R&B singer D’Angelo was arrested in New York on Saturday after allegedly attempting to pay for sex with an undercover police officer who was posing as a prostitute, according to the AP.
D’Angelo’s worldwide manager Lindsay Guion issued the following statement: “We know there is a lot of speculation in regard to the arrest of D’Angelo in New York City this past weekend. We would like his fans and the public at large to know that D’Angelo has pled not guilty — and is contesting the allegations made against him. Also know that, he is in good health and extremely excited about his forthcoming new album. D’Angelo would like to personally thank all of his fans for the outpouring of concern, and appreciates if all would allow the American justice system to resolve the matter before jumping to any conclusions.”
