Rapper Playboi Carti was released on $100,000 bond for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend over a paternity test. His girlfriend told police she arrived at 3750 Tuxedo Road NW in Atlanta to talk to Carti, whose real name is Jordan Carter to talk about their child because she was 14 weeks pregnant. He responded by grabbing her by the throat and pushing her into the bushes to which she said 2 men stood around and did nothing. She eventually broke free, escaped to her car where he followed her and resumed the fight.

In comes his ex Iggy Azalea who then began making posts starting with veiled remarks like “Been there. Done that” on Twitter, followed with “Warned you.” Later on she spoke about her relationship with him calling it “serial abuse.” And as for his arrest, she called that “karma.” She added. “Imagine having a pregnant girlfriend and pretending they don’t exist until it comes out you like to abuse them too [and] rarely visiting your actual son unless [it’s] because you’re running from whatever problems ya got going on in Atlanta [and] the press with your serial abuse of woman.”

In a full statement by Carti’s attorney Brian Steel, he said “Mr. Carter was falsely accused. Pursuant to my communications with the Fulton County District Attorney‘s Office, this case will be dismissed without any prosecution or litigation.”

My thoughts on this is that he came out as bisexual in 2021 in a Highsnobriety piece. Well, he just in response to being gay that he was simply “being himself.” With that being said, nearly all men I’ve ever met that have fits of blind rage tend to be in the closet. And it has more to do with not being comfortable with themselves and so they take it out on the world. If he did in fact do this, we hope he works on whatever it is that’s causing him to behave this way. Because let’s just say the paternity test said he was NOT the father. That still doesn’t give him permission to choke the life out of the woman. We’ll be reporting on how this case turns out and whether his attorney is actually right or not.
