26-year-old rapper Playboi Carti, whose real name is Jordan Terrell Carter, was arrested in Georgia last week for allegedly attacking his pregnant wife, according to reports from TMZ.
The victim has claimed that the rapper tried to strangle her during the attack. She told authorities that he squeezed her throat with his hands until she experienced difficulty breathing. She was fortunately able to escape from his grasp.
Police reports have confirmed that the victim had bruises on her neck after the attack. Playboi Carti’s lawyer, however, denied the accusations and claimed that the rapper was innocent.
The altercation reportedly arose from a dispute over a paternity test, as the couple has been together for over two years. No further details have been provided regarding the incident.
This is not the first time a musician has been accused of violent behavior towards their partner. In recent months, several high-profile cases have been brought to the public’s attention, including the case of American rocker Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner.
In this case, a woman accused Manson of several acts of sexual violence and revealed that he had threatened her. This has prompted a renewed focus on the treatment of women within the music industry.
It is worth noting that these cases are not isolated incidents. Violence against women continues to be a pervasive issue in society, and it is essential that the music industry, along with other areas of society, take steps to address and prevent such behavior.
The allegations against Playboi Carti serve as a stark reminder of the urgent need for more significant action to prevent domestic violence and support victims. With one in three women experiencing some form of physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, it is clear that much more needs to be done to tackle this issue.
As of now, the rapper has yet to release an official statement on the matter, but the case will undoubtedly continue to develop in the coming weeks.
