Rapper Quavo is seen dragging ex-girlfriend Saweetie to the ground after she takes a swing at him in shocking new footage caught on an elevator surveillance camera before their breakup.
Things got physical between the Migos talent, 29, and the My Type hitmaker, 27, during a 2020 altercation at a North Hollywood apartment complex where she was living, according to TMZ.
The video begins with Saweetie – birth name Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper – swinging at Quavo.
Before he dodges her blows the Bad And Boujee rapper drops an orange case, which she grabs before he charges at her and pulls her into the elevator.

The pair scramble over an orange hardware box and Quavo – full name Quavious Keyate Marshall – yanks on Saweetie’s arm, pulling her to the ground.
He gets up while the 5foot7 songstress appears to remain on the floor of the elevator, perhaps injured.
Quavo – who is 6foot2 – stands by, readjusting his bag while refusing to offer the still grounded Saweetie a hand.
The elevator door opens on another floor, revealing the legs of someone waiting who then decides not to get inside.

Quavo gathers his backpack and the box as the doors close and they go up another floor, where he gets off as she tries to pull herself off the ground via a nearby handrail.
He then looks back at the rapper and sets down the orange box to block the elevator door from closing as he appears to talk to Saweetie, who after several more moments finally steadies herself and limps off, clearly shaken.
Sources on both sides say that the altercation happened last year, months before their breakup was revealed earlier this month.
Saweetie confirmed the pair had split on March 19th via social media, suggesting the Motorsport rapper cheated as she told fans she’s ‘endured too much betrayal.’

Baggage: Saweetie had previously suggested cheating was the reason for their split
‘I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character.’ The Icy Girl hitmaker wrote.
‘Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.’
‘I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom,’ she went on in another post.
‘Excited for this new chapter of elevation [Folded hands.]’

The duo sparked breakup rumors when they unfollowed each other on Instagram.

Unfollowed: The couple are no longer following one another on Instagram
During an interview with Justin LaBoy on the Respectfully Justin YouTube channel, Saweetie was asked about the most disrespectful thing a man had done to her.
She responded: ‘He break your heart… it’s the last straw…’ but would not be drawn on who the man was.
‘I think it’s lying. It’s the principle, I don’t like liars.’ she added.
The pair’s romance began on Instagram in 2018 when he DM-ed her a snowflake emoji referencing her 2017 hit, ICY GRL.
I told her, “You an icy girl, you need a glacier boy,”‘ Quavo (born Quavious Marshall) said in the August edition of GQ.
Saweetie replied: ‘And I sent him the stir-fry [emoji] back’ referencing Migos’ 2017 hit song.
