Ealier this week, Berg was arrested at a New York City hotel after he allegedly assaulted Tucker about claims that his credit card was declined during a night out on the town. “He hit me and dragged me by my hair. He pinned me to the wall and grabbed me by my throat,” Tucker told police.
Now, VH1 has come forward, promising to take action following the horrific incident…
“Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood,” effective immediately,” reports VH1.com.
On Nov. 5, Berg was originally charged with criminal obstruction of breathing, which has since been dropped. He faces three new charges, three assaults and one harassment in connection with the assault on his fellow cast member.
Bravo to VH1 for taking immediate action. We hope that Berg seeks out help for whatever bottom line issue has him in these streets laying hands on people. – Ruu Hawkins/@ruubabie
