Rapper Tyga, real name Michael Stevenson, turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department after accusing his ex-girlfriend, Cameron Swanson of domestic violence.
The alleged incident happened on Monday morning when Swanson arrived at Tyga’s home. It’s not clear what happened while Swanson was there, but a source close to Tyga told TMZ That Swanson went to Tyga’s house at 3 a.m. when he told her not to come here. The source says she “started screaming at the top of her lungs” when she arrived. The source continued that Swanson was “under the influence” when Tyga let him into her house.
Law enforcement sources told the publication that Swanson called the police after his mother picked him up from the location of the alleged incident. According to TMZ, the responding officer referred to “visible marks” for his report on Swanson.
A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson was unable to confirm whether Swanson had filed a police report, but said, “Officers from the LAPD’s Hollywood Division responded [to] report of an incident. “
“Hollywood Div Books Michael Stevenson for Domestic Violence (273.5a PC). The incident happened in Hollywood on 10/12/21,” the LAPD’s public information account tweeted about the incident.
