As if there weren’t already enough drama going on with R&B singers of today, this morning we have some updates on a recent story that everyone is babbling about. R&B singer Faith Evans was reportedly arrested by the LAPD this weekend on Saturday on suspicion of DUI somewhere near Marina Del Ray, California.
The “You Used to Love Me” singer/songwriter was stopped at a checkpoint when officers detected alcohol before arresting her for being intoxicated. At the time of press, Faith’s blood alcohol level had not yet been released. The singer then took to Twitter to check in with her fans who’d mostly all heard varying reports of what actually happened. Here’s what she had to say according to reports from Singersroom.com on Sunday evening.
“Hi Faithfuls. I am on the set of my new video for my single ‘Gone Already’,” writes Faith Evans.
“I’m sure by now most of you heard that I was detained on suspicion of a DUI. After completing a full day of wardrobe prep I was stopped at a random checkpoint. I’m fine and well, and thank you for your prayers, kind words and concerns. I can’t wait for you all to see my new video & look forward to hearing from you guys…Fizzy.”
We know this isn’t the first time Faith Evan has made news and gossip blogs light up with troublesome coverage on the singer. Back in 2004, Evans and her husband/manager Todd Russaw were arrest in Atlanta for possession of marijuana and cocaine. Some say her last full album “The First Lady” suffered because of her run-in with authorities, but will it happen again now that she’s on the promo trail for her latest musical offering?
The highly anticipated new album from Faith Evans currently entitled “Something About Faith” has reportedly been re-scheduled for release on Tuesday, October 5th via Faith’s independent deal she struck with E1 Entertainment. Concerning details of the new project, Faith Evans also spoke out about what she’s been up to lately.
“I’m really proud of it. It’s been a lot of work – especially being on an indie label. I was able to lean on whatever that something is that people like about me or respect about me or makes them want to work with me or be a part of my project. I’m very appreciative and I know that I’m blessed to be able to still be relevant.”
