Allegations & Claims
The cops were called to Fabolous and former Love & Hip Hop star Emily B’s home Wednesday night (March 28). According to TMZ, Emily — who has dated Fab on-and-off for the past 15 years — summoned authorities after the “Can’t Let You Go” rapper allegedly physically assaulted her.
This story is still developing, with the details coming in slowly but surely. TMZ reports that Fab willingly surrendered to police officers around 8:30 PM Wednesday. He was taken into custody from the Englewood, New Jersey home he shares with Emily.
With his lawyer, Alberto Ebanks, in tow, Fab headed to the station where he was reportedly booked for two felonies: aggravated assault and making a terrorist-like threat. According to the outlet, rather than being sent to jail, the rapper was cited for the alleged altercation and given a notice for a court appearance.
Ebanks spoke to certain media outlets on behalf of the Brooklyn-born artist. He told Billboard, “I’ve known Fab close to 20 years and believe he is incapable of engaging in the alleged conduct.”
Fabolous himself did nothing more than caption a string of Instagram photos. Around 10 PM, the rapper shared pictures from a performance with Lil Kim, writing, “Your strongest enemy’s the one who knows your weak spot.”
Emily B, on the other hand, hasn’t posted anything on social media in a few days. She’s vented her thoughts about the father of children plenty of times though… The first season of Love & Hip Hop gave viewers an inside look into the couple’s lives from Emily’s side.
From the jump, the shoe designer and stylist used her time on the VH1 show to talk about being in a long term relationship with the rapper that felt like a “secret.” She expressed wanting Fab to acknowledge her publicly while venting that “this while life could end at any minute,” leaving her high and dry.
During an interview with VIBE Vixen, the star said that being on the reality show was a major change for her. “For many years, I never answered any questions about him. I’ve been with Fab for eight years, and I’ve never been asked anything about him, so this is all new for me,” she stated. “It comes with the territory of doing a reality show.”
Secrets and More Secrets
Late last year (2017), rumors that the couple — who share two children together, two-year-old Jonas Jackson and 10-year-old Johan Jackson — had secretly gotten married sparked. During an angry rant against AirBnB, Emily wasn’t as careful as she have been.
After being kicked off the platform for violating their Terms of Service, the star blasted the company for not properly explaining themselves. She posted a copy of her violation notice onto Instagram in the hopes of pressuring the company to reinstate her account.
“Dear @airbnb .. I’ve only used your service twice and had excellent reviews (swipe left) I had no issues. Why is it that no one could tell me why my account is deactivated? To read ‘this decision will not be reversed’ is very upsetting especially since I had a good experience using #airbnb”
However, AirBnB’s suspect behavior wasn’t what concerned most viewers… Fans zeroed in on something else. Though she blurred out her name at the top of the email, it pretty clearly says Emily Bustamonte Jackson. Jackson just so happens to be Fabolous’ last name.
