Rapper-turned-actor Jamal "Gravy" Woolard is reportedly due in court later this month for an alleged assault on his wife.

The alleged incident took place last fall.

Court records show Jamal Woolard was arrested and charged back on September 14 with misdemeanor assault, menacing, and harassment after an alleged altercation with his wife, Trina Younger. Woolard is due to appear in court on the charges January 29. (TMZ)

In other reports reveal Woolard's mother-in-law disputed the reports.

Paperwork shows Woolard admitted responsibility, allegedly telling cops, "She wouldn't stop pushing me, so I snuffed her." The rapper's mother-in-law, who is staying with the couple during the film's opening weeks, said she was unaware of any domestic-violence incident. "I know he wouldn't hit her," said Roslyn Younger. "He's not like that. Most definitely, they have a good relationship. That's impossible. I think it's made up. He's a loving husband and I never heard of anything like that before in my life." (New York Post)

The news comes a day after Woolard signed a deal with It Girl Pulic Relations.

"I want to be the guy that is a chameleon with performances, known for a diverse body of work and hopefully fortunate to be working in this business for a long time," Woolard said in a statement. (Hip Hop Press Release)
