Moesha star Marcus T. Paulk was arrested after allegedly kicking his girlfriend in the stomach and putting her in the hospital.
The 26-year-old turned himself in at a Los Angeles jail Thursday evening and was placed under arrest, according to TMZ.
The alleged victim, singer Andi Roxx, said the fight started at Confidential, a nightclub in Beverly Hills. Roxx said she and Paulk got into an argument because she wasn’t paying enough attention to him. When they got home, she said Paulk punched her in the chin. Roxx fought back and busted open Paulk’s lip. She said he then punched her in the stomach and told her to get her stuff and leave. Roxx also said that Paulk kicked her in the stomach.
Roxx said she went to the hospital with internal injuries. Police responded to the hospital shortly afterward, and Roxx told them what happened between her and Paulk. Police contacted Paulk, and he and his attorney arranged for him to turn himself in.
