Rapper Tyga Arrested for Domestic Violence
Rapper, Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson popularly known as Tyga has been arrested on a felony domestic violence charge following allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson.
According to The Los Angeles Police Department’s media relations division, Tyga turned himself in Tuesday after refusing to speak with police Monday at his home.
The department said no one expected him to walk in. “Due to confidentiality, no information regarding the victim is being released,” the LAPD said in a statement.
A source close to Tyga claimed to TMZ that Swanson showed up at his house at 3 a.m. Monday “shouting” on his doorstep and seemingly intoxicated, at which point he let her in and the situation escalated. However, the 22-year-old model alleges that the rapper sent a car for her while the couple was seemingly in the process of breaking up.
Swanson posted receipts of her text conversation with Tyga on her Instagram story:
“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,” Swanson wrote alongside images of injuries allegedly inflicted by Tyga.
Swanson filed a police report Monday after leaving the rapper’s house, where the alleged incident took place.
Swanson and Tyga first appeared on each other’s Instagrams in spring, and by July, Swanson had been seen out twice with a ring on her finger.
