Coolio came third in Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year
Rap star Coolio has been charged with drug possession after being arrested at Los Angeles International Airport.
The 45-year-old, whose real name is Artis Leon Ivey Jr, was later released on $10,000 (£7,000) bail.
The singer's manager, Susan Haber, told the AP news agency that she had not spoken to the rapper since his arrest on Friday and could not comment.
The Grammy-award winner is best known for his 1995 hit Gangsta's Paradise and for appearing in Celebrity Big Brother.
He was a controversial figure in the British reality TV show, provoking strong reaction to his behaviour from some of his fellow housemates and members of the public.
He was accused by some of making offensive jokes and comments, both of a racist and sexist nature.
However, he stayed the course of the show and eventually came third.
He was beaten by Terry Christian and overall winner Ulrika Jonsson.
