Playboi Carti was arrested in the Atlanta area for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend during an argument, TMZ reports.

The aspiring rapper, real name Jordan Carter, allegedly choked the unnamed woman during an argument over a paternity test.

According to the arrest affidavit, obtained by TMZ, the woman told police the aspiring rapper grabbed her by her throat and pushed, until she couldn’t breathe. She told police she thought she was going to die.

The victim told officers she’s lived with the troubled rapper since July 2022 and was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of the alleged incident on Dec. 20.

The victim told cops she and Carter argued about a paternity test, which she claims escalated to a physical assault. She told police a witness intervened to stop the fight, and when she ran to her car, she was allegedly attacked by Carter again.

The victim told police Carter tried to yank her out of the car and put his hand over her mouth as she tried to scream. She used the vehicle’s SOS feature to call police. When cops arrived, police say the woman had visible injuries to her neck, chest and back, according to TMZ.

Carter, 26, was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault. He was hauled off to the Fulton County Jail, where he sat for an updated mugshot to add to his growing collection.

He has had several run-ins with the law in recent years, including an April 2020 gun and drug bust in Georgia, according to Page Six.

His attorney, Brian Steel, told TMZ, “Mr. Carter was falsely accused. Pursuant to my communications with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, this case will be dismissed without any prosecution or litigation.”

Carter also shares a toddler son with fellow rapper Iggy Azalea, 32. They dated from 2018 until 2020 when they broke up over Carter’s alleged cheating ways.
