Back in September, Young Jeezy pled “not guilty” to a weapons charge while on tour with Wiz Khalifa’s “Under The Influence” show. This morning, the Orange County D.A. threw out the charges as the court could not find substantial evident.

Jeezy and his crew were found in possession of 2 illegal ak-47s on Jeezy’s bus while being questioned for a shooting that took place at one of the tour stops. Soon after the arrest, we learned that the guns belonged to Jeezy’s security chief, but that he was in the hospital at the time. DNA evidence has proven that none of the six men arrested had even touched the firearms in question. TMZ reports “All 6 had their money, jewelry, clothing and other personal items seized, even though it had nothing to do with the alleged offense.”

Jeezy spoke to TMZ: “I pray this had nothing to do with race but it definitely had nothing to do with evidence. I knew that the allegations and charges were based on zero facts. I’m relieved that the truth has prevailed.”

Much has happened over the past several weeks with the divorce between Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa. Much of the happenings, we haven’t even reported in respect to their privacy. Interesting enough, just moments ago, Wiz took to twitter to wish Amber a Happy Birthday, as she turns 31 today.

No reason to speculate that the two may be getting back together or anything like that, but she is still the mother of his son and as far as we know, the two don’t “hate” one another. This is just good to know that the two may be on “good” terms.

Update: Amber has responded with a tweet of her own
