Kevin Gates and his family have been going through hard times this past week. After thinking he was about to be released from jail on Friday (March 24), after serving out a 180-day sentence, the rapper was held on outstanding warrants in another state. He remains locked up, and is currently in the process of being extradited to Cook County, Ill. to possibly face more charges.
Gates’ wife, Dreka, recently released a statement on her Instagram page thanking fans and asking them to keep her husband in their thoughts and prayers during these trying times. “To everyone that’s rooting for Kevin right now, THANK YOU, but PLEASE shift your thoughts, prayers, energy, etc. towards the idea of Kevin being home and enjoying life as a free man,” she wrote. “Do NOT dwell on the things that have been put out by the media. Their only goal in anything is to grab/seek attention, not necessarily to release information that is FACTUAL.” read full note below from her IG page.
