Authorities said Wright, 47, was wanted on a “theft warrant” out of Grand Prairie, a suburb of Dallas, for failure to return a rented moving truck.

“Her warrant goes back to April 10th of 2023, when Wright rented a Penske moving truck in Grand Prairie and never returned it, per the rental agreement,” Officer Mark Beseda, a spokesman with the Grand Prairie Police Department, told Urban Hollywood 411 on Friday.

The truck was later located in Shreveport, Louisiana by law enforcement and returned to Texas, Beseda noted.

The neo-soul performer makes frequent appearances on podcasts to discuss sexual abuse in the music industry.

In recent weeks, she’s made a string of wild accusations about some of the biggest names in hip hop and R&B, including Sean “Diddy” Combs, who has been accused of sexual assault in at least seven lawsuits since November, and faces a federal investigation into sex trafficking allegations.

On June 2, Wright sat down with YouTuber Armon Wiggins.

Wiggins told Wright many people have described her as “bitter” because she never became a big star, while others have said she has mental health issues.

Wright responded by saying there’s nothing wrong with her, she just wants to bring attention to abuse, intimidation and violence in the music industry.

“No, not at all,” she said about claims that she is mentally ill. “What I find most interesting is that the people who question my mental wellness don’t seem very well themselves.”

Wiggins also asked Wright why she hasn’t been sued for the allegations she continues to make.

“You can’t sue someone for telling the truth,” she said. “That’s the thing with defamation, it actually has to be a lie.”

Wright was born in New Jersey before moving to Philadelphia as a child. Known for her powerful vocals, she collaborated with The Roots, Jay-Z, and Blackalicious.

Described by some as a whistleblower, Wright has alleged young women and men in the music industry are frequently assaulted and treated like “party favors” by powerful singers, rappers, producers, writers and executives.

In previous interviews, the singer said she herself was a victim of sexual abuse early in her career.
