Tyga, an American rapper, has been arrested for allegedly abusing his ex-girlfriend, model Camaryn Swanson, in a domestic violence incident.
The 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, turned himself in to the Hollywood station of the Los Angeles Police Department on Tuesday morning, October 12, according to public information officer Lizeth Lomeli.
Early Monday, officers were dispatched to the domestic violence incident, according to Lomeli.
According to a statement on the LAPD’s social media account, the “Taste” singer was arrested for felony domestic assault. An LAPD spokesman confirmed the tweet’s veracity to USA TODAY.
According to jail records, Stevenson was released after paying a $50,000 bond.
Stevenson’s ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson posted photographs of suspected abuse on her Instagram Story the day before his arrest. Swanson posted on Monday that she had been “physically assaulted,” though she didn’t mention Stevenson by name.
The persons involved in the reported altercation with Stevenson were not confirmed by the LAPD.
Swanson wrote beside a photo of herself with a wounded eye, “I’ve been emotionally, mentally, and physically tortured and I’m not concealing it anymore.” “I’m so humiliated and ashamed it had to come to this,” she said in another shot, “but I have to stand up for myself.”
