UPDATE: 3:05 PM EST
TMZ has confirmed that the women involved in Yung Berg’s domestic violence incident is, in fact, castmate Masika Tucker.
The site also claims Berg attacked Masika because his credit card was declined after a night out drinking.
According to sources close to Yung’s GF, Masika Tucker … after a booze-filled night at the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” reunion show in NYC, Berg went to pay his bill, but the card was over the limit.
Yung stormed out, went to his hotel and Masika followed. She told him she paid the bill and schooled him for leaving her … and he reacted by grabbing her by the neck, throwing her on the bed and pulling her out of the room by her hair.
Yung then allegedly continued his assault by choking her out.
Masika is already jumping to Yung’s defense, saying it’s totally out of character for him … and she blames it all on alcohol.
Berg’s camp has yet to address the arrest or incident.
Berg, also known as “Hitmaka,” was arrested in New York City early Wednesday and charged with “obstruction of breathing.”
Berg and the woman were at the Gershwin Hotel when they got in an argument and he allegedly grabbed her by the neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face.
Apparently the neck grab was enough for the breathing obstruction charge.
When cops came, the woman had bruises and complained she was in pain.
The woman involved has yet to be identified, but Berg and L&HH co-star Masika have been spotted together in numerous Instagram posts recently. As early as yesterday, the two cuddled up for a photo, which Berg posted to his account with the caption “Bae.”
Berg is still in police custody. We’ll keep you updated with the latest.
