According to the sources, the singer was arrested after a 17-year-old Brazilian model allegedly lodged a complaint for sending inappropriate pictures. He also promised her a job in a Bollywood movie.
This is not the first time that the singer has faced charges of inappropriate behaviour. He was accused of forcibly kissing the Bollywood's controversial actor Rakhi Sawant and was involved in a fight with an audience member during a show.
