YK Osiris Arrested for Allegedly Choking Girlfriend, Biting Her Face
YK Osiris has just been arrested.
According to a report TMZ published on Tuesday evening (Nov. 5), the Florida singer was arrested in Atlanta after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend at his birthday party in September. A police report states that the woman told police that Osiris choked her and bit her face.
On Monday (Nov. 4), Georgia's Fulton County Sheriff's Office booked Osiris on a felony charge of aggravated assault by strangulation.
The woman claims that the violent incident began after she saw a photo of another woman wearing just a towel on his phone. She says she called him out, which led to the two yelling at each other before Osiris threatened to slap her.
She says Osiris, who recently claimed he'd been arrested for armed robbery in the past, eventually chased her up the stairs and into the bathroom where he allegedly choked her and bit her face. She claims that she bit his lip in self-defense.
Police say they saw a noticeable mark underneath her left eye, which is where she says she was bitten. The "Freaky Dancer" performer has reportedly been denied bond and is set to appear in court for a preliminary hearing later this month.
This news arrives less than a month after Osiris dropped off his major-label debut album, The Golden Child. The new LP includes his breakout single "Worth It" and other songs like "Shakira" and "Change."
