Joe Budden is currently wanted by NYPD for allegedly assaulting and robbing his ex-girlriend. A Tweet was posted on the NYPD News Page issuing a man hunt for the rapper: Police released a photo of Joe Budden, 33 and started their search to find the rapper who is being connected to the attack earlier this week.
According to NYDailyNews, the attack was so violent it is being compared to Chris Brown's 2009 attack on then girlfriend Rihanna:
Budden allegedly drove up to a restaurant near Nagle Ave. and Dyckman St. at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, grabbed his ex and forced her into his car. As the two argued, Budden stole her cell phone and twisted her arm, officials said. He then took her to his New Jersey home, where the attack allegedly continued. His ex ultimately escaped and called police. Friends of the victim told mediatakeout.com that Budden had slammed his ex-girlfriend’s head into the dashboard. The BEATDOWN has been compared to Chris Brown's savage attack on megastar Rihanna in 2009.
Apparently this didn't sit too well with Joe Budden he popped off on Twitter, gave the NYPD his location to find him, and threatened to sue the NYPD
