Public Enemy member Flavor Flav‘s fiancée was reportedly hospitalized today (April 1) after taking too many painkillers.
Details on the incident surfaced online Monday afternoon.
Flavor Flav’s fiancee — who is starring with the rapper on this season’s “Couples Therapy” — was hospitalized today after ODing on painkillers … TMZ has learned. Sources connected with the show tell TMZ … the fiancee, Liz Trujillo, is the mother of one of Flav’s children. The two agreed to appear on the show together to work on their relationship. A honcho on the show tells us … the OD was accidental and not a suicide attempt. We’re told she was “acting strange” and it became apparent “she took too many pills.” The 39-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she remains although we’re told she’ll be released soon.

Coincidentally, Flav and his fiancée had a domestic dispute last fall.
Flavor Flav’s fiance, Elizabeth Trujillo, tells RumorFix exclusively that the brutal attack she endured on October 17 stemmed from a fight over her fiancé cheating on her with another woman. And now RumorFix has a photo of the alleged mistress that the rapper was kissing just hours before he and Trujillo got into a nasty fight. (RumorFix)
A couple weeks prior, Flav’s legal team said he planned to fight the criminal charges in court.
The 53-year-old former rap, hip-hop and reality TV star, whose legal name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr., didn’t appear in person during a hearing before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Melissa Saragosa. Drayton’s attorney Tony Abbatangelo told The Associated Press his client plans to plead not guilty to allegations that he pushed his girlfriend of eight years to the floor and wielded two knives as he chased and threatened the woman’s 17-year-old son during an argument Wednesday at their home in Las Vegas.

Trujillo dished out details of Flav’s attack around mid-October.
Trujillo, who lives with the entertainer at his home in Las Vegas with their son Karma and her son Gibran, tells RumorFix exclusively that Flav beat her up so badly she can’t walk. She also alleges that the rapper tried to kill her 16-year-old son with a 20 inch butcher knife after Liz accused her fiancé of cheating. “He’s been cheating on me for months. I saw a text on his phone from a woman saying she ‘had a great time’ with him, and he was going to meet her in Vegas. [When I saw the text] I threw his phone and the screen cracked.” (RumorFix)
