Famous Dex was arrested while he was in court addressing another charge.

TMZ reports that the rapper was taken into custody on June 10, 2021, and was in court facing 19 separate charges, which included possession of an illegal firearm and domestic violence. However, those 19 charges were issued back in March, and Famous Dex was arrested for yet another alleged crime — violating a protection order, while he was in court of all places.

He's now being held on a $200,000 bond. The rapper's larger legal woes started in November of 2020 when a SWAT team was called to his home following a fight between him and his ex-girlfriend.

When police arrived at the scene, they discovered cuts on the woman's body. A SWAT team was called after officers saw that Famous Dex was in possession of a Tech-9 firearm.

Famous Dex's fans are worried about his potential drug usage.

Dex reportedly had a seizure while on stage during a 2019 performance, and he also passed out unconscious during an Instagram Live. The rapper averred that he was just tired. However, members of his team have stated that he has a back-and-forth battle with addiction.

Dex stated of the incident: "I always know. Only you know — not my manager, not anybody. You know you. With that being said, I ain’t got nothing to explain. The video that’s right now going viral, that’s kind of so stupid? For one, I’m a human being and I work my a-- off."

Famous Dex didn't take too kindly to DJ Akademiks suggestion he was still high following his departure from rehab. "Don’t nobody say congratulations when I went certified gold for my album. Nobody be saying any of that … Y’all so worried about me. Whatever y’all worried about, get the f--k off my d--k. DJ Akademiks, you’s a f--king lame. Stay off my d--k you f--king lame a-- dude. If I ever see you, I will smack the f--k out you. I swear to god on my son."
