A warrant has been issued for Wiz Khalifa's arrest.
The 26-year-old rapper failed to appear for a scheduled court appearance in El Paso yesterday for a hearing over a misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana.
When Judge Ricardo Herrera learned neither the "We Dem Boyz" star - whose real name is Cameron Thomaz - nor his lawyer had arrived for the hearing, he issued an arrest warrant, TMZ reports. The charges stem from an arrest in May when the rapper - who has 17-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose - was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
The rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
Wiz Khalifa was arrested for marijuana possession yesterday morning.
The 26-year-old rapper was detained at an airport in El Paso, Texas, after officers from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allegedly found a "green leafy substance" in his luggage before he boarded a flight to Dallas.
A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that the "Black And Yellow" hitmaker, who has 14-month-old son Sebastian with wife Amber Rose, was taken into custody and turned over to local police. The "We Dem Boyz" rapper shared several images online from behind bars, including a "jail selfie" in which he appeared to not be wearing any trousers.
Despite creating the hashtag "FreeTrapWiz," on Twitter and poking fun at the incident, he later hinted that he was becoming increasingly frustrated: "I wanna drop 28 Grams but they got me locced up. Soon as I get out, the tapes comin out. Fucc that... They're tryna figure out how many grams I had. How ironic [sic]."
Amber Rose has given birth to a boy.
The 29-year-old model and fiance Wiz Khalifa welcomed their "perfect" first child Sebastian Taylor Thomaz into the world on Thursday. Wiz, 25, tweeted, "Happy Birthday Sebastian 'The Bash' Taylor Thomaz!. Everyone welcome this perfect young man into the world."
Amber hinted she was close to her due date last week when she announced that she would not be online again until after their baby's arrival, as she wanted to focus on relaxing. Writing on her Twitter page, she said, "Hey Rosebuds & Rosestuds Muva won't be back on twitter until Wizbud is born I need 2 meditate & focus on our Lil boy Luv u talk soon - Muva (sic)."
She previously revealed that she was planning to give birth in a pool at home and wanted Wiz to be the first person to touch their child: "I don't want no medication. We take home birthing classes to teach us how to do it, and we're gonna have our midwife, and when the baby's head comes out, he's gonna be Dr. Wiz. He's gonna be the first person to touch the child. No doctors, no gloves."
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa are having a baby boy.
The model - who is expecting her first child with her fiance - accidentally revealed the sex of their forthcoming child on social networking site Twitter in a tweet thanking one of her friends for purchasing an all in one sleepsuit decorated with a picture of Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash for their baby.
"My friend Maria bought our Lil Boy this Slash onesie..... Oops did I say Lil Boy??? (sic)" she wrote.
It is not known whether the 29-year-old beauty - who is in her second trimester - genuinely meant to reveal whether she is having a boy or a girl, but earlier this month the "Black and Yellow" hitmaker refused to say whether the couple are having a son or a daughter: "I do know, but then [Amber] told us not to say yet. We'll wait until she's ready."

Wiz Khalifa has been accused of a hit-and-run incident.
Los Angeles police officers are keen to speak with the rapper after a woman made a complaint alleging he smashed into her car and then fled the scene. According to gossip website TMZ.com, the alleged victim made her complaint last Wednesday, saying she had been working on a music video with Wiz and the crash happened around midnight as people were leaving the set.
The 25-year-old rapper - whose real name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz - has not yet spoken with police about the alleged incident.
Wiz Khalifa has been arrested for marijuana possession.
The "Black and Yellow" rapper was busted by cops in North Carolina after the officers pulled over his tour bus following his concert in Winston-Salem on Tuesday night and discovered 11.39 grams of marijuana after searching the vehicle, according to TMZ.com. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office has revealed Wiz was cited for possession of a controlled substance and then released and he now must appear in court to face charges at a later date.
This is the second time in 10 days Wiz - who is engaged to model Amber Rose - has been found in possession of cannabis. The 24-year-old hip-hop star was cautioned for the offense by police after he was discovered in a hotel room on April 21 smoking a joint following complaints from other guests.
Although Wiz - real name Cameron Jibril Thomaz - tried to get rid of the evidence by throwing the drug-laced cigarette out of his window before letting the police in, the officers recovered the joint and the musician then confessed to having another 3.7g of marijuana in his pocket.
