‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Yung Berg’s alleged domestic assault victim has broken her silence about what happened the morning of the brutal assault, and is defending herself against accusations made by the rapper. The woman has also announced she has lawyered up with a very famous attorney.
In a statement, obtained by The Blast, Talia Tilley, says she is in extreme emotional and physical pain after allegedly being pistol-whipped by the hip-hop star.
“I want to respond to the allegations that are being made against me. They are completely false. At no time during the assault on me were the police ever called to his residence about any robbery or suspicious activity happening in his backyard. I have not and would never be a part of what I am being accused of. I was in fact the only person physically hurt and the only person that called the police that morning. I’m an honest, decent woman from a military family. I’ve always had a good character and people who know me personally would never question that. I have never threatened anyone nor committed any crime,” she begins.
She continues, “I can’t describe the amount of physical and emotional pain that I am suffering from, the embarrassment of everything being said against me, most of all the false accusations. My life has been turned upside down. I’ve also lost my means of earning a living as a model, and my credibility in this industry has been stained.”
The mode explains, the “LAPD is currently investigating this crime and I am freely and willingly providing them with anything to prove my innocence of what happened that morning. As of now I have retained counsel and am being represented by Lisa Bloom. My family and I will not rest until I get justice.”
We broke the story, Tilley was hospitalized after she says Yung Berg pistol-whipped her and broke her nose. The model reported the incident to LAPD and was given an emergency restraining order against the rapper and producer.
Yung Berg (aka Hitmaka) responded with a statement from his attorney saying he is the real victim in this case and insinuated Tilley was the part of a ‘planned and coordinated’ home invasion robbery and that he was only defending himself at the time.
Hitmaka says he has turned over surveillance video proving his side of the story and LAPD is investigating.
But, the model has hired celebrity attorney, Lisa Bloom, who is known for representing victims of assault against celebrities, and she points out the rapper is not denying he assaulted her client.
“I am proud to represent Talia Tilley, who immediately went to the police to report an assault against her at the home of Yung Berg, also known as Hitmaka,” a statement from Bloom begins.
She continues, “He’s made multiple statements insulting her, but strangely, he has not found the time to den her accusation that he assaulted her. He has also not explained how she sustained the disturbing injuries at his home.”
Bloom ends her statement with this, “The heartbreaking pictures speak for themselves.”
The Blast has obtained photos of the brutal injuries Tilley sustained during the incident, included a new one several days after the attack.
At this point, no arrests have been made, and LAPD continues to investigate the incident.
