleaded guilty to using $34k in section 8 rent vouchers between 2010 and 2014 despite touring the country as a bounce music phenom.
According to reports Freedia appeared in court yesterday with long purple hair, dressed in sequins, velvet and glitter with her reality show cameras in tow.
Although she pleaded guilty Freedia claims the issue was an oversight and that she was simply too busy to realize she was still receiving vouchers well after her income exceeded qualification levels.
Big Freedia was released on $25k bond.
Sentencing is set for June 16.
