RuPauls Drag Race star Widow Von'Du was arrested by Kansas City police and charged with domestic violence.
Von'Du, real name Ray Fry, was arrested on Memorial Day after he reportedly posted an Instagram Live video in which he said, "Some white boy tried me and got his a** beat."
According to the affidavit, obtained by TMZ, Von'Du assaulted his live-in boyfriend after a drunken binge.
The affidavit claims Von'Du punched the victim in the face four to five times, strangled him and pushed him into a bed frame, knocking him unconscious.
According to TMZ, the victim regained consciousness and escaped. He was transported to a hospital, where he required 14 stitches to his face and head.
In a video showing Von'Du's arrest, the star who is in full drag, said the victim's white "privilege" did not extend to his apartment.
"I am being arrested for defending myself in my apartment! As a Black man in this city, I am being arrested for defending myself IN. MY. APART-MENT! And just because his ass got beat up because he would not leave when I asked five times, I am being arrested!"
Von'Du, who does not identify as a male-to-female transgender, was forced to remove his drag makeup and bouffant wig for his mugshot.
Von'Du was released from jail after posting 10% of a $50,000 bond and is currently on house arrest. The reality star is due back in court on June 7.
