Fabolous is facing aggravated assault charges after allegedly attacking Emily Bustamante, the mother of his two sons.
According to court documents, the rapper allegedly hit Bustamante seven times in the face earlier this month. She apparenrly lost her two front teeth from the violence. He also threatened her father and brother in the couple’s New Jersey home.
TMZ leaked video of the incident on its website on Saturday.
The former Love & Hip Hop couple is said to have argued over text when Fabolous found out that his long-term girlfriend was in Los Angeles without his knowledge.
Bustamante told police that Fabolous texted that he wanted to “hit her in the head with a baseball bat” and that he would “kill her” but he “did not want to go out like that,” NorthJersey.com reports.
When she called her father and brother to her home to move Fabolous’ two guns, “due to her fear that they may be used against her,” he also threatened her family.
“Emily says she feared for her life, and remembered Fabolous has 2 handguns in their home in Englewood, NJ — so, she called her father to remove them before Fab got home. She told cops … Fabolous was infuriated when he arrived at the house to find her father and brother there, and went to look for his guns,” according to TMZ.
In the TMZ video, Fabolous can be seen being held back as he shouts as Bustamante and her father.
Fabolous was arrested Wednesday on a domestic dispute and making a terroristic threat charge. He has yet to release a statement.
