New details, including video footage, have emerged in the alleged domestic violence incident involving Fabolous and his on and off again girlfriend Emily Bustamante.
In the video obtained by TMZ, an enraged Fabolous is seen screaming at Bustamante and her father. As Fab’s security holds him back, he is heard asking Bustamante why her father is at their New Jersey residence, adding that the older gentleman isn’t allowed back on the property.
A visibly frightened Bustamante responds that “he is her father,” while the man shouts “that’s my mother***** daughter” and then calls the Brooklyn rapper a coward.
Fabolous, whose real name is John Jackson, continues to spew threats at Bustamante’s father, including that he has a “bullet with [his] name on it.” Fab then lunges at Bustamante when he realizes she is trying to record the incident. In the midst of all the drama, a baby can be heard crying in the background.
The argument took place on Wednesday, the same day Fabolous turned himself into New Jersey authorities. He was booked for aggravated assault and making terroristic threats.
Fabolous’ charges stem dates back to a March 7 incident involving an unidentified woman (believed to he Bustamante).
According to court documents obtained by NorthJersey.com, Fab became incensed while on a business trip in Los Angeles after learning via Instagram that Bustamante was also in the California city.
Bustamante claims that she received a text from the rapper on the flight back from L.A. that stated he wanted to bash her head in with a baseball bat and that he wanted to kill her but he “did not want to go out like that.”
Bustamante alleges Fab punched her seven times in the face “causing severe damage to her two front teeth,” which she ultimately lost. Following the alleged fight, she contacted her father and brother and asked them to “remove two handguns from the residence due to her fear that they may be used against her.”
Once Fab arrived at the Englewood residence, he confronted the three. He allegedly entered the home to retrieve the firearms, which was nowhere to be found.
Fabolous and Bustamante have been together for more than 10 years, and have two sons together.
Fabolous’ attorney Alberto Ebanks told TMZ, “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.”
Fabolous is set to appear in court in the coming weeks.
