Rapper Playboi Carti has been arrested in Georgia for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend during an argument over a paternity test, according to a report.

The “Shoota” rapper was accused of grabbing the woman’s neck and pushing her on December 20. She claims he held her neck until she struggled for air, TMZ reports.

Playboi Carti, real name Jordan Carter, was arrested for aggravated assault.

The woman, whose name was not released, told police she thought she was going to die, according to the affidavit obtained by the outlet.

The woman, who has reportedly been with the 26-year-old rapper for over two years and has lived with him at his Georgia mansion since July 2022, told police she was 14 weeks pregnant at the time of the alleged attack.

The argument erupted and quickly became physical when the woman performed a paternity test on their unborn baby.

The woman told police a witness tried to stop the fight and she ran to her car – only to be attacked again by the rapper.

She told police the “Miss The Rage” rapper tried to get her out of the car and put his hand over her mouth while she tried to use the car’s SOS feature to call 911.

When police arrived at the scene, they found injuries to his neck, chest and back, TMZ reports.

Playboi Carti representatives did not respond to Page Six’s calls for comment, but his attorney denied any wrongdoing when reached by TMZ.

“Mr. Carter was falsely accused,” Attorney Brian Steel told the outlet. “Based on my communications with the Fulton County Attorney’s Office, this case is being dismissed without prosecution or litigation.”

The rapper has had several run-ins with the law in recent years, including an April 2020 gun and drug bust in Georgia.

At the time, his Lamborghini was pulled over for an expired badge by the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office’s “Elite COBRA Force,” who found 12 bags of marijuana, three guns, Xanax, codeine and oxycodone, the sheriff’s office said in a statement .

More recently, the rapper made headlines after welcoming a son with Iggy Azalea.

The couple, who dated from 2018 until their split in 2020, split over Carti’s alleged infidelity, according to Azalea.

“I’m raising my son alone and I’m not in a relationship,” the “Fancy” hitmaker clarified at the time.
