Rapper Bow Wow was badly beat up last weekend, by his girlfriend Kiyomi. Now new surveillance footage suggests that Kiyomi beat up the actor/rapper in self defense.

Bow Wow, real name Shad Moss, and Kiyomi Leslie were both arrested and charged with battery following a physical altercation that occurred over Super Bowl weekend in Atlanta. 

The police arrested both Bow Wow and Kiyomi, because they could not determine who had initiated the violence. 

As soon as the arrest became public, Shad Moss' camp blamed Kiyomi for "attacking" Bow Wow. But Kiyomi maintained that it was Bow Wow that started the whole thing because he was jealous "over another man." 

Now new surveillance video - which shows Bow Wow aggressively screaming at Kiyomi - suggests that her version of the incident is correct.

Here is the surveillance video:

According to the legal documents, the incident went down on Friday at “Shaq’s Fun House,” a party hosted by the ball player where both Bow Wow and Kiyomi were in attendance. “Mr. Moss [Bow Wow] stated that Ms. Holden [Leslie] was all over another man’s body in the party. 

A man Bow Wow referred to as Shaquille,” the police report read. “Mr. Moss stated that he felt very disrespected by her behavior, that the argument became heated, that Ms. Holden started yelling loudly and calling him “bitch-ass n—–. 

A new TMZ report says that:

Bow Wow was enraged at his girlfriend before their violent fight, forcefully snatching something from her, cornering her and getting all up in her grill ... according to a surveillance video obtained by TMZ.

The video taken from their apartment complex shows Bow Wow and Kiyomi Leslie Holden taking an elevator up to their unit after a night of partying. The rapper looks PISSED at Kiyomi Leslie, because he rips something from her hand, and appears to berate her.
