Lil Uzi Vert could be in some big trouble.
According to several hip-hop news outlets, a scuffle started when the rapper pulled up to the Dialog Cafe in a Cadillac SUV on Friday around lunchtime.
He got out to confront his former girlfriend, Brittany Byrd, who was having a meeting with rapper SAINt JHN over lunch. Lil Uzi Vert reportedly threw a punch at JHN before attacking Byrd. He punched her several times in the face, according to witnesses, before pointing a gun at her chest and then fleeing.
Byrd was taken to the hospital. Both men reportedly fled the scene before police arrived.
“Uzi has been stalking Brittany since they broke up. Uzi is toxic and mentally and physically abusive,” Byrd’s manager said. “He has been for years.”
