Chicago rapper G Herbo is facing a battery charge after assaulting the mother of his child, Ariana Fletcher.
G Herbo and Fletcher, who is better known as “Ari” got into an argument Wednesday (Apr. 17) morning, and at some point, Herbo assaulted her, according to Atlanta police, as TMZ reports.
Police said that the rapper then left the location with their son, Yosohn but later returned and after Atlanta police spoke to Herbo, they arrested the rapper for simple battery.
Law enforcement said that Fletcher sustained minor scratches during the altercation that cops are still investigating. It’s currently unclear what triggered the alleged assault.
TMZ has pointed out that perhaps the fact that Fletcher is now dating boxer Gervonta Davis and is about 14 weeks pregnant with his child may have triggered the situation. On Tuesday night (Apr. 16), Fletcher and Davis were both out partying at Allure Gentlemen’s Club in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Atlanta where G Herbo also happened to be present. The trio did not come to the club together. It’s ambiguous whether or not anything transpired between the three at Allure that might have led to the alleged argument and assault the next morning.
Today (Apr. 18), Fletcher took to Instagram to share what allegedly happened. “He kicked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn’t let him in, beat the f*** out of me front of my son then he took my son outside to his friends and had them drive off with my son, hid all my knives in the house, broke my phone and locked me inside and beat the f***out of me again (choked me, punched me in my face and all over my body, dragged me outside on the concrete by hair after his friends drove off with my son, took me in the house and continued beating me,” Fletcher wrote.
“Please don’t speak on no old “relationship play fights” cause this ain’t that…,” she concluded.
The two recently celebrated their son’s first birthday together and shared photos from his birthday party on Instagram.
G Herbo is currently still in jail, and his bond has been set at $2,000.
