Accused pimp's brother says it's all an "image"


The brother of a Beaumont rapper says the rapper's "pimp image" was just that: an image, not who he really is.

Ivory Pantallion III is in a Lake Charles jail on a $1 million bond.

He and Jessica Morgan, from Tennessee, were arrested Monday.  They are accused with prostituting a 19-year-old Alabama woman.

After we first aired this story, another woman called us claiming Pantallion ran a big time prostitution operation and that he was her pimp.

But Pantallion's brother, who doesn't want to be identified, says it's not true.

He says it was just a role he played as part of his entertainment personality.

"My brother being in the entertainment industry did have a character he portrayed on camera, anytime the opportunity did present itself, just like Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and even Ozzy Osborne do on a daily basis," said Pantallion's brother.

The brother went on to say that the women who have accused Pantallion were left alone numerous times and had phones.

He says he doesn't consider that kidnapping.
