Quavo and Saweetie's violent elevator incident is under investigation by The Los Angeles Police Department.

Quavo, 29, and Saweetie, 27, fought over a Call of Duty console case in an elevator at her apartment complex in California last year.

Some say Saweetie herself leaked the video to justify dumping the effeminate rapper.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they plan to interview the couple separately to determine exactly what happened.

The LAPD source said the elevator incident is playing out like a domestic violence situation where both parties are in the wrong.

Cops want to know if Saweetie or Quavo was abused by the other party during their relationship. Saweetie is seen swinging on Quavo.

TMZ broke the story, Quavo and Saweetie were both fighting over an orange Call of Duty console case.

Quavo spins his ex around and she slips and hits the elevator floor. He glanced down at her several times and then glanced up at the elevator surveillance camera.

He never once helped her up off the floor.

The City Attorney will likely review the case for possible criminal charges.

Lady Gaga's father says the two thugs who shot the pop singer's dog walker, Ryan Fischer, and stole her two French bulldogs should face harsh punishment.

Ryan Fischer was ambushed on Wednesday night, Feb. 24, while he was walking the pop superstar's three French bulldogs near his home in Los Angeles.

He was approached by two Black males, ages 20 to 25, who shot him once in the chest and fled with two of Gaga's dogs, Koji and Gustav.

Fischer, 30, is stable and recovering well in a hospital.

Gaga praised Fischer as a "hero" and offered $500,000 for the safe return of her beloved pets.

A woman found the two dogs tied to a pole in an alleyway and emailed Gaga, who is on location filming a movie in Rome, Italy.

The woman was instructed to hand the dogs over to police, and sources tell TMZ the "Born This Way" singer plans to honor her word and reward the woman with the finder's fee.

The suspects are still at large, but Gaga's dad, Joe Germanotta, wants them to be charged with assault and attempted murder.

"Letting Koji and Gustav go unharmed was nice but they must be punished for what they did to Ryan," he told Fox News. "Special thanks to the doctors and nurses in the emergency room."

"I am relieved that Ryan is going to be OK and Koji and Gustav were found. Thanks to the LAPD."

Germanotta is the owner of "Art Bird & Whiskey Bar" restaurant at Grand Central Station in New York City.

Lady Gaga's beloved French bulldogs were returned safely after her dog walker, Ryan Fischer, was shot during a botched robbery attempt late Wednesday.

Fischer, 30, was shot once in the chest during the robbery. He is in stable condition and recovering at a hospital.

A woman dropped off the dogs at the LAPD's Olympic Community Police Station, just northwest of downtown, around 6 p.m. Friday, said Captain Jonathan Tippett.

Tippett, who heads the elite robbery unit, said the woman was "uninvolved and unassociated" with the violent dognapping incident. He did not say how she came into possession of the pooches.

Lady Gaga's represented arrived at the station and confirmed the two dogs are Koji and Gustav.

Lady Gaga, who is in Rome, Italy filming a movie, shared a slideshow of the missing dogs on Instagram on Friday. She repeated her offer of a $500,000 reward for the return of her dogs -- no questions asked.

"My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness," she wrote.

Sources close to Gaga tell TMZ she cried "tears of joy" when she heard Koji and Gustav were safe.

It is unclear if the woman who dropped off the dogs is eligible to claim the reward.

In her post, Gaga declared her love for Fischer who nearly gave his life for her dogs.

"I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You're forever a hero," she wrote in an Instagram post.

Police described the dognappers as two Black males, 20 to 25 years of age. The shooter had blond dreadlocks. They fled the scene in a late model white Nissan Altima.

The Los Angeles Police Department has opened an investigation into Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, for cleaning out one of their corporate accounts.

Nicole is being investigated by the LAPD for alleged embezzlement, sources close to the case tell TMZ.

Dre's business partner, Larry Chatman, recently filed a police report, claiming Nicole, 50, withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars from their business account without authorization.

Larry had previously alleged similar allegations in legal letters fired off to Nicole's attorneys in the past few weeks, and the LAPD launched an investigation into the case.

In the report to the LAPD, Dre's team claims Nicole cleaned out a corporate account, stealing $385,029 from the label she co-owned with Dre.

As TMZ previously reported, Dre, 55, called out Nicole for making 2 bank withdrawals -- which totaled the $385k -- after filing for divorce. Nicole claims she had a right to withdraw the cash because her name was on the corporate account.

Nicole, pictured during happier times with Dre, could face up to 20 years in prison if she is convicted of embezzling funds from the now defunct business.

Nicole's legal team tells TMZ Larry's claims against her are nothing but a smear attempt and a PR stunt because, so far, she is losing the court battle. Her attorneys maintain she's done nothing wrong.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) released body camera footage and surveillance of a violent incident that took place inside the LAPD's Harbor Community Police Station on Sept. 26.

Body cam footage shows a white Hispanic male entering the police station lobby and knocking a cop flat on his back.

The suspect, later identified as 29-year-old, Jose Guzman, then pistol-whipped the fallen cop, who called for help when Guzman fled with his service weapon.

