Rapper and reality TV star Joe Budden has responded to the New York Police Department after they tweeted he was wanted following what is thought to be a dispute with his ex-girlfriend.

A picture of the Love and Hip Hop star was tweeted with a request for help with tracking him down.

The tweet states he is wanted for the robbery of a 25-year-old female on 18 August in Manhattan.

In one reply, the 33-year-old said he was going to sue the police department.

In another, he told the NYPD's account to alert the "Man hunt" that he would be at an Astoria strip club on Saturday night.
