Brooklyn rapper Fabolous has officially been charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of making terroristic threats against longtime girlfriend and the mother of his two sons, Emily Bustamante.
According to court documents obtained by Bossip, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office will be trying the “Throw It in the Bag”’ rapper’s case. If convicted, Fab faces 3-5 years behind bars and up to $15,000 in fines.
Bustamante claims the MC punched her seven times, knocking two of her front teeth loose, which later required medical removal. He also reportedly threatened to “hit her in the head with a bat” and was recently caught on film threatening her and her father.
Despite his domestic drama, Fabolous recently took the stage with fellow Brooklyn native Lil Kim, thanking his fans for their support during this time.
