NBA Youngboy is facing charges for the beating of girlfriend Jania. The Baton Rouge rapper was shown in surveillance footage beating his girlfriend Jania at a hotel in Waycross, GA.
Youngboy, whose real name is Kentrell Gaulden, and Jania visited a Tallahassee, FL mall just hours after the beating. Youngboy would soon be arrested after police stopped his tour bus while he was on his way to perform at The Moon nightclub.
Youngboy booked into Leon County Jail and later extradited to Georgia’s Ware County Jail.
Youngboy’s charges include two felonies, including kidnapping and aggravated assault (family violence), Billboard reports.
In August 2017, Youngboy was given three years probation for attempted murder charges.
A judge suspended the Baton Rouge rapper’s 10-year prison term and placed him on three years of active supervised probation for his role in a November 2016 drive-by shooting, the New Orleans Advocate reports.
