He voluntarily turned himself in on Tuesday.
Rapper Tyga – real name Michael Stevenson – has been captured by Los Angeles Police Department Tuesday morning on a felony domestic violence charge after ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson’s claims he got physical towards her.
“I’ve been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore,” the photo shows her supposed wounds, a black-eyed face which she guarantees a consequence of Tyga’s viciousness.
She then shared screen captures of their text discussion, adding that when she attempted to leave the rapper’s house, he genuinely attacked and wouldn’t allow her to leave for quite a long time. She immediately filed a police report subsequent to the incident.
The arrest happened the day preceding Swanson shared photographs of maltreatment on her Instagram. “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this, but I have to stand up for myself.”
“Hollywood Div booked Michael Stevenson for felony domestic violence (273.5 A PC). The incident occurred on 10/12/21 in Hollywood,” the LAPD’s public information account tweeted Tuesday. Tyga was later released around Tuesday afternoon after posting $50,000 in bail. His court date is set for Feb. 8.
Swanson and Tyga began dating in mid-2021. A rep for Tyga didn’t react for any media sources’ solicitation for input.
