Tay-K Denies Wanting Fans to Send Him Money in Jail
Contrary to tweets his team posted to his Twitter account on Saturday (Aug. 31), Tay-K doesn’t want his fans to send him money while he sits behind bars.
On Thursday (Sept. 5), the 19-year-old rapper, who was sentenced to 55 years in prison for murder in July, someone using his Twitter account denied that he wanted his fans to send him money for his commissary account.
"Idk why tf that was tweeted on my twitter i don’t need money do y’all need some money?" he wrote. "Me bein broke don’t make no sense my fans can write me tho."
As we previously reported, Tay-K’s team used his Twitter account to tweet out the address where people can send letters and put money on his books while behind bars. Those tweets that included requests for commissary money, books and letters have been deleted.
Tay-K is in jail after being found guilty of murder in connection to the 2016 killing of Ethan Walker. In addition to his 55-year sentence, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for one count of aggravated robbery and given an additional two 13-year sentences for two other counts of the same crime. He was hit with $3,000 in fines for each charge.
The embattled rapper has another legal case in front of him. Prosecutors want Tay-K to be tried as an adult in a separate capital murder case in Texas' Bexar County. The case stems from the April 2017 murder of 23-year-old Mark Saldivar. Police believe Tay-K shot and killed Saldivar at a Texas Chick-Fil-A when he was already on the run from the law.
