Rapper Desiigner has been ordered to register as a sex offender and sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to indecent exposure. The “Panda” rapper was caught masturbating on a plane during a flight from Japan to the United States in April. According to documents obtained by TMZ, a judge has also ordered Desiigner to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and drug testing. He is prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and must perform 120 hours of community service. Desiigner’s case has now been closed.
Desiigner, who previously announced his retirement from rapping following the death of fellow rapper Takeoff, faced legal trouble after federal agents arrested him for exposing himself in the presence of flight attendants. The initial charging documents revealed that Desiigner claimed he had not received much attention from women while overseas.
In November 2022, Takeoff, a member of the hip-hop group Migos, was fatally shot at a private party in downtown Houston. A month later, Patrick Xavier Clark was arrested and charged with murder in connection to Takeoff’s death.
