Tyga surrenders to police after domestic violence allegation against rapper


Rapper Tyga visited the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday morning after his ex-girlfriend accused him of assaulting her.

Tyga, whose legal name is Michael Stevenson, attended the Hollywood division at around 9 a.m. regarding a domestic violence allegation, the LAPD confirmed to NBC News. The rapper was being held on $ 50,000 bond and was later released Tuesday afternoon, according to reservation records.

Its representatives did not immediately respond to an NBC News request for comment.

TMZ initially reported on Monday that Tyga’s ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson showed up at her “belligerent” home, citing anonymous sources. Swanson then took issue with the report on her Instagram Stories, claiming she had not shouted and alleged she was invited.

Swanson, who said she was ashamed to make it this far, showed a screenshot that allegedly showed Tyga sent a car to come over. She alleged that “he physically assaulted me and refused to let me go.”

She also posted a photo of herself with what appeared to be a black eye, tagging TMZ in the photo.

“I have been abused emotionally, mentally and physically and I no longer hide it,” she wrote. Representatives for Swanson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
