According to TMZ, Coolio was arrested on April 1 for abuse. He allegedly punched girlfriend Anabella Chatman in the face after pushing her to the ground. Chatman, who shares a son with the Los Angeles native, claims to have found Coolio in their house with another woman.
As if he hadn’t already done enough damage, the 49-year-old fled the scene with their son and his side chick in tow — but not before delivering another blow to his child’s mother.
Police say that Coolio — born Artis Ivey Jr. — hit Chatman with his car leaving tire marks on her leg.
With all that evidence against him, Coolio told authorities that he was actually the victim, accusing Chatman of flying into a jealous rage and scratching him in the face. Cops weren’t interested in his version of events and hauled him off to jail.
This isn’t the first time that Coolio has been behind bars. He was arrested in Las Vegas last year, and put in the same facility as his son Artis.
Coolio hasn’t yet commented on his latest arrest
Oh for goodness sake Coolio. You get caught cheating and then you hit the woman you’re supposed to be actually ‘with’ ? How is that going to get you out the dog house?! What then gives you the right to kidnap your son and try to start again with this other chick? I’m sure the kid would have something to say about that? And then hit your babymother on the way to the door? C’mon now! That’s disgusting behaviour. Is it some sort of sick game to you? Do you get a kick out of it? If you don’t want to be with someone surely it’s easier to break up and start afresh with someone new? Rather than go through the hassle of cheating and sneaking around?
Then you had the audacity to sink even lower and pretend to be the victim? Of course she’s going to be mad if she walks in on you and another woman! But a scratch compared to a a beating? No. what sort of man do you think you are?
I’m writing this as if Coolio’s going to sit down and read this hahaha.
Domestic violence is not something I agree with. In fact, I studied it in sociology and I might write an informative blog about it later…
