Swae Lee's ex-girlfriend was reportedly arrested for striking him during a heated argument last month.
According to TMZ, the Rae Sremmurd rapper and his ex, Marliesia Ortiz, had an argument at Swae's home outside Los Angeles in early August, and she allegedly began throwing objects at him. Law enforcement sources claim Marliesia then struck Swae and delivered a headbutt before his security kicked her out. That's when she is said to have called 911, "claiming Swae sexually assaulted her, but when cops arrived she changed her story."
Marliesia reportedly "admitted to starting the altercation by breaking items in his house and hitting him, but claimed the rapper also strangled her." However, TMZ reports that neither Swae or Marliesia had any visible marks on them, but based on the evidence cops decided to arrest her. A rep for Swae Lee added that cops determined Marliesia falsified her accusations, which is why she was arrested. While charges have yet to be filed, the Los Angeles City Attorney has decided to hold a City Attorney hearing with both parties over the incident.
Following TMZ's report, Swae appeared to sound off on the drama on Twitter. "They’ll make up anything for a story about I’m truely baffled 😂☠️," he wrote early Monday morning (September 9). Meanwhile, Marliesia has seemingly deleted her Instagram account.
As fans know, Marliesia and Swae split in March. She told TMZ she was done with him and accused him of cheating and being verbally abusive. "He thinks he's a need and not a want and he needs to realize he's a want," Marliesia told the outlet at the time. "I'm really over it because I want him to realize there's nobody else in this world that's as down as me."
