“Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, effective immediately,” the network posted on its website Friday (Nov. 7).

Berg's girlfriend, Masika Tucker, said he "grabbed her by the neck, threw her onto the ground, dragged her by her hair and punched her in the face,” according to ABC. The arrest occurred several hours after the taping of a reunion special for Love & Hip Hop Hollywood.

The fight started after Berg’s credit card was declined during a night out, TMZ reports.
