Katie Got Bandz Arrested for Identity Theft

    Cook County Sheriff’s Office

    Chicago rapper Katie Got Bandz has been arrested for identity theft, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office. She was booked on Monday, Aug. 7, and is scheduled for her next court appearance on Aug. 21. Her bail is currently set at $50,000.

    Last we heard, the 24-year-old rapper, real name Kiara Johnson (and also known as Drillary Clinton), was gearing up to drop her Katie Blanco mixtape that’s yet to be released. She initially blew up with songs like “I Need a Hitta” (2011) and “Pop Out” (2013). Rising Chicago rapper Brian Fresco recently collabed with Katie on a song called “Lit.”

    XXL has reached out to Katie’s reps for comment.
