Saweetie Breaks Her Silence About That Elevator Fight With Quavo, LAPD Launches Investigation For Possible Domestic Violence

That now viral elevator fight between former couple Saweetie & Quavo has the internet in a tizzy, and the “Back To The Streets” rapper is breaking her silence about it for the first time.  The latest on what she and LAPD are saying, inside.

Whew. The Saweetie and Quavo breakup went from messy to down right problematic, and we’re now seeing just how toxic their 2.5 years of coupledom has been.

Last week, Saweetie took to Twitter to confirm her single status while high key calling Quavo a cheater.  Quavo’s toxic response was followed by the “Take Care” heard around the world.  But just when we thought that was the end of it – even though that end came quite quickly after what seemed like the picture perfect relationship – it was FAR from the end of it.

Earlier this week, surveillance video from inside an apartment complex elevator – which is reportedly Saweetie’s apartment complex – leaked.  It’s unclear what happened before the elevator doors opened, but we first see Saweetie take a swipe at Quavo and grab the Call of Duty console box he had in his hands. Then Quavo grabs back at her, yanks her into the elevator with him as she is flung into the back wall of the elevator.  She then drops to the floor seemingly in distress.  Quavo doesn’t aid her, but simply looks at her and stays on the elevator after it arrives on another floor.  Others were waiting to get on the elevator, and Saweetie eventually limps off the elevator with Quavo.

It’s unclear what led to this altercation and what happened after, but we do know they stayed together afterwards as the video was from 2020.

Neither Saweetie nor Quavo spoke on the video…until today. “Tap In” rapper Saweetie told TMZ:

“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.”

We assume those “other hurdles” were the cheating situations Saweetie referenced last week.  Back in 2019 there were rumors of cheateration, but Twitter quickly called the alleged side chick a fake.

It may have been LAPD launching an investigation today that made Saweetie suddenly speak out. TMZ revealed earlier that they’re possibly considering this as a domestic violence situation – on both sides:

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.

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.


This is so much. 

Saweetie’s cousin Gabrielle Union posted up this Tweet that could be meant for anyone, but the timing is certainly interesting:

Quavo’s sister posted some shade about Saweetie right after the breakup, and Saweetie’s aunt/bestie Whitney Harp got involved as well:




By the way, Quavo did not repossess that custom Bentley he copped Saweetie for Christmas despite rampant rumors that he did.

Family feuds and elevator feuds…..we wish everybody the best.
