Cruising in style wasn’t the reason T.I. got sent back to the bing last week, just two days after being moved to a halfway house. It’s who was on the bus with him that got him in trouble.

Yahoo reports that the rapper was sent back to federal prison after officials found out an unauthorized manager and a TV producer were traveling with him on his way home to Atlanta.

As we reported, T.I., 30, is set to debut a VH1 reality show on Dec. 5 at 10 p.m., chronicling his life after serving nearly a year of hard time for parole violation, which stemmed from a 2008 weapons conviction.

T.I. had his wife, Tameka Cottle Harris, manager Brian Sher, and producer Cris Abrego, the co-president of 51 Minds Entertainment, which handles several reality TV shows (Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business, La La’s Full Court Life) in attendance during the ride.

However, Abrego insists that no business was being handled on the bus, as the TV deal had been negotiated and agreed upon earlier in the summer.

At press time reps from VH1 did not respond to inquiries regarding how these recent events would effect the show.
