Playboi Carti accused of choking pregnant girlfriend over paternity test: report

Rapper Playboi Carti has been arrested in Georgia for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend during an argument about a paternity test, according to a report.

The “Shoota” rapper was accused of grabbing the woman by the throat and pushing her on Dec. 20. She claims he held her neck until she struggled to breathe, TMZ reports.

Playboi Carti, whose real name is Jordan Carter, was arrested for felony aggravated assault.

The woman, who has not been named, told police she thought she was going to die, according to the arrest affidavit obtained by the outlet.

The woman, who has reportedly been dating the rapper, 26, for over two years and has been living with him in his Georgia mansion since July 2022, told cops she was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of the alleged attack.

The argument broke out and it quickly became physical as the woman brought up taking a paternity test for her unborn baby.

The woman told cops that a witness tried to break up the fight and she ran to her car —only to be attacked by the rapper again.

She told cops the “Miss The Rage” rapper tried to remove her from the car and put his hand over her mouth while she tried to use the car’s SOS feature to call 911.
