Notorious star Jamal Woolard is due in court Jan. 29 for a Sept. 14 assault against his wife, Trina Younger. The one-time rapper formerly known as “Gravy,” was charged with misdemeanor assault, menacing and harassment stemming from the altercation.
According The New York Post, Jamal, who plays hip hop legend The Notorious B.I.G. in the current biopic, slapped Trina in their East New York home during an early-morning argument because he came home late.
According to the police report, Trina dared her husband of seven months to hit her: “She wouldn’t stop pushing me, so I snuffed her.”
“I know he wouldn’t hit her,” says Roslyn Younger, the actor’s mother-in-law. “He’s not like that. Most definitely, they have a good relationship. That’s impossible. I think it’s made up. He’s a loving husband, and I never heard of anything like that before in my life.”
Woolard was famously shot in the bu** in front of New York’s Hot 97 radio station several years ago.
