[lastfm]T.I.[/lastfm] is no stranger to legal problems being on parole and recently being popped by the popo for possession of ecstasy. However, the people at AXE body spray, which T.I. is the face of, find no part of T.I.’s legal trouble funny and his recent arrest might cost him a job.

The rapper is currently under contract with AXE with a promotional partnership with the brand. He was slated to headline multiple mystery concerts and online campaigns to promote the body spray alongside [lastfm]Mary J. Blige[/lastfm].
The body spray company has not parted ways with the rapper, but has expressed their displeasure with T.I.’s recent arrest through a statement released to the press, saying:
We are troubled by the arrest. In order to preserve the legal process, AXE will comment at a later time, as appropriate. In the meantime, we are reviewing our promotional activities.
Currently, T.I. is under investigation by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office. It is unclear if any actions will be taken by the U.S. Attorneys Office due to T.I.’s arrest and subsequent parole violation. Probably he should try to not get busted for drugs anymore. Especially while on parole. Just sayin’.
