Before she was leading Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta to countless Emmy nominations (yeah, right), Joseline b.k.a. “Shenellica Bettencourt” to Miami police, was arrested for the world’s oldest profession.

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris (T.I.)
Despite being one rap’s most visible pieces of arm candy, Mrs. Tip was an accomplice to a drug charge that put the star rapper right back behind bars months after he was barely removed from his last stint in the bing.
Faith Evans (The Notorious B.I.G.)
Long after her and second husband, Todd Russaw were fully established, the former Bad Boy First Lady was busted with DUI’s in 2004 and 2010. Good grief.
Remy Ma (Papoose)
All the other birds in this list have experienced slaps on the wrist compared to the ex-Terror Squadian who has been in prison for the past six years. At least she has Papoose shouldering a brunt of the struggle from the outside.
Back when Kelis was game to don N-word shirts with her Illmatic hubby, she got a little too vocal with the police and they put her in cuffs for disorderly conduct. Too bad they had to say “bye baby.”
Walnita Decuir (Lil Boosie)
Mrs. Bad Azz tried to prove she was a little too down by helping Boosie with his prison capers.

Shante Broadus (Snoop Dogg)
Snoop’s family favors the sticky-icky but in 2008, matriarch Shante was dipping in the gin & juice cabinet and was cited in the outskirts of L.A.
Ecreia Perez (Shawty Lo)
This feisty Atlanta woman was living out her vertically challenged baby daddy’s rhymes when she tried to bring a loaded handgun to court.
Nivea (Lil Wayne/The-Dream)
The former R&B princess-to-be received a mini iron vacation in 2011 when she was driving a little drunk with her baby in the car. For shame.
