According to the Madison PD, the woman claims the incident went down after the rapper -- real name Joseph Cartagena -- performed at a concert at The Orpheum Theater last night.

Cops say the woman claims, "shortly after the concert had concluded ... [the woman] found herself inside of a Cadillac Limousine with Joseph Cartagena and other male subjects all with the destination of a hotel located on Madison's west side."

Cops tell TMZ Fat Joe was detained for questioning -- but he was not arrested. He was released this morning -- sometime before 7 AM.

So far, no arrests have been made and police tell us the investigation is ongoing.

I'm a 33 year old woman and I don't just "find" myself in random places like the back of a limo with a bunch of rap artists I don't know. It's unfortunate it happened but it sounds like she should spend her money on counseling as opposed to a lawsuit that is only going to hurt her more. This is a rookie mistake, not one that should have happened at 33.

watches to look the same as women's diamond watches, though. The men's diamond watch is larger and more masculine looking. They look more powerful looking than a woman's diamond watch.
