Ne-Yo Says T.I’s Arrest Was Probably Not His Fault

Published: Friday 3rd Sep 2010 by Trent

Ne-Yo is one of the most outspoken musicians in the game so it comes as no surprise that he would have something to say about T.I’s recent arrest. Shockingly, however, the singer/songwriter does not blame the rapper himself. Rather, he says that T.I simply surrounds himself with the wrong people. Check out what he had to say below:

“I just feel that he makes a lot of poor decisions when it comes to the people that he surrounds himself with,” Ne-Yo told The Associated Press in an interview Thursday night.

Array

Ne-Yo said he’s not familiar with the company T.I. surrounds himself with, but “nine times out of 10 when he gets in trouble, it’s not him, it’s the people that he’s with.”

Ne-Yo says it’s time for the multiplatinum rapper to get his life together.

“You’ve been given a bunch of different chances,” Ne-Yo said. “Now is the time to really go, you know I get it, all right, I get it.” {Source}

  3. NUNYA September 3, 2010

  6. Nicole September 3, 2010

    LOL @ the comments! No justification stupidity.

  7. Lala September 3, 2010

    If Neyo doesn’t shut the hell up and stay out of people’s business smh. I wish he would worry about why both his singles flopped and why his album has zero anticipation. Seriously just HUSH. He’s talked more about other artists in the past month than he’s talked about his own album

  8. Chris September 3, 2010

    LMAO @ the comments above.
    Yeah Neyo shouldn’t be talking about other people’s problems in Public. Focus pon ya album Please 😀

  9. Tiff September 3, 2010

    @ Movieman

    Yeah and you know it!!
    But I have to correct you on one thing…T.i is a powerbottom
    that is all..

  10. PLAIN AND SIMPLE September 3, 2010

    Ne-yo talks to damn much. He is talking about TI people he had better watch his self. He acts so damn bichie. Ne-Yo mine you own business. You keep that up no one will buy your cd or anyone you are writing songs for. You got a BIG MOUTH

  11. enufalready September 3, 2010

    Somebody needs to teach him two simple words. NO COMMENT.

  12. Duh September 3, 2010

    @Tiff

    And look what the hell he is doing TALKING TO THE MEDIA . See this is what I was saying before we are not ready we turn on each other in a heart beat

  15. Heaven September 3, 2010

    Welp, no Ne-yo cd for me.

  16. @MissAmandaRay September 3, 2010

    Neyo is exactly right, had T.I. not been surrounded by the unfamiliar company of his wife…and mother of his children, this latest event may have never happens. It should make us all think “how well do we know our significant others or spouses…”

    I feel you Neyo…, and understand completely what you where trying to say. “The ones we love most could make us get arrested for position of controlled substances.

    Neyo, word to the wise… shut up & worry about you own problems – T.I. was wrong, he got caught and he should get the same time as any other fool on the streets.

  17. Kellz September 3, 2010

    Gossiping like the queen he is

  18. BeyHive September 3, 2010

    Look at this queen!! Why do Ne-Yo always feel the need to stick his ass into everything. Asked or not. He did that s*** with the Chris Brown/Rihanna situation….Constantly!

    I guess desperate times calls for desperate measures. No one’s talking about that soon to be flopping album so he chooses to talk about others to keep himself ‘out there’ 🙁

    Notice the ones he ‘shades’ and the one he sticks up for. *SIDE-EYE*

    I guess he considers Tip is the s*** guy in rap 😆

  19. Yellow Gorilah September 3, 2010

    Somebody please give this N**** a SEAT!!

  20. Soulful Roses September 3, 2010

    If Neyosha don’t shut his ass up…

    ———————————————————————————

  24. Tiff September 3, 2010

    but*

  25. gerl boom September 3, 2010

    Lol @ everone sayin Ne-Yo needs to mind his own business yet everyone on this site is in T.I.’s business. Hypocrite much?

  26. Ova It September 3, 2010

    Neyo stays riding somebodys d***.. He loves them 10 inches uncut. With his f***** ass!! Just STFU and concentrate on that ugly cow-licked ass baby your w**** girlfriend is about to spit out! Anywho, nobodies checking for EITHER of they albums. Both T.I., Tinys OMGirlz and Neyo will flop in 2010! #ThatsAll

  27. Kellz September 3, 2010

    Miss Neyquisha…STHD AND STFU!!!!!!!!!!! ALWAYS ALWAYS BUMPING @ THE GUMS…..HAVE A SEAT MISS HONEY!

