BREAKING: Hushpuppi has reportedly been denied bail in the United States




Ramon Abbas A.K.A Hushpuppi has reportedly been denied bail in the United States.

Hushpuppi’s lawyer Gal Pissetzky pleaded for his client to be granted bail arguing that his job as an Instagram celebrity paid for the $10,000 monthly rent on his luxury Dubai flat.

UAE’s The National reported that prosecutors said he could commit crimes with just a smartphone and an internet connection, and that he posed too much of a flight risk.

Reacting to prosecutors’ argument, Pissetzky stated that his client had too much to lose if he flees from the United States.

He told a judge in Chicago by videolink,

“He is loved and respected. He is a celebrity.

“I don’t see the reason why he would want to ruin his credibility in the world and his status rather than stay here and face this allegation.

“Anywhere he goes, people will know. Having grown up very poor in Nigeria, Mr Abbas is now paid to pose with high-priced items such as Louis Vuitton bags that people would buy after seeing his posts on Instagram.

“He is an influencer. That’s a job today, as much as it is hard to imagine. That’s a full-time job.”