Guzman fired at a pursuing officer who retreated back inside the police station. Cops later caught up with Guzman, pulled his vehicle over, and took him into custody without a single shot or Tazer being fired.

A loaded 9mm Berretta semi-automatic pistol was recovered from Guzman’s vehicle.

An attorney for Migos star Takeoff dismissed allegations of forcible rape as "patently and provably false".

The "MotorSport" rapper, real name Kirshnik Khari Ball, made headlines on Wednesday after he was slapped with legal action from an unidentified plaintiff.

The woman claims the 26-year-old Georgia native forced himself on her during a private house party in Los Angeles in June. The private party was hosted by Daryl 'Durel' McPherson, an occasional DJ for Migos.

After the alleged rape, the woman drove herself to a nearby hospital for a rape kit. Medical staff observed physical evidence of forceful rape and notified Los Angeles Police Department officials.

The woman is suing for sexual battery, assault, and emotional distress, but Takeoff's lawyer is confident he will be able to clear his client's name in court.

His attorney, Drew Findling, tells TMZ, "We have reviewed the allegations and have similarly done our own due diligence.

"What has become abundantly clear is that the allegations made against Takeoff are patently and provably false. The claims and statements made regarding this lawsuit indicate that the plaintiff's representatives have not spoken with relevant witnesses or reviewed available evidence."

Findling said Takeoff, who is in a longterm relationship with LaKeya Darshay, does not have a rapey personality.

"Takeoff is renowned for his artistic talent as well as his quiet, reserved and peaceful personality," Findling continues. "In this instance, those known personality traits have made him a target of an obvious exploitative money grab."

"As his counsel, we are well aware and well versed on the importance of civil and criminal prosecution of true sexual assaults. This is not one of those situations."

The alleged incident remains under investigation by the LAPD, but the plaintiff's lawyer, Neama Rahmani, is unhappy with the lack of progress in the case.

"Justice has been slow in this particular case," Rahmani tells Billboard.com. "It is a month and a half since the rape and no arrests have been made."

LAPD investigators are notorious for dragging their feet while investigating crimes involving celebrities.

On the night he died, rapper Pop Smoke held a private party at the $2.5 million home he leased from Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp.

The 20-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper, real name Bashar Jackson, had signed the lease a month before he was gunned down inside the house by four masked home invaders at 4:29 a.m. on Feb. 19.

10 days after his death, the LAPD have hit a roadblock, unable to identify the four suspects seen on surveillance video entering the house on the 2000 block of Hercules Drive in Los Angeles.

About 20 people attended a party at the home to celebrate Pop Smoke's recent album release. But detectives say they have no leads due to a lack of witnesses.

Law enforcement tell TMZ that people are unwilling to talk about what they saw.

The potential witnesses cops have spoken to keep changing their stories, or telling outright lies. To make matters worse, cops wasted precious hours viewing videos online that turned out to have no connection to the case.

One Instagram blog with thousands of followers posted surveillance footage that purportedly showed the shooting inside the house. But the video turned out to be footage from a deadly home invasion in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Cops are having trouble coming up with a motive for the murder. Adding to their frustration, the victim lived in Brooklyn, but spent time on the West Coast. Which means cops have had to spend extra time tracking down witnesses who returned to the East Coast.

Pop Smoke was not a household name when he died, but his murder boosted sales of his music, including his 2019 breakout hit "Welcome to the Party."

For two days after his death, Hercules Drive was lined with TV trucks and fans paying tribute to the drill rapper.

When a reporter visited on Friday afternoon, the street was all but empty, except for two construction workers painting a house nearby.

"It was impossible for a few days," one neighbor told reporter Tarpley Hitt, of theDailyBeast.com. "But now it seems weirdly normal."

While Hitt canvased the neighborhood looking for witnesses, three young girls drove up to the cream colored house, taking pictures of the small shrine that included flowers and a crumpled dollar bill.

"We love him," one of the girls told Hitt. "We only heard about him when he died, from the Internet."

A Los Angeles police union will not defend a LAPD cop who was caught fondling a dead woman's breasts.

On Dec. 4, the union that represents LAPD officers released a statement, saying the union "will not defend an officer accused of fondling the breasts of a dead woman."

The cop was placed on leave after video footage from his body camera showed him abusing a corpse. The footage was viewed during a random check of body cameras.

According to CBS local affiliate KCAL9 News, nearly two weeks ago, the accused cop and his partner, both male, responded to a 911 call that a dead body was found inside of a residence.

The officers confirmed the woman was deceased and one cop left the residence to retrieve paperwork from a patrol car.

While his partner was outside, the accused cop turned off his body cam and then “inappropriately touched the woman's body," LAPD officials confirmed.

The cop was caught because body cameras have a two-minute buffer, meaning they capture two minutes of footage before the devices are activated.

According to KCAL9, the officer turned in his body camera at the end of his shift. The camera was then stored with thousands of other cameras.

The officer in charge of checking video footage from the cameras randomly picked up a camera off the shelf and viewed its content.
