Following a physical altercation between Bow Wow (or Shad Moss) and longtime girlfriend Leslie Holden (best known as Kiyomi Leslie), the 31-year-old rapper was arrested on Saturday.
According to The Associated Press, Atlanta authorities received a call from Holden, 27, early Saturday. She claimed Moss had assaulted her.
When the police arrived, Moss countered his now ex-girlfriend’s accusations and claimed that she had assaulted him.
The authorities were unable to figure out who was the “primary aggressor,” so both Moss and Holden were charged with battery.
Holden and the former rapper were taken to Fulton County Jail and arrested, as confirmed by Officer Jarius Daugherty.
“Bow Wow suffered multiple injuries, some of which are visible in his mugshot,” Habachy said. “Ms. Holden’s mugshot, on the other hand, speaks for itself, despite her allegation to police that she broke a fingernail.”
The Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta co-stars reportedly suffered minor injuries. In his mugshot, Moss was pictured with multiple scratch wounds on his face and forehead.
Habachy further revealed that two reported witnesses validated the Let Me Hold You star’s side of the story, suggesting that Holden was “simply out of control and without a doubt the primary aggressor.”
“For no logical reason officers arrested both parties despite having clear-cut evidence that Bow Wow was the victim in the case,” the lawyer added. “Ms. Holden beat him with a lamp, bit him on his side, and spit on him while Bow Wow continually made efforts to avoid her.”
