Former MTV “Making The Band” star Chopper has been charged with felony sex trafficking after being busted by an undercover sex worker in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to the undercover sex worker, the rapper, whose real name is Kevin Barnes, slid in her DMs and offered her money to be a part of his stable.

She said Chopper bragged about traveling the world and having 7 homes across the country, including a home in Las Vegas.

But, he told her it wasn’t safe to do business in Las Vegas because the police were cracking down.

An investigation was launched into Chopper after they allegedly found several posts related to prostitution and pimping on his Instagram account.

The undercover said she had a phone interview with Chopper and after passing a test, he told her that he would make her a part of his “stable.”

She said he told her to pack her bags, go to the airport, and meet him in Charlotte, North Carolina.

But, she stalled by telling him she was scared to leave home.

He then got angry and got verbally aggressive telling her to make the trip, and he demanded a $2000 fee.

After compiling their evidence, including Chopper’s social media post, the direct messages he sent to the undercover, the phone interview, and his fee demands they felt they had enough evidence to make an arrest.

Chopper was arrested earlier this month in Maryland, and he’s being extradited to Las Vegas to face sex trafficking charges.
