Details have now been uncovered surrounding the arrest of rapper and reality TV star Bow Wow and his girlfriend Kiyomi Leslie during Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta.

Both were charged with misdemeanor battery and leveled with $8K bonds. Bow Wow was reportedly charged again with battery with substantial physical harm.

According to Leslie’s side of the story, the couple scrapped early Saturday morning due to Bow Wow’s insane jealousy and possessiveness. According to WSB-TV reporter Michael Seiden, the man who allegedly made Bow Wow jealous when Leslie was reportedly NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal.

Seiden said Bow Wow mentioned Shaq’s name in the police report.

In police reports also obtained by TMZ, Leslie says the fracas began when they returned home from an Atlanta Club at 4 a.m. Saturday. Leslie claims that Bow Wow got so heated after seeing her supposedly talking intimately with this other man, that he hit her in the head, pulled her by the hair, dragged her from her bedroom and told her to get “the hell out.”

Bow Wow did not try to deny that he was perturbed about Leslie talking to the other guy in his report. In his side of the story, the 31-year-old Roll Bounce star told the Atlanta Police Department that Leslie had “disrespected him,” as she was draped “all over another man’s body.”

Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, also told the APD that she called him a “b—- a– n—–” when he raised objections about her behavior in the club. While he did not try to deny that he was jealous, Bow Wow said he merely told Leslie to leave their home and placed her bags by the door nonviolently.

He said Leslie snapped and “grabbed a nightstand lamp and threw it at him.” In the mug shot, you can clearly see that Bow Wow sustained minor facial injuries. However, because police could not determine who was the aggressor in the fight, both were hauled off to jail.
