NOLA reports, Big Freedia pleaded guilty Wednesday (March 16) in a New Orleans federal courtroom to a charge of federal government theft related to housing vouchers.

A bill of information charged the internationally known Bounce music star with stealing more than $1,000 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development between 2010 and 2014. U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite’s office accused her of continuing to receive housing assistance after she was making too much money to be eligible for it. Freedia had acknowledged in a March 1 statement she continued to receive aid as her fame quickly ascended and her “financial situation changed.”
