Saweetie has released a statement which addressed the viral video of them fighting in an elevator.
The footage, which was captured in 2020, shows the former couple in a physical altercation in an elevator. The video shows Saweetie take a swing at Quavo as she attempted to remove a gaming console from the elevator.
The Migos rapper then attempted to retrieve the case by grabbing her arms and pushing her back in the elevator, causing Saweetie to fall to the floor. Quavo then stood in front of the elevator door in an effort to stop her from leaving. The elevator door opened seconds later, and Quavo exited before placing the case in the doorway. Saweetie eventually stood up and exited slowly behind her now-ex-boyfriend.
Following the viral video, Saweetie’s statement read: “This unfortunate incident happened a year ago, while we have reconciled since then and moved past this particular disagreement, there were simply too many other hurdles to overcome in our relationship and we have both since moved on,
“I kindly ask that everyone respect my privacy during this time.”
The Los Angeles Police Department is reportedly investigating the video, which was taken at an apartment complex where Saweetie was renting a unit. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that officers are seeking to speak with both parties to determine what exactly happened in the moments leading up to the physical altercation.
