The woman explained that she met with the “Whole Lotta Red” rapper to discuss her being pregnant but that turned into a violent argument. During the physical altercation, a witness allegedly tried to assist her and break the fight up. However, as soon as she got to her car, she stated the rapper attacked her once more. Carti allegedly pulled her out of the car, placing his hand over her mouth when she tried to use the S.O.S. feature to call the cops. Police confirmed that they found visible injuries on her neck, and chest.
Brian Steel, the lawyer for the rapper, mentioned the charges won’t stick. Furthermore, he stated Carti faces false accusations in this case.
“Mr. Carter was falsely accused,” Steel advised TMZ in a press release. “Pursuant to my communications with the Fulton County District Attorney‘s office, this case will be dismissed without any prosecution or litigation.”
