According to TMZ, Tyga and Swanson got into an altercation at his Hollywood Hills home late Monday night. A source close to the rapper told the outlet that Swanson was “shouting” on Tyga’s doorstep and was seemingly intoxicated.

Swanson later addressed the report on her Instagram Story, writing, “I didn’t show up ‘screaming’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave he physically assaulted [me] and refused to let me leave for hours.”

 

The 22-year-old model also posted a photo of the injuries she said were inflicted by Tyga; in the post, she has visible bruises on her face and what appears to be a black eye. She wrote, “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.”

 

In one post, Swanson wrote: “I’ve been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore.” In subsequent posts, she disputed TMZ reports that said she showed up at the rapper’s house at 3 a.m., acting belligerent and yelling.



“@tmz_tv I didn’t show up ‘screaming’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave, he physically assaulted and refused to let me leave for hours,” she added. “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.”

 

It’s unclear when Tyga and Swanson broke up, but they first went public with their relationship in the spring. Tyga notably dated Kylie Jenner for years before they split in 2017.
