According to multiple reports, rapper Playboi Carti was arrested for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend, who has been living with him since Summer. The report by TMZ shares that the Georgia police arrested him—real name Jordan Carter—for allegedly grabbing her throat and choking her during an argument over a paternity test. Delving deeper into the claims, reportedly, the woman feared for her life, stating that he gripped her neck so hard she could not breathe. According to the unnamed woman, she was fourteen weeks pregnant (December 20).
Playboi Carti’s attorney Brian Steel went on record with TMZ to say the ‘Whole Lotta Red’ star was falsely accused and seemed certain that the allegations would be dropped based on his communication with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office. “This case will be dismissed without any prosecution or litigation.”
“A witness who was at the house during the incident was able to break up the fight. As soon as she got free, the woman immediately darted to her car”, iHeart.com reports.
“That’s where Carti allegedly attacked her again. He reportedly tried to pull her out of the car and covered her mouth while she tried to use the car’s safety feature to call police. When help finally arrived, they noticed visible marks on her neck, back and chest. The rapper was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault”, continues the report.
The woman claims to have been in a relationship with the rapper for the past two years.
