Saweetie talks about elevator fight footage with Quavo

In an exclusive statement to TMZ, Saweetie breaks her silence about the disturbing elevator video.

Following the release of footage of a physical altercation with his former boyfriend Quavo, the “Best Friend” rapper has reacted to the viral elevator clip. Saweetie confirmed in a statement that the incident occurred a year ago when the couple was still together. They were able to reconcile after the war, but other problems led to their eventual breakup.

“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,” Saweetie said in statement to TMZ.

The former couple can be seen arguing over an orange Call of Duty case in surveillance footage taken at Saweetie’s apartment complex. Before taking her arm and pulling her to the elevator level, Saweetie appears to take the first swing at Quavo. She stays on the floor until the elevator stops, at which point she limps out.

The LAPD is now investigating the incident and if the City Attorney decides to file charges, the investigation could lead to a criminal case.
