Gucci Mane has been denied bond on charges stemming from a fan’s accusation that the rapper hit him in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub.
The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was in custody on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon and appeared in court Wednesday.
The rapper’s attorney, Drew Findling, tells WSB-TV that Davis’ criminal history made it difficult for a judge to set bond. Fulton County jail records show Davis has been arrested 10 times since 2005.
Fox network says Demi Lovato is returning as a judge of The X Factor.
The singer-songwriter will be back alongside series creator Simon Cowell when the singing competition begins its third season this fall.
Britney Spears and record producer Antonio L.A. Reid departed after Season 2.
