Report: Lil Uzi Vert sentenced to three years probation for assaulting ex-girlfriend and SAINt JHN

Lil Uzi Vert has reportedly accepted a plea bargain with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office after being charged with assault in an incident involving his ex-girlfriend and rapper SAINt JHN.

TMZ reports that the Philly MC was sentenced to three years of probation, one year in treatment for mental health and substance abuse, 52 weeks in domestic violence counseling, restitution, and 10 years under a criminal protective order. In July 2021, Uzi was charged with three felonies — assault with a firearm, criminal threats and domestic violence — in addition to a misdemeanor charge for carrying a loaded weapon.

His former girlfriend, Brittany Byrd, filed a police report alleging that the “Futsal Shuffle 2020” rapper struck her and threatened her with a gun while she was at the Dialog Cafe in West Hollywood for a business meeting with SAINt JHN. She claims that Uzi jumped out of his Escalade and threw a punch that missed JHN, as his gun fell on the ground. Byrd added that Vert allegedly pushed the gun against her stomach and hit her.
