Lil Uzi Vert has taken a plea deal to avoid time behind bars in an assault case involving his ex-girlfriend and fellow rapper SAINt JHN.
According to TMZ, Uzi was sentenced to three years of probation. He was also sentenced to 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.
His ex-girlfriend Brittany Byrd claimed that Uzi assaulted her in West Hollywood by putting a gun to her stomach and hitting her. Brittany was alleging having a business meeting with SAINt JHN and one other person when Uzi jumped out of an Escalade and confronted everyone at the table. He also got into an altercation with SAINt JHN who he reportedly thought was dating his ex, Brittany. He tried to punch the rapper but he missed and fell, and his gun fell to the ground. When Brittany stood up from the table Uzi allegedly hit her and pushed the gun into her stomach.
