What has Brittney Byrd accused Lil Uzi Vert of?
Lil Uzi Vert's ex-girlfriend Brittany Byrd has accused him of striking and pointing a gun her, during an altercation involving rapper Saint Jhn in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, Uzi confronted Saint Jhn at Dialog Café in West Hollywood after learning that the rapper was meeting with Byrd.
Uzi and Jhn then had a physical altercation, when Uzi’s gun fell out of his pants.
Byrd then approached Uzi and he then pointed his gun at her in addition to striking her in the stomach with it.
Byrd has filed a police report, and her manager, Brianna, provided a different version of events to the Shade Room.
According to Brianna, Uzi confronted Byrd, not Jhn, and punched Byrd repeatedly before fleeing.
“Uzi has been stalking Brittany since they broke up,” Brianna told TSR.
“Uzi is toxic and mentally and physically abusive. He has been for years” Brianna added.
Neither Uzi, Byrd nor Jhn has publicly commented on the incident.
