In the 30-second clip, the rapper tells Bustamante’s dad he has a bullet with his “name on it” after he calls the rapper a coward.

Bossip, citing a complaint it obtained, reported that Emily B said Fabolous punched her in the head seven times and caused “severe damage to her two front teeth,” which had to be medically removed.

The complaint also said the rapper texted Emily B, saying “he would hit her in the head with a baseball bat.”

XXL reported that after Emily B got that text and another one in which he allegedly said he wanted to kill her, she sent her father and brother to the couple’s Englewood, New Jersey, home to get two handguns. Fabolous showed up threatened Emily B and her father, which appeared to be recorded on video.
