All in the Third Degree
Following the blow out dispute between Fabolous and Emily B comes some serious charges against the “Can’t Let You Go” rapper. According to new court documents obtained by BOSSIP, Fab and his legal team must go up against one count of aggravated assault in the third degree alongside one count of making terroristic threats in the third degree.
To prosecute the rapper — who earned his initial charges after the cops were called to his and former Love & Hip Hop star Emily B’s home — authorities from the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office have stepped up. A spokesperson for the office come forward Monday (April 2), revealing that the original charges against Fab still stand.
The New York native is due back in court before the end of April, and if he’s convicted, he runs the risk of being in prison for three to five years. He’ll also be looking at 15k charge for the aggravated assault charge.
The “Flipmode” rapper, who reportedly surrendered to police willingly, was first cited for the alleged altercation and given a notice for a court appearance (rather than being sent to jail) last Wednesday night (March 28). Afterwards, Fab’s lawyer Alberto Ebanks spoke to certain media outlets on behalf of the Brooklyn-born artist. He told Billboard, “I’ve known Fab close to 20 years and believe he is incapable of engaging in the alleged conduct.”
According to more recent updates on the situation, Ebanks’ belief was wrong. Fabolous reportedly punched Emily, who has dated Fab on-and-off for the past 15 years, in the face seven times. It is also said that Fab caused “severe damage to [Emily’s] two front teeth,” which she subsequently lost.
More than that, Fab reportedly threatened her dad and brother.
According to Emily’s affidavit of probable cause, she “called her father to remove two handguns from the residence due to her fear that they may be used against her.” The affidavit then states that when Fab couldn’t find the handguns in their Englewood home, “the defendant left the house, but not before informing the victim, her father and her brother that he had a bullet for them.”
This alleged series of events reportedly sparked after Fab learned that Emily was in Los Angeles at the same time as him via social media. According to the affidavit, Fab was on a business trip in LA when he “become enraged” after seeing photos of Emily in LA as well on Instagram.
The paperwork goes on to claim that Fab texted Emily during his flight back home, telling her that he wanted to hit her in the head with a baseball bat before saying he would kill her but he “did not want to go out like that.” This event, which occurred March 7, reportedly led Emily to have her father remove the guns from her home.
While Ebanks released a statement, Fabolous himself did nothing more than caption a string of Instagram photos. Around 10 PM on the night of the dispute, the rapper shared pictures from a performance with Lil Kim, writing, “Your strongest enemy’s the one who knows your weak spot.”
Emily B, on the other hand, hadn’t posted anything on social media in a few days as of yesterday (March 29). She’s since made her profiles private.
