Soulja Boy is reportedly under investigation for allegedly kidnapping a woman.
Sources tell TMZ that a woman named Kayla, who was apparently dating Soulja, was at the rapper’s home in Agoura Hills, Calif. over the weekend. On Saturday around 2:30 a.m. they reportedly began arguing and she was told to leave.
Kayla got in her car, put it in reverse, and backed down the driveway before clipping the curb. After witnessing the incident, Soujla’s assistant became “agitated” and the two started fighting.
Soulja reportedly intervened to break up the fight, but Kayla claims he punched and kicked her while she was on the ground before taking her inside the garage and tying her to a chair with an extension cord for six hours.
Once she was released, she went home and contacted police on Saturday morning. She went to the hospital where she was treated for three fractured ribs and a concussion and was discharged late Saturday night.
According to law enforcement, a kidnapping report was filed and there is “an active investigation,” but they would not disclose names of the suspect or alleged victim.
Soulja is on five years probation for a weapons conviction. His manager has not spoken to the rapper, but has denied the kidnapping report, saying that Soulja “always calls me if there’s any problem, and he did not call.”
