A source close to Tyga told TMZ that Camaryn allegedly went to his house at 3am on Monday morning, after he told her not to come. When she arrived at his residence, the source claims she began “shouting at the top of her lungs.”
However, Camaryn refuted this claim on her Instagram Stories, posting a screenshot of a conversation with her former boyfriend.
According to her post, the rapper had sent a car to pick her up on Monday morning.
She wrote: “I didn’t show up ‘screaming’ or uninvited. When I tried to leave he physically assaulted [me] and refused to let me leave for hours. I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.”
She also shared a photo of herself with a black eye, alleging: “I’ve been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I’m not hiding it anymore.”
Tyga and Camaryn reportedly started dating early this year but it’s not clear when they broke up.
Tyga has previously had high-profile relationships with Blac Chyna and Kylie Jenner.
