Rapper Tyga arrested for domestic violence in Los Angeles


Tyga was stopped Tuesday morning, suspected of the crime of domestic violence in Hollywood, authorities said. The 31-year-old rapper, real name Michael Stevenson, visited Hollywood station LAPD and his bond was set at $ 50,000, they said.

The Los Angeles Police Department said the alleged incident occurred on Monday, but did not disclose any other details. The arrest comes a day after Tyga’s ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson shared a series of photos of her with a black eye on her Instagram account.

In an article, Swanson wrote: “I have been abused emotionally, mentally and physically and I no longer hide it.” In subsequent posts, she took issue with TMZ’s information that she had shown up to the rapper’s house at 3 a.m., acting belligerently and screaming.

“@tmz_tv, I didn’t introduce myself ‘shouting’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave he physically assaulted me and refused to let me go for hours,” he said. she adds. “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed that it must have come to this, but I have to defend myself.”
