Former ‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Yung Berg, aka Hitmaka, is accused of pistol-whipping his girlfriend, who was hospitalized with a broken nose, and the case has now been turned over to LAPD who are investigationg the case.
According to the police report, obtained by The Blast, Hitmaka (real name Christian Ward) the rapper/producer and his GF are in “a dating relationship”…and “suspect and victim became involved in a verbal dispute. The suspect pistol-whipped victim (numerous times) resulting in verifiable injuries.”
The woman reported it to the LAPD and claims the incident went down at a private residence in Los Angeles around 5:00 am on Saturday morning.
The report is classified as ‘intimate partner violence.’
After taking the report, LAPD issued an emergency protective order which restrains him from coming within 100 yards of his alleged victim. The rapper is also ordered not to contact her directly or indirectly in any even by electronic means, and cannot go near her home.
The order will expire on March 20, 2020, where if she wants an extension she will have to file a restraining order in Los Angeles Court.
The alleged victim was hospitalized on Saturday, March 14, 2020, and was treated at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. She was eventually diagnosed with a “closed head injury, closed fracture of nasal bone, and facial lacerations.”
One part of her face required recieved “several stitches” and even the hospital records show the injuries stemmed from an “assault.”
We have obtained brutal photos and videos of the damage, including from inside of the hospital room where you can see her face is extremely swollen. In the photos, it is also evident her face has been bleeding and the broken nose is starting to cause two black eyes.
The LAPD is currently investigating the case, but it is unclear at this point if they will arrest Yung Berg, or bring him in for questioning.
This is not the first time the hip-hop star has had legal issues similar to this, back in 2014, he was fired from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood after he was arrested for a domestic assault.
At the time, ABC News reported a 911 call was placed about an assault at the Gershwin Hotel in Manhattan, where his girlfriend Masika, said he “grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the ground, dragged her by the hair and punched her in the face.
The show issued a statement saying, “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.”
They continued, “Yung Berg was arrested on November 5th and charged with criminal obstruction of breathing in connection with an assault on fellow cast member Masika Tucker, the arrest took place in a New York hotel several hours after the taping of the reunion special for Love & Hip Hop Hollywood had wrapped.”
The case is currently under investigation.
