According to the report, this online platform understands that he will however spend only nine years in prison as he has already spent two years in prison in the US.

Recalls that Hushpuppi was arrested in Dubai in June 2020, the United Arab Emirates, over an extensive fraud scheme that has robbed victims of their money in the U.S, Qatar, the United Kingdom, and other places.

He was then extracted to the United States where he was charged with fraud and money laundering. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to engage in money laundering with multiple people within and outside the US to ladder the proceedings.

The socialite however bagged only 11 years in prison after he appealed to US Judge Otis Wright to temper justice with mercy and a lighter jail term after scoring high in cleaning activities while in prison.

He commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for doing a thorough job in bringing him to justice and apologized to his family

Hushpuppi’s Instagram page, which has 2.8 million followers, is no longer on the image-sharing platform. It is however unclear whether it was officially removed from Instagram or if the page was temporarily disabled by someone with access to it.
