Fayette County animal control is investigating an alleged case of animal cruelty involving a popular rap artist.

The incident happened at the intersection of Nicholasville Road and Jesselin Drive. Wednesday. Witnesses say they spotted two people get off Flo Rida's tour bus and kill a rabbit. A spokesperson for the rapper insists no one on the bus had anything to do with killing the animal, but that an unknown man walked up to their bus and did it.

According to Perez Hilton website, Flo Rida, who was in town promoting his new CD, released a statement about the incident, reading, "While no one in my party was in any way involved in any incident, the media report that I saw was sickening. As an animal lover, I would never want to see cruelty inflicted upon them."

An animal control official told LEX 18 that police have been in touch with the tour bus manager. Animal control also says they have sent the animal remains away for a necropsy for more evidence.
