It doesn't look good
Rapper Lud Foe has been arrested on charges of domestic battery. Authorities in Joliet, Illinois claim that the man behind the No Hooks series of mixtapes became violent in an argument with his pregnant girlfriend and her mother.
The Herald-News reports that police were called to Foe’s Plainfield home due to a domestic disturbance. The paper says that Foe’s girlfriend told police Foe slapped her repeatedly and shoved her off the bed. When her mother attempted to intervene, the pregnant woman claims that Foe slapped and pushed her as well.
Foe’s girlfriend told authorities that she tried to contact the police, but the rapper pulled the phone cord from the wall. Her mother hit the panic button in their home, causing police to respond. They arrested Foe and charged him with aggravated domestic battery, interfering with the report of domestic violence, and domestic battery.
He is set to appear in court on Friday afternoon.
Lud Foe isn’t the only drill rapper to find themselves on the wrong side of the law this year. Katie Got Bandz was arrested for identity theft, but appeared to skate by the charges, tweeting out “B*tch, I’m free!” to her fans shortly after the news broke of the charges.
It’s also not the first high-profile case of domestic abuse that we’ve encountered this year. Reality star Just Brittany accused her ex Z-Ro of beating her and trapping her in the bathroom of their home.
However, after many months of back-and-forth, a jury failed to indict Z-Ro. They couldn’t make the audio recording that Brittany submitted as evidence of the incident jibe with her own telling of events.
“He spazzed out,” she told TMZ before the case was ultimately dismissed. “He put his hands on me.”
“He had no soul in his eyes,” she added
The gossip website went on to report that Z-Ro believed from the beginning that Brittany filed the charges as a publicity stunt.
“Z-Ro is telling friends it’s not a coincidence Brittany reported the alleged assault on Monday — 3 months later — because the new reality show she’s on, ‘Signed,’ premiered Wednesday,” the outlet wrote. “The insinuation — she’s just trying to get her name in headlines. To that point, our Z-Ro sources point out Brittany bragged she was trending on social media … the day after his arrest.”
Brittany countered that narrative on the talk show Raq Rants.
“I’m mad that my debut of my show that I’ve waited so long for is overshadowed by domestic abuse,” she said. “I’m f*cking pissed off…This was my moment.”
Ultimately, the case was tossed and Z-Ro is a free man.
Outside of Houston, Karreuche Tran revealed that Chris Brown might not be as reformed as he’d like us to believe. She revealed to Wendy Williams that she had to get a restraining order on the singer after he became violent. Tran said that she feared for her safety, especially after she tried to move on from the singer.
“It came to a point where I felt like I needed to protect my safety,” she told Williams, who immediately tried to joke about Brown throwing rocks at Tran’s window.
“That did happen before,” she said, “but we’re not going to go into detail about that.”
In short, there are plenty of folks out there who have put their hands on their partners after releasing great music. It’s up to listeners to decide whether they can tolerate it.
