YK Osiris was arrested and booked on charges of aggravated assault by strangulation in Atlanta on Monday (November 4). The Def Jam singer was apprehended after being accused of choking and biting the face of his girlfriend at his 21st birthday party on September 7.
According to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Osiris’ girlfriend confronted him after seeing a picture of another woman wearing nothing but a towel in his phone. The outspoken artist allegedly responded by saying, “I am going to slap the shit out of you” and chasing her up some stairs into a bathroom.
Inside the restroom, Osiris’ girlfriend said he choked and bit her. She alleged a mark left under her left eye was where she’d been bitten.
Osiris, whose legal name is Osiris Williams, was denied bond following his arrest. He remains locked up in Fulton County Jail while waiting on a preliminary hearing in his case, which is scheduled to take place later this month.
Last month, Osiris released his debut album The Golden Child via Def Jam. Since then, he has instigated conversation by claiming to be the new “King of R&B,” dissing artists such as Jacquees and Bryson Tiller in the process.
