Rapper Tyga arrested after domestic violence allegations
The rapper's ex-girlfriend shared photos of herself with a bruised eye on Instagram.
Rapper Tyga was arrested in a felony domestic violence investigation on Tuesday morning and later released on a $50,000 (€43,245) bail.
According to E! News, Tyga - whose real name is Michael Stevenson - turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department after ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson alleged he had “emotionally, mentally and physically" abused her.
TMZ is reporting that a source informed them Camaryn, who was allegedly under the influence, went to Tyga's residence at 3AM on Monday morning and began "shouting at the top of her lungs."
During a heated argument, the rapper allegedly put his hands on Camaryn.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Camaryn called the police after her mother picked her up from Tyga's house following the alleged incident. Responding officers saw "visible marks" on her body.
Camaryn later posted photos of herself showing injuries she said she sustained during the incident.
She shared images of herself with a bruised eye to her Instagram stories, along with screenshots of text messages between the two, showing Tyga ordering a car for her to come to his home. She claims she did not show up to his residence uninvited.
"I didn't show up 'screaming' or uninvited. When I tried to leave he physically assaulted [me] and refused to let me leave for hours.
"I'm so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.
"I've been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I'm not hiding it anymore."
Camaryn reportedly started dating Tyga earlier this year but it is not known when the couple broke up. The rapper previously dated reality TV star Kylie Jenner and American model Blac Chyna.
Tyga is said to be cooperating fully with the LAPD. He has yet to comment on the allegations.
