Rapper Freddie Gibbs—whose 2014 Madlib joint effort, Piñata, earned him across the board praise and a notoriety for being a rising star in the rap world—has been captured in France, regarding a claimed assault that happened in Austria in 2015.

As indicated by French daily paper La Depeche, Gibbs, the rapper with the net worth of a million dollar, was captured on Thursday night, in the blink of an eye before he was set to play a show in Toulouse, France. He's purported during the time spent being removed back to Austria, as per a warrant issued there for his capture.

Subtle elements working on it are light—and what's out there is in French—yet Gibbs' lawyer has issued an announcement denying the assertions.

"Freddie Gibbs unyieldingly denies the charges that have been collected against him by Austrian powers," it starts. "It makes you ask why it took right around a year for Austrian authorities to bring these charges. Freddie will battle the removal demand as these are just fabricated charges." Gibbs has crossed out his up and coming shows in light of the capture.
