AceShowbiz - Producer Hitmaka has slammed media reports he pistol-whipped a woman believed to be his girlfriend - insisting the incident that occurred in his home over the weekend (14-15Mar20) was in fact a home invasion.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the former "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star, formerly known as rapper Yung Berg, claimed the woman in question, Talia Tilley, was never his girlfriend, and said she attempted to have him robbed during the incident.
The star also posted surveillance footage of what appears to be intruders on his property to back up his claims, writing: "I could've been murdered inside my home on Saturday & I would like to take this time & thank all of my family, friends, & colleagues who have reached out regarding the matter sending love and positive energy."
"This footage is very alarming to all my fellow people in music & living in los angles area pls be safe and monitor who you allow in your home," he added.
"I made a crucial mistake which could’ve costed my life THIS WOMAN WAS NOT MY GF EVER,” Hitmaka, real name Christian Ward, continued. "I won't dive further into this & will let my lawyers move forward accordingly. Pls stay safe amidst these tragic times not only for myself but the entire world."
The "Business" star also posted a statement from his attorney, claiming that although Tilley spent the night with him, she began a "calculated, unprovoked attack on Mr. Ward, slapping and punching him repeatedly," confirming, "Mr. Ward defended himself against this attack."
His home security system was reportedly triggered by three men attempting to break into his back door and, after all the commotion, he discovered that Tilley had been in contact with an unknown person and shared his address with the stranger.