  28. #Fact September 3, 2010

    Does this guy have a PR person, because as of late, he’s been digging himself a whole he may not able to crawl out of. He was not there when the incident happened, nor does he know the specifics. I just wish he’d refrain from meddling in other people’s business and just concentrate more on his FAILING singing career.

    TI’s PR team is completely silent about the incident, but here’s Neyo roaring his big mouth again.

  29. Lala September 3, 2010

    @Gerl Boom actually no. None of us on this site have or will be talking to any reporters/media about T.I.’s situation. He obviously knows him and considers him a friend so that would mean he should know how to get in touch with him to tell him what he thinks but instead he runs to the first media outlet who would talk to him to flap his gums about something that doesnt concern him. Theres a big difference between doing that and commenting on something on a blog

  30. Rihsus September 3, 2010

    I just feel that he makes a lot of poor decisions when it comes to the people that he surrounds himself with….

    Ne-Yo said he’s not familiar with the company T.I. surrounds himself with, but “nine times out of 10 when he gets in trouble, it’s not him, it’s the people that he’s with.

    Umm…
    I knew Ne-Yo was a fcuking moron but god damn.
    If you’re “not familiar” with the type of company he keeps then how the fcuk could you say he keeps bad company ?
    And I guess he’s implying that T.I. is a couple asshole because he seems to be the one always getting caught whilst his “bad companions” seem to get away Scot free.
    smh.

  31. RosaRubbel September 3, 2010

    This statement is the most stupid shh I read in a long time. I think it’s your own fault when you get caught with illegal substences in your car, not others. This statement is just blaaah.

  32. Rated x September 3, 2010

    lets blame everybody but damn T.I.
    dude buys guns, it was a set up, dude get caught with weed, x…it was a set up..

    neyo shut ur a** up……we all know T.I is not an angel. dude is a felon..
    arrested more than 7 times..
    and hes a** is on probation, so hes stupid a** cant blame nobody but himself…

    its obvious dude likes prison..so put his a** bak in prison

  33. Truthfully September 3, 2010

    Ne-yo needs to just shut up and sit down….anything to stay relevent.this fool….

  34. only1kene September 3, 2010

    WHY DO ALL THE GAY QUEENS HAVE TO BE UP IN EVERYBODY ELSE’S BUSINESS?

    WHATEVER WITH T.I. WAS HIS FAULT! DON’T BLAME THE PEOPLE THAT HE’S AROUND.

    THAT’S LIKE ME LOOKING FOR A PARKING SPOT AND THE ONLY ONE AVAILABLE IS A

    HANDICAP SPOT AND THE PERSON IN MY PASSANGER SEAT TELLS ME TO JUST

    PARK IN THE HANDICAP SPOT AND I LISTEN TO THEM! ARE YOU GOING TO SAY THAT

    BECAUSE THAT PERSON PUT THE THOUGHT INTO MY HEAD THAT IT’S THEIR FAULT?

    HELL NO IT’S MINE BECAUSE I HAD THE OPTION TO IGNORE THEM!

  35. Alexander September 3, 2010

    Ne-Yo is gay

  36. TheYoungLion September 3, 2010

    Thats how you know he a f*****…. he stay gossiping and throwin in his unwanted/unneeded 2 cents.

  37. BeyHive September 3, 2010

    @BLASIAN
    He said Usher sucked AND what’s your point????????

  38. nope September 3, 2010

    Now you know this is a flop comment: IT’S A NEYO , USHER AND JASON DERULO WORLD RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!

    It’s an Usher……world right now. Ne-yo is flopping and Derulo will be gone by his next flop album. He is a singles artist. All that just to shade Chris? You’re delusional.Chris is doing JUST FINE right now.

  39. BeyHive September 3, 2010

    GERL BOOM

    And what are you here for ???????????? This is a gossip website for entertainment purposes. We arent the ones talking to the media. #GERLBOOM to you and Ne-yo the queen of all queens 😀

  40. Imanni September 3, 2010

    LMAO AT THESE COMMENTS! I agree Noesha is always talking about other people situations. Its not even about him being right or wrong he just talks to damn much. Hes the female 50 cent always talking about other peoples problems instead of worrying about his . But I dont just get on him its these media/magazine interviewer as well. I wonder why they always feel the need to ask him about other people all the time? Is he not that interesting himself?

