Rapper T.I.’s legal woes have cost him a lucrative deal with deodorant company AXE.
The Live Your Life hitmaker was handed an 11-month prison sentence last week after a Georgia judge ruled he had violated the terms of his probation following a drug possession arrest in California.

T.I., real name Clifford Harris, Jr., must surrender to authorities by 1 November – less than a year since he was released from prison after serving time for illegal weapons possession charges.

And his latest spell behind bars has cost him his spokesmodel gig for AXE.

A rep for the company tells TMZ.com, “We will no longer feature T.I. in our promotional campaign.”

T.I., who signed with AXE earlier this year, has already been removed from the company’s website.
