Tyga has been arrested on felony domestic violence charges following allegations of abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Camaryn Swanson.

In a statement from the Los Angeles Police Department to ABC News, authorities say that Tyga, born Michael Stevenson, turned himself in on Tuesday morning “around 9:00 am where he was arrested and booked for felony domestic violence.”

Tyga’s bail was listed at $50,000, although it’s reported that by Tuesday afternoon, the rapper had quickly bailed himself out.

As previously reported, Tyga’s arrest comes after Swanson took to social media on Monday evening to share photos of the alleged injuries she suffered as a result of what she says was an altercation with the rapper.

In an Instagram Story where she appears to have a black eye, Camaryn tagged TMZ and wrote, “I’ve been emotionally, mentally, and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore.”

According to TMZ, the incident occurred after Swanson arrived at Tyga’s home uninvited. There, she reportedly argued and yelled at the rapper until she was picked up by her mother. Swanson, however, disputes claims that she was told not to show up at Tyga’s home.

Tyga and Swanson have been reportedly dating since the beginning of the 2021.
