Born Joann Marie Slater, the 25-year-old was accused of shooting a male friend in the head inside of a Georgia hotel room in December 2020, according to reports. She claims it was an accident and told cops “that the gun “fell off” of a table and fired at least one round.” According to TMZ, she’s out on a $60,000 bond as she awaits her trial on house arrest.
Along with house arrest, Slater was ordered to have zero contact with the alleged victim Jonathon Wright or any of his family members and close associates and she can’t possess any firearms. When the incident happened, the audio of the 911 released of the singer screaming with emotions telling the victim she loved him.
