Newly Released Video Shows Quavo And Saweetie In A Physical Altercation Last Year Before Their Split
Since they split up earlier this month, a video from last year emerged of the former flames in a physical fight. Quavo and Saweetie were recorded inside an elevator in the "Icy Girl" rapper's North Hollywood apartment complex, which shows Saweetie swing at her former beau in front of the elevator door. The Migos member then pulled his now-ex girlfriend into the elevator and wrestled her to the ground.
The pair may have been fighting over an orange Call of Duty case, which Quavo, born Quavious Marshall, kept away from Saweetie for the duration of the video. The 27-year-old remained on the ground and Quavo made room with some bags for a man outside to enter when the door opened on a different floor, but the man did not come inside.
When the door opened for a second time Saweetie didn’t get up, Quavo used the orange case to keep it open and eventually she got up and walked out.
As OK! previously reported, Saweetie, who was born Diamonté Harper, announced she was "single" on March 19.
"I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character," she tweeted. "Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women. I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation."
The 29-year-old "Too Blessed" rapper clapped back saying that while he normally doesn't share his personal life with the public, he felt the "need address this" so there were "no false narratives."
"I know you want to make this into a show so I’ll play my part just this one time," Quavo responded in a now deleted tweet. "I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best."
"Take care," Saweetie added.
The pair first started dating in 2018. After the breakup, there were rumors that Quavo repossessed the Bentley he gifted the "My Type" singer for Christmas, which are said to be untrue, as previously reported by OK!.
"I liked him before he even knew me. He was my only celebrity crush. I always thought he was fine. I liked his voice. I thought he was sexy," Saweetie gushed to PEOPLE in January, only weeks before they called it quits. "I think the reason why we've lasted so long is because we're like friends who are really, really, really attracted to each other," she added. "I think that's what keeps it fun. It keeps it different. We're able to really just kick it. Like wherever, whenever."
Neither rapper has since commented on the new video footage. TMZ was the first to report on the altercation.
