Fabolous has been charged with four felonies for assaulting longtime girlfriend Emily Bustamante.
Last week, a grand jury issued an indictment for one count of domestic violence with significant bodily injury, two counts of threatening to kill and one count of weapon possession, reports TMZ.
Each charge carries up to five years in prison.
Fabolous reportedly assaulted Bustamante on March 7 after he found out she went on a trip to Los Angeles on Instagram. The 40-year-old was also in the city at the time and on his flight back to New Jersey, he sent a text message to Bustamante saying he wanted to hit her in the head with a baseball bat and kill her, but he "did not want to go out like that," according to court documents obtained by NorthJersey.com.
Following the trip, the rapper allegedly punched his girlfriend in the head seven times and knocked out her two front teeth. Bustamante later called her father and brother to the home the couple shared to retrieve some guns because she feared Fab would use them on her. While Bustamante's family members were at the home, the “Flipmode” rapper confronted them and threatened them after he realized the weapons were missing.
"When he could not locate the guns, the defendant left the house, but not before informing the victim, her father and her brother that he had a bullet for them," stated the court documents.
A video of Fabolous chasing Bustamante and threatening her dad later surfaced. In the video, the rapper appears to be holding a metal item and threatening to shoot Bustamante’s father as a bodyguard attempts to intervene. Fab lunges at Bustamante at one point, causing her to scream and run away. A child can heard hollering in the background. The couple are the parents of two boys, ages 2 and 10.
The couple has not spoken publicly about the incident and remain romantically involved. Fab’s attorney diminished the seriousness of the allegations.
"This is only an argument. There certainly is no crime being committed. If what you see in the video were a crime, we'd have to build more jails,” Alberto Ebanks said in April.
