Police noticed the bump on the woman’s head and arrested Trippie. He was taken to Fulton County Jail and charged with one count of aggravated assault and one count of battery causing substantial physical harm. The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office also added an additional count of being a fugitive from justice.
While getting out of jail would be a cause for celebration, Trippie’s day was met with bad news following the death of his friend and collaborator, XXXTentacion. Following the news of X’s death, Trippie shared old photos and videos of the two on Instagram, writing, “Some birthday I’m having.”
After collaborating on the 2017 song “Fuck Love,” Trippie and XXXTentacion’s relationship had its ups and downs. The two appeared to squash their beef in March after X gave a shout out to Trippie during a benefit concert in Florida.
The “Dark Knight Dummo” rapper showed the love back, writing on Instagram, “I love you too bro thanks for this it takes a real man to speak on shit and really apologize for their actions u a smart ass guy just remember I’m always in your corner and I also apologize for anything I’ve said about you I don’t hate u zzz @xxxtentacion hml.”
