AceShowbiz - Rapper Lil Reese is facing a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery following an alleged bust-up with his girlfriend.
The star stands accused of attacking his partner at his Chicago, Illinois home on the night of May 29 after a heated argument turned physical, with the woman telling police Reese pulled her hair and punched her in the face.
Officers responding to calls about the incident noted an injury to her lower lip, and took Reese into custody.
He was subsequently released on $10,000 (£7,000) bond, but a representative for the rapper claims Reese is innocent.
In a statement issued to TMZ, the spokesperson wrote, "That story is false, nobody was hit... the court narative is based off someone saying Lil Reese was physical, but he was not [sic]."
The news of his arrest only emerged on Saturday, June 5, weeks after the artist was hospitalized with an eye wound following a shooting in Chicago on the morning of May 15. He was one of three people shot in the incident, which is currently under investigation by authorities. The rapper suffered from serious gunshot wound but was reported to be in a stable condition.
A graphic video featuring him at the scene later hit the web. In the video, Reese was seen struggling as he was seen bleeding heavily from his mouth and eyes. The "GetBackMood" rapper was lying on the ground as he was barely conscious. Chicago Police Department officials claimed he sustained an eye wound.
