In an arrest affidavit obtained by TMZ, the woman, who has not been named, told police that the rapper allegedly grabbed her by her throat and pushed her. She explained that he held her neck until she barely could breathe. And even told police that she thought she was going to die.
The woman explained to officers that she’s been in a relationship with the rapper for two years. In addition, she’s lived with him since July 2022. And was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of the alleged altercation.
According to the woman, the altercation took place on December 20. She explained to the police that she wanted to speak to the rapper about the baby. And a conversation about the paternity test led to the argument, which then led to the alleged attack.
The woman told officers that a witness tried to jump in and de-escalate the situation. When this happened, she ran to her car and said the rapper allegedly attacked her again.
She went on to explain that Playboi Carti allegedly tried pulling her out of the car. And put his hand over her mouth when she tried to use the vehicle’s SOS feature to call the police.
When the cops arrived on the scene, they say she had visible injuries to her “neck, chest, and back.”
