Is Ari testifying against G Herbo? Rapper pleads not guilty for fraud as lawyer says Taina Williams's pregnant
Fletcher has been identified as a witness in the case. Herbo has been instructed not to speak to his ex about his criminal charges
According to G Herbo’s attorney, the rapper and his fiancée, Taina Williams, are expecting their first child together. On Wednesday, December 9, during a court hearing this revelation was made. It was the hearing for Herbo's federal fraud case, in which he and several of his crew members are accused of using stolen credit cards and IDs to make extravagant purchases.
As mentioned in Complex, according to the Chicago Tribune, Herbo's attorney informed the judge that Williams is four months pregnant with Herbo's child. The lawyer then requested the court to allow the 25-year-old artist to travel to New Jersey so he can visit Williams and their unborn baby. The judge agreed to the request. The couple has confirmed the attorney's claims. Williams has no children at the moment, while Herbo — also known as Herbert Randall Wright III — has a son named Yosohn with his ex, Ariana Fletcher. As per the Complex report, Tribune also reported that Fletcher has been identified as a witness in the case. Herbo has been instructed not to speak to his ex about his criminal charges.
This hearing was the Chicago rapper's first court appearance for the federal case. As per the Tribune, Herbo appeared via videoconference and pleaded "not guilty" to charges of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and aggravated identity theft. He faces up to six years in prison if convicted on all charges.

As reported by MEAWW, Herbo made headlines last year after getting arrested for allegedly assaulting his child’s mother and ex Fletcher. Ace Showbiz had reported that a video of the arrest has resurfaced where the rapper is heard saying that he cheated on Taina Williams with Ari.
In the video, posted by Real World Police on YouTube, Herbo could be heard saying, “For what it's not even worth it. For what! She could have just gave me my s**t. Why she want to hold on to me. She want to f**k me or something. What is it, we did that already. I just f**ked her the day before yesterday," reports Ace Showbiz. The report claims that the artist admitted that he loved Taina and that he didn't care about Ari at all.
He was arrested in April 2019 and according to a report in AJC.com, Ari told officers that they were having an argument before she was assaulted by the musician. According to the report, she suffered minor scratches. According to a 2019 XXL Mag report, in a now-deleted Instagram post, Ari had elaborated the incident: “He kicked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn't let him in, beat the fuck out of me in front of my son then he took my son outside to his friends and had them drive off with my son. Hid all my knives in my house, broke my phone and locked me inside and beat the fuck out of me again.. I have a black eye, my body scraped up from being dragged outside, bruises and cuts all over my body… Please don’t speak on no old ‘relationship play fights’ cause this shit ain’t that.”
These remarks were made by the Internet and individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently and nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
