Rapper Tyga faces a felony domestic violence charge after his ex-girlfriend, Cameron Swanson, accused him of physical and mental abuse.
The Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood division booked Tyga, whose real name is Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, on Tuesday morning, the department’s media team said on Twitter.
He was released from custody after posting a $50,000 bail, jail records show.
TMZ reported that the rapper turned himself in on Tuesday, hours after Swanson accused him of abuse on Instagram.
“I’ve been emotionally, mentally, and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore,” she said in an Instagram story alongside a photo of her bruised face. “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up to myself.”
While her Instagram stories have expired, PEOPLE published screenshots.