  41. CELEBRITY September 3, 2010

    Just a suggestion to Neyona. Look up the word accountability in the dictionary, and then tell me if TI’s people are still at fault. What a d***** bag.

  42. NikkiIsChillin September 3, 2010

    Now I can say I think Neyo is gay, as well as dumb! Who cares what he thinks. Again, he’s just a celebrity that thinks they are above the law…Okay so its not T.I.’s fault, I think its your fault Neyo! What, that doesn’t make much sense…but neither does Neyo’s comment.

  43. Bluekid September 3, 2010

    Neyo! Neyo! Neyo! Some body is going to hit you in your big dik sucking lip yet.

  44. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) September 3, 2010

    Oh Neyo…..SMH! I think we should hook up for a hot date so I can shut you up for good from talking about other men, Mr sucky lips(with a motto mouth)…lol!

    Wavn hi Bluekid(wink)

  45. Bluekid September 3, 2010

    ~waving hi at Nas 🙂

    I agree with you, Neyo talks way to much!

  46. Sanging September 3, 2010

    Miss Ne-yo is always opinionated but never addresses his own issues, like being gay. Maybe cuz it’s the retards he hangs around with. Yea, that must be it. The hangers ons makes him try to be straight but fails miserably. Time to get your life back together.

  47. Daznielle Jones September 3, 2010

    SO WHAT IF NEYO WANTS TO SAY SUMTING BOUTH IT BUT I BET IF I WAS BEYONCE OR JAY-Z OR KANYE YALL WAS GON BE GOING RIGHT ALONG WITH THEM SO YAL STFU AND SO WAHT IF SOMEONE WANTS TO HAVE A VOICE OF OPINION GG

  48. Jay2010 September 3, 2010

    Ne Yo girl you’re gay, but it’s probably not your fault, honey 🙂

  49. Sterling8 September 3, 2010

    Ne-yo you is dumb you is so dumb!

  50. JR September 4, 2010

    Anyway check out this hot ass performance of Kelly Rowland because f*** Neyo right now

  51. Ciara’s Left Bollock September 4, 2010

    This Queen is forever gossiping. I bet his lips were pursed and his eyebrows snatched for the gawds while he was saying all this.

  52. Robier September 4, 2010

    This bitter ugly lady talks wayyyy to much. Shut ur mouth and sat ur pregnant ass down. Worry about ur child and failed cd

  53. Bluekid September 4, 2010

    I bet he can suck a dik well with those lips!

  54. vegasgirl September 4, 2010

    He really does offer up plenty of opinion on others, no one offered up opinion on him when he was busted for his DUI a couple of years ago. He may be correct in regards to TI’s situation ( even though he CLEARLY said he does not know the company TI keeps, HUH?) but one of these days he is going to get his tender feelings hurt when he comments on the wrong celeb’s situation. He is one of the most vocal for no damn reason celebrities out there right now ( 50 and Fabulous included!)

  55. NICKY September 4, 2010

    WHO CARES !?!! LMAO!!!!

    SEPTEMBER 7TH = RIHANNA ONLY GIRL RELEASE DATE

    GET READY HATERS!!!!!

  56. lilmrsunshine September 4, 2010

    funny how errbody saids ne-yo is gay cuz he talks bout others

    arent yall doing the same thing right now?? only difference his words go round the world nd yours doesnt

    just saying….

  57. Pree-nut September 4, 2010

    I guess its all about pressure and being surrounded by the wrong people as ne-yo said. Its a shame though when T.I was on Larry King he seemed like he was much more focused.

  58. TRUTH September 4, 2010

    oh neyo would you please shut the f*** up

  59. iLoveXtina September 4, 2010

    I think Ne-Gro is implying that T.I. should hang with him & his bootyhole

  60. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) September 4, 2010

    @ Bluekid, you do not wanna know what those lips has been getting up to behind close doors….LMBAO!!!!!!!!!

  61. JonBerry September 4, 2010

    @Plain and Simple,

    I could not agree with you more!

    Although I agree with what he said, in my opinion, NE-H** is like a blood thirsty leech! He always find some opportunity to slither his way into a conversation that NEVER requires his perspective on anything! He is playing nice today, I guess becuase he doesn’t view T.I. as competition.

  62. JonBerry September 4, 2010

    Oh Lord the lone thirsty Rihore stan just arrived 🙂

    Would you pls shut up and take a seat along with She-Yo!

