Coolio may just have been angry that his ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ royalty checks have started to dry up, but he was in a pretty bad mood when meeting up with his girlfriend and baby mama Anabella Chatman at their home with another woman in tow. Things didn’t go too well, and Annabella got punched in the face, run over with a car and her son was nearly kidnapped. Talk about a fantastic voyage.
Coolio should know better than to bring another woman home to the house he shares with his girlfriend … and he should also know better than to allegedly punch her in the face.
TMZ has learned the rap legend — aka Artis Ivey Jr. — was popped on April Fools’ Day after he allegedly pushed Anabella Chatman to the ground and punched her in the face. And to add insult to injury … according to the police report, Coolio then hightailed it out of there with their toddler son and the other woman.
Actually … he didn’t get out clean. Anabella says Coolio struck her with his car as he beat his hasty retreat — in fact, cops say she had tire marks on her leg. Pretty compelling evidence.
Coolio tried convincing cops HE was the victim and that she scratched him in a jealous rage, but they weren’t buyin’ what he was sellin’ … so he was taken to the pokey.
What a class act. Obviously Coolio didn’t return calls for comment, but I don’t blame him. What can you even say to that? It’s unclear whether he’s been released from prison or not just yet, but don’t worry, I’m sure we won’t be hearing more from him soon.
