This Is Not His First Arrest
Mystikal was arrested in 2004 for sexual battery and sent to jail for six years. After his release, the rapper was registered as a sex offender. Mystikal’s house was routinely inspected by police, something the rapper willingly cooperated.
His home was inspected just before Halloween in 2014, to ensure the safety of children, to which the rapper said, “I don’t have an offense against no young kids, or nothing like that, which don’t make my offense no better, but still, protect your kids man, protect your kids, our kids are the most important thing we have.”
Mystikal Has Two 12-year-olds
No, they are not twins! They are nine months and from different baby mamas. When asked about Mystikal’s kids adjusting to their father’s fame after his jail time, he said “More important than [the fame], we have to kinda reconnect. There’s been a lot of space between us,” he added that they would communicate through letters and phone calls, but that just wasn’t enough. His son, Million Tyler, and daughter, My’chelle Tyler, were in pre-school when he was behind bars, and he wanted to make up for the six years he spent away from them.
In the wake of the horrible news going on here in Baton Rouge, I really needed this moment with my kids. #sadtimes #praying #stillfindingawaytobegrateful #leaningonGod #BatonRougeStandingUp
