Big Freedia Headed to Rehab Prior to Sentencing for Welfare Fraud


Big Freedia is managing to avoid prison for the time being while she awaits being sentenced for welfare fraud by going to drug rehab.

According to Bossip, Freedia has agreed to attend rehab for substance abuse and will submit drug tests to her probation officer as part of a modification of the terms of her bail.

As you may know, Freedia pled guilty in March to one count of theft after stealing almost $35,000 in government funds by illegally collecting Section 8 benefits.

It’s unclear what drug(s) she’s entering treatment for.

Freedia is facing up to a decade behind bars and up to a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is scheduled for June 16.
