Singer Jaheim Has Been Charged With Animal Cruelty After Allegedly Starving 15 Dogs!, By Victor Omondi, Posted November 5th 2021

Singer Jaheim is in serious legal trouble.

According to The New York Daily News, “Put That Woman First” singer has been arrested on allegations of animal cruelty. Police said they found 15 dogs in appalling conditions at Jaheim’s home in New Jersey. Reports also say that a few of the dogs were discovered in kennels coated in filth and water.

Police discovered the dogs on Labor Day. On the morning of the holiday, they were summoned to check a report of a “puppy in distress.” Six dogs were discovered in the driveway when they arrived at the house. One of the dogs became unresponsive and had to be put down.

In a news release acquired by the media outlet, prosecutors said that “additional pets were located inside separate crates that were partially filled with several inches of water and dog waste.”

Jaheim, 44, was apprehended outside the Hillsborough residence. Authorities discovered more animals in danger in the home after handcuffing the singer.

Officers heard barking from inside the residence while they treated the dogs located outdoors. When they arrived, they discovered nine more dogs “in various degrees of emaciation.”

The dogs were left without food or water, according to police. Two of the dogs were sent to a veterinarian’s emergency facility for treatment. The dogs that survived were taken to Long Hill Kennel in Hillsborough. In total, 14 dogs made it out alive.

Twelve dogs were mixed-breed pit bull terriers, including the sole one who died, two were American Staffordshire terriers, and one was a mixed breed boxer.

The R&B performer, born Jaheim Hoagland, made his music debut in 2001 with the single “Just In Case.” “Anything” and “Fabulous” were among the other singles that followed. Ghetto Classics, his sixth studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2006.

The platinum-selling R&B singer has been charged with third-degree animal cruelty and failing to provide required animal care. It’s unknown whether he’s hired an attorney to represent him.

His court date has not yet been set, and he has not yet issued a statement.
