Cruising in style wasn’t the reason T.I. got sent back to the bing last week, just two days after being moved to a halfway house. It’s who was on the bus with him that got him in trouble.

Yahoo reports that the rapper was sent back to federal prison after officials found out an unauthorized manager and a TV producer were traveling with him on his way home to Atlanta.

As we reported, T.I., 30, is set to debut a VH1 reality show on Dec. 5 at 10 p.m., chronicling his life after serving nearly a year of hard time for parole violation, which stemmed from a 2008 weapons conviction.

T.I. had his wife, Tameka Cottle Harris, manager Brian Sher, and producer Cris Abrego, the co-president of 51 Minds Entertainment, which handles several reality TV shows (Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business, La La’s Full Court Life) in attendance during the ride.

However, Abrego insists that no business was being handled on the bus, as the TV deal had been negotiated and agreed upon earlier in the summer.

At press time reps from VH1 did not respond to inquiries regarding how these recent events would effect the show.

    He just keeps makin bad decisions!

    • Ooops

      You’d think they’d be smart enough to clear the people around him.

      • Joe

        Why does anyone even care about TI’s life after serving 1 year behind bars? Well I guess just the gang bangers and wanna be rappers which accounts for 30% of the population….

      • Mike

        I love him and Inter-RacialDating.com was amazing

    • ronald

      Don’t b so naïve man, bad decision? Making clean money?

  • Eric Ries

    They are out to get his black ass and there is no way he’ll be free again. Uncle Sam has his behind. He’s forever damned. Poor soul. So talented and yet so majorly messed up.

  • keisha

    So basically he is back in a tazpayer funded prison because he was attempting to make sure he had a career and salary and would not be on the taxpayer teet. Makes since. Also isnt the prison recitivism (sp?) rates so high because people have difficulty getting employment. This just seems petty, unjustified and costly.

    • Charles does not surf

      I’d mention spellcheck, but I think that is the least of your worries.

      • @Charles..

        Her comments were spot on. As long as we can understand what she’s saying, why be so picky about spelling?

  • PL

    Brother can’t catch a break. Can’t keep him down forever though. Only a matter of time before he gets out and makes his millions.

    • Charles does not surf

      I’ll bet you those millions he’ll be back in jail soon enough and none the wiser.

  • sam

    Finally a celebrity that isn’t getting cuddled by the law.

    • mallah

      Your comment would have more validity if Lindsay Lohan had did hard time.

    • anonymous

      Haha! “Cuddled”. I’m sure you meant “coddled” but “cuddled” is much nicer.

    • @Sam

      @Sam- The problem is that pretty white women like Lindsey Lohan can commit serious offences and get slapped on the wrist while minority celebrities go down nine times out of ten. I’m not saying that it’s ok for minorities to break the law and not get punished, but the rules should apply to everyone.

  • Quan

    Dumb ass

  • anonymous

    Isn’t being gainfully employed a condition of probation?? So if he was on the bus discussing business, wouldn’t that be a step towards making sure the probation requirements are met??? I don’t quite understand.

  • Jay

    Okkaaayyy….. I am not completely understanding what he did wrong this time; can someone explain it to me in layman terms what was his grand mistake this go around.

  • Anon

    How come Flavor Flav never went to jail for being on VH1?

  • ronald

    Leave the king in peace, just being in da same bus with an unauthorised manager? Come on guys, there is something more behind this, racism and spiritual battles. Don’t judge him. He is being scotched up fo quitting the game
