Rapper Playboi Carti Has Been Arrested After Allegedly Choking His Pregnant Girlfriend
It looks like rapper Playboi Carti might be having a very special Valentine’s Day… in jail. The 26-year-old rapper was arrested in Georgia for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend during an argument about a paternity test.
The incident took place five days before Christmas. According to the report, he grabbed the woman by her throat and held on until she started having trouble breathing.
The woman, who has not been named, told police she thought she was going to die, according to the arrest affidavit obtained by the outlet.
Carti has been arrested for felony aggravated assault. The woman says she had been in a relationship with Carti for two years and had lived with him since July 2022. She was 14 weeks pregnant when the assault occurred.
She told police a witness jumped in to try and break up the fight, and when she was able to escape Carti’s grasp, she ran to her car … where she claims he attacked her again. The alleged victim told cops Carti tried pulling her out of the car and put his hand over her mouth as she tried to use the vehicle’s SOS feature to call police.
Of course, Carti is denying the assault. He had his lawyer, Brian Steel, send out a brief statement to TMZ, writing that his client was “falsely accused” and he believes this case will be dismissed without any prosecution or litigation.
For what it’s worth, police who responded to the call back in December say the woman had visible injuries to her neck, chest and back.
We’ll see how this plays out. Not a good look for Carti.
