Bobby Shmurda’s girlfriend, Kimberly Rousseau, appeared in court yesterday (July 22) and pled not guilty to charges of promoting prison contraband and criminal possession of a weapon, The Source reports.

Last month, she was caught giving Shmurda a sharp metal object while visiting him in prison.

If convicted, Rousseau could face up to seven years in prison.

Bobby Shmurda’s success came overnight with his initial hit “Hot Nigga,” but since being signed to Epic Records, the rapper has been more known for out of the studio occurrences than musical ones.

The New York emcee is currently in jail and on trial for numerous weapons charges, among others, and now may be in even more hot water as he was reportedly arrested for obtaining a shank from his girlfriend during a recent prison visit.



According to the New York Daily News, Shmurda, real name Ackquille Pollard, was caught on June 21 after a guard allegedly saw his girlfriend, Kimberly Rousseau, pull a black latex glove balloon wrapped in black electrical tape out of her bra and give it to the rapper. According to a criminal complaint, the guard then opened the balloon and discovered a “sharpened metal object,” which could’ve been used later as a weapon. They both would be subsequently charged with promoting prison contraband.

In May, it was reported that Bobby Shmurda was involved in a gang-related jail brawl during which he teamed up with three other Crip members against two Bloods in a fistfight. Prison guards at Otis Bantum Correctional Center used mace to break up the skirmish.

Bobby Shmurda, along with members of his GS9 crew, face over 100 charges including reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon, conspiracy to commit murder in the second degree and criminally using drug paraphernalia. If convicted on everything he faces 25 years in prison.
