Rapper Fabolous Indicted on Domestic-Violence Charges

Fabolous was indicted Wednesday on four felony domestic-violence charges related to the alleged assault of former reality TV star Emily B, the mother of the rapper’s two kids, according to TMZ and a New Jersey grand-jury indictment. Fabolous—whose real name is John Jackson—was charged with “recklessly [causing] significant bodily injury” to Emily B, who’s listed in the indictment as E.B., on March 7. He was also charged with threatening to “kill and/or shoot E.B. with the purpose to terrorize” several individuals in a March 28 incident. In addition, Jackson was accused of using scissors “with the purpose to use it unlawfully against the person and/or property of another.” Billboard reported that Jackson allegedly punched Emily B in the face repeatedly during the March 7 incident, causing her two front teeth to be knocked out. TMZ also posted a video of the rapper “brandishing a sharp object” in front of Emily B and her father earlier this year. Fabolous faces up to five years behind bars if convicted on the four third-degree charges.