  63. JonBerry September 4, 2010

    @LALA

    Well damn, get him! Very well said. 🙂

  64. BENJAMIN September 4, 2010

    But he’s right though. Whether he is gossiping or not, T.I. does NOT surround himself with positive people to keep his ass away from trouble. However, what happened in West Hollywood was ALL him though. I’m not gonna kiss T.I.’s ass just because everyone else is, he f***** up, so what he gets he deserves.

  65. Misty September 4, 2010

    OMGGGGGG SHE-HO AGAINNNNN! SMFH
    How many f*ckin’ times a week is this b**** gonna spend talking about OTHER PEOPLE?! Some fool had the audacity to question why we’re goin in on him and even went on to say we wouldn’t react like this if Bey or Jay said it. That’s cuz Bey and Jay don’t STAY in people’s business!

    She-Ho has an album and a kid on the way, yet its not enough material to keep interviewers entertained? What a She-Male! Who the hell is this fool to say TI doesn’t keep good company? Aside for Chris, who else does She-Ho kno as a friend on TI’s? #hatinass

    Im getting tired of always seeing commentary from this flopping girl. He always wanna run and tell about what he dun seen or heard. B**** why are we not HEARING or SEEING your work? Maybe you should stay your ass in the studio till you get your next hit–or GET hit! FOOL

  66. JAZ0195 September 4, 2010

    @MISTY LOL

  67. Kevin September 4, 2010

    wtf is he doing!?

    Ne-Yo, keep talking about your album and your music. I’m not gonna buy this album because he hasn’t talked about the sound or direction at ALL.

  68. Me September 4, 2010

    AHAHAHAHAHHHAAAA @ y’alls comments! Everybody is basically saying he should shut up, but yall sound so heated! LOL . I get it and I agree, it’s just funny as hell.

  69. Me September 4, 2010

    LMFAOOO @ Misty “He always wanna run and tell about what he dun seen or heard. “

  70. Me September 4, 2010

    Ok, 4 real I think this is the most hilarious post/comment section I’ve EVER seen on this site.

  71. danny b September 4, 2010

    i think Ne-Yo is such a shady queen…

    but with that said, if Ne-Yo needs to shut up and mind his own business, then all u d*** hoppers that posted on the T.I. post & any other post on this damn site concerning a celebrities drama woes needs to SHUT UP & MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS as well….. double standard no-life-having pressed h***. smh.

  72. okay September 4, 2010

    damn tiny looks like snookie in the mugshot.

    anyway he is right. ti needs to get his S*** together, with big fame comes huge scrutiny..sigh

  73. FreshUrbanEnt September 4, 2010

    LOL NE-YO ALWAYS GOT SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES SITUATION.

    CHECK OUT MY NEW ENTERTAINMENT SITE >>> http://WWW.FRESHURBANENT.CO.UK

  74. SHUT UP September 4, 2010

    I really wish celebrities would show some CLASS and STOP TALKING ABOUT OTHER CELEB’S SITUATIONS!!!! I remember when MJ was going through that ridiculous trial and all these celebrities had opinions (mainly negative) towards him. Mind your own f****** business. Half these celebs don’t like people gossiping and lying about them in the tabloids, yet they do the same things to each other. Hypocritical much???

  75. Misty September 4, 2010

    Ya’ll KNO I had to go there! lol

    And @Danny B
    That is a #fail. This is a BLOG site so obviously it is MADE to cover news and to COMMENT on it. Neyo is not a blogger, a news reporter, a counselor, nor is he even a news commentator. He is a singer/songwriter. We don’t NEED to know how he feels about the situation. Not only do we not NEED it, it shouldn’t even been invited! Is he Ryan Seacrest, or a radio personality? So why should we be eager to hear what he has to say about ANYBODY?
    o…ok

    Bottom line, we are fans so we can speak on when something disappoints us or whatever the case may be because it lets celebs know just how many people are feelin their actions/not. And Neyo should KNOW his ratings are going downnnn downnnn downn!!!! Just STFU foooll!!!

  76. Misty September 4, 2010

    And another thing:

    Even TI’s CLOSE friends and associates, cast mates, etc haven’t even commented on this matter yet, but She-ho’s b**** ass wanna come from nowhere and speak on it. NEYO–take your ass to Toys R Us and start crib shoppin’ or something. And Stay out of people’s ish!

    #thatisall

  77. ciara sexiest woman alive September 4, 2010
