Saweetie and Quavo shocking FILMED altercation – The rappers break their silence.

Saweetie and Quavo have broken their silence on the shocking leaked footage of them fighting in an elevator.

What Happened?

A physical altercation between Migos rapper and his now ex girlfriend Saweetie that reportedly happened before their publicised breakup has been caught on camera and was released by TMZ on Tuesday (March 30).

The footage captures their fight in an elevator, which TMZ reported took place in a North Hollywood apartment complex that Saweetie was renting in 2020. In the video, Saweetie is seen taking a swing at Quavo while the elevator is open before trying to pick up an orange Call of Duty briefcase, which Quavo grabs as he drags her to the floor of the elevator. Saweetie appears to remain on the floor for the duration of the elevator ride, and although the video does not capture any audio, the rappers seem to exchange a few words as Quavo exits the elevator and props the door open with the orange case while waiting for her to hoist herself up off the ground and limp out.

The week prior to the video’s release, Saweetie confirmed that she and Quavo had split as she alluded to infidelity.

TMZ also reported that the Los Angeles Police Department has launched an investigation into their elevator altercation.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that LAPD detectives have seen the video, showing the now ex-couple fighting over a video game console box, and cops want to meet with both parties, separately, to discuss what went down.

Our sources say the situation could be considered an instance of domestic violence, where both parties are in the wrong. Cops want to determine what happened before and after the elevator surveillance footage was captured.

Once the police wrap their investigation, they’ll likely turn it over to the City Attorney to review for possible changes.

and NOW, Quavo and Saweetie have finally spoken out for the first time since the video was leaked.

The first to speak out was Saweetie, who’s real name is Diamonté Harper and who’s 27 today.

“This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on, I kindly ask that everyone respect my privacy during this time.”

Quavo (who’s real name is Quavious Keyate Marshall) followed with a statement of his own, saying he never “physically abused” Saweetie.

“We had an unfortunate situation almost a year ago that we both learned and moved on from,” he said. “I haven’t physically abused Saweetie and have real gratitude for what we did share overall.”

LAPD detectives will meet with both parties involved in what could potentially turn into a criminal matter of mutual combat, where both Quavo and Saweetie could be found at fault.

I’ll keep you posted
