Slaughterhouse’s Joe Budden has once again come forward to address widespread domestic violence reports and revealed law enforcement searched his home as a result of his situation.
Budden dished out more details of the headline-generating story and proclaimed his innocence.
“I don’t take this lightly, but I do find it funny seeing as how IM THE CALMEST N*GGA IN THE WORLD !! Smh,” Budden tweeted Friday (August 22) evening.
“Also, if I did half of what’s alleged, a pic of her face would be out, not her leg.. This is simple logic here.”
“Logic typically clears up a lot of sh*t by the way.”
“I’ll have my day in court… f*ck it.”
“I did have a nice convo w @TMZ earlier about journalistic integrity, boy was that funny/stupid. Lol”
“Cops searched my house today cuz shorty told them I had guns here.. He said “wanna tell me why u have a bullet proof vest?”.. Lmao/smh”
“The lesson to be learned here is.. Leave the strippers & bartenders in the strip club… sounds so simple !” (Joe Budden’s Twitter)
Gossip site Media Take Out initially reported on what went down early Thursday (August 21).
Rapper Joe Budden got upset because [JOE’S GIRLFRIEND] dumped him after discovering he was cheating and hooking up with strippers. She then went out (clubbing) with a couple of friends to blow off some steam. One of her friends boyfriend uploaded pictures of [JOE’S GIRLFRIEND] clubbing on Instagram and someone forward the pictures to Joe. (Media Take Out)
Following the report, website TMZ posted up photos from the alleged attack.
We’re told Budden saw pics of his GF with some men and flipped out. Sources connected with the woman tell us … Budden found her at an NYC restaurant, dragged her out to his car and then allegedly choked her and slammed her head into the dash. The sources say he then drove them to his New Jersey home where cops say the beating continued. TMZ obtained photos of the GF’s injuries … they’re pretty graphic. Cops are currently investigating.

Three years ago, video vixen Esther Baxter accused Budden of using physical violence on her.
“AND!??? NEVER denied being pregnant TWICE!! but that was months ago…you KNOW what happened to our daughter don’t you!!?? @JoeBudden,” Baxter tweeted May 3, 2011.
“Oh I have pics to…but then they would prove you’re a murder & a wife beater!! wouldn’t they!??? @JoeBudden lets ask the courts shall we!??”
“Documented proof speaks volumes!!! You can put out pics of me naked!! But I have pics of abuse and death!!! Try me!! @JoeBudden”
“Let’s see how much your fans love and ride with you then!!! @JoeBudden” (Esther Baxter’s Twitter)
A year prior, Joe’s ex-wifey Tahiry Jose said he hurt her during their long relationship together.
“I just want you guys to know this is very, very difficult to address, discuss, even talk about and sometimes think about it,” Tahiry said in a statement. “I’ve avoided to for months — the fact that he’s not telling the truth after rapping about it to me is just completely disgusting. I’ll just let you guys know that if he had never publicly discussed our break-up, I wouldn’t have neither. Let alone the fact he put his hands on me — it’s his choice to discuss it however he wants it, even if it’s to the world, he’s free to handle it the way he wants to handle it…The day I heard his [‘Downfall’] song was the day I was having my tattoo party which is why I chose to address it the way I did…I left and will never go back because he put his hands on me…Nobody should ever allow or accept anybody to put their hands on them. So I wish it all would end…” (This Is 50)
