Tyga Arrested in Los Angeles on Felony Domestic Violence Charge

Tyga was arrested Tuesday (Oct. 12) due to a felony domestic violence charge following an alleged dispute with 22-year-old ex-girlfriend Camaryn Swanson. The "Loyal" rapper, 31, reportedly turned himself in to Los Angeles police after the altercation.

Swanson posted to her Instagram in the past regarding the alleged abuse from Tyga (real name: Michael Stevenson), including a photo of a black eye with the caption, "I've been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore," and tagging TMZ. Sources told TMZ that Swanson went to the rapper's Hollywood home early Monday and she alleges things turned violent once inside.

Swanson posted an alleged text conversation with Tyga on her Instagram story and did not conceal his phone number. The chat detailed what Swanson says were the texts that led up to and followed the altercation, refuting accusations that she arrived "uninvited" and "screaming." She also said she was "embarrassed and ashamed," but had to "stand up for myself."

According to TMZ, officers noticed visible marks on Swanson's face when they took the report. Tyga's bail is set at $50,000.

It's unclear when Swanson and Tyga broke up, but they first posted about their relationship on socials in the spring. Tyga previously dated Kylie Jenner for years before their breakup in 2017.
