Tyga is breaking his silence in the wake of domestic violence allegations against him.
On Tuesday, the rapper turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department after his ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson accused him of physically assaulting her during a dispute.
The L.A. Country Sheriff’s inmate record shows that the 31-year-old, whose real name is Michael Stevenson, was booked for a felony on Oct. 12 at 9:10 a.m. and released several hours later on $50,000 bond.
However, Tyga denies that he was arrested or charged, and says that he voluntarily took himself to the LAPD’s Hollywood station and cooperated with authorities.
“I want everyone to know that the allegations against me are false. I was not arrested,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “I took myself into the police station and cooperated. I have not been charged with any crime.”
According to TMZ, Swanson showed up at Tyga’s home around 3 a.m. on Monday and was acting belligerent at the door. He let her inside where the screaming continued. Swanson claims Tyga put his hands on her during their dispute, and shared images of the injuries to her face.
“I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself,” she wrote on Instagram.
She also posted her alleged text conversation with Tyga, who she started dating early this year. “I can’t believe this is how it has to end,” she wrote in one text. “Honestly I’m so heart broken and didn’t think you were capable to ever do this to me.”
Tyga’s next court date is scheduled for Feb. 8, 2022.
