West Coast rapper Saweetie and Quavo won’t have to worry about testifying in court over their 2020 elevator fight. New reports claim charges aren’t being filed against either despite leaked footage showing their violent altercation.
Saweetie + Quavo Elevator Fight Won’t
According to reports, neither Saw or Huncho will face criminal charges. The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office declined to move on the potential case.
Law enforcement sources tell us … the case was referred to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office, which declined to file charges. We’re told, based on the evidence — surveillance video of the then-couple in a physical confrontation — there was no likelihood of a conviction for either party. Remember, we’d been told the cops wanted to talk to both Saweetie and Quavo to get more info on what went down before and after the video, but we now know that never happened. (TMZ)
Quavo + Saweetie Speak On Leaked Elevator Footage
Earlier this year, both Quavo and Saweetie came forward to speak out following the leaked 2020 elevator clip of themselves getting physical.
“We had an unfortunate situation almost a year ago that we both learned and moved on from. I haven’t physically abused Saweetie and have real gratitude for what we did share overall.”
In a statement, she said: “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.” (Inside Nova)
LAPD Gets Involved in Saweetie/Quavo Drama
The Los Angeles Police Department was reportedly focused on the biggest headline of the year. Past reports claimed the LAPD ignited an investigation into the publicized Saweetie and Quavo elevator altercation.
Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD detectives have seen the video, obtained by TMZ, showing the now ex-couple fighting over a video game console box, and cops want to meet with both parties, separately, to discuss what went down. Our sources say the situation could be considered an instance of domestic violence, where both parties are in the wrong. Cops want to determine what happened before and after the elevator surveillance footage was captured. (TMZ)
Offset Likes Post Defending Huncho
In March 2021, Migos’ Offset liked an Instagram video from fellow ATL native and rapper Trouble defending Quavo amidst his breakup with the West Coast rapper.
The clip discussed the viral video of the now-estranged pair fighting in an elevator, with Trouble saying Quavo didn’t abuse her or do anything wrong, but rather they had a tug of war.
