T.I.'s lawer dismisses early prison release reports

A lawyer for the currently incarcerated rapper T.I. has dismissed recent reports that he will be getting an early release from prison. 

The 'Whatever You Like' star is currently spending a 10-month sentence for a probation violation at the Arkansas Forrest City Correctional Facility. He is nearing the end of his jail term, which is set to finish on September 29, and has been tipped to leave before his time is up.

His lawyer, Jonathan Leonard, has now shot down rumours that he will walk free one month early and released a statement that explained his contact with the Bureau of Prisons is limited:

"The Bureau of Prisons they won't give you the information (about T.I.'s release) until the very last minute... You don't have any real contact with them (prison officials); they don't communicate with you and they don't tell you when exactly he's gonna be released."
