UPDATED March 17, 5:11 p.m. ET: The Blast reports Hitmaka was actually a victim of a "planned and coordinated" home invasion robbery.
Hitmaka's attorney, Shepard Kopp, shared this statement with The Blast:
On Saturday morning, March 14, 2020, Christian "Hitmaka" Ward was the victim of a planned and coordinated home invasion robbery and assault.
Talia Tilley came to Mr. Ward's house at around 3:40 am. Although she had been to Mr. Ward's house before and was familiar with the layout of the house, she is not now and never has been his girlfriend, and has been falsely reported in some media stories.
Even though it was late and approximately 50 degrees outside, Ms. Tilley strangely suggested that they get in the hot tub. Mr. Ward declined her request. After some physical intimacy. Ms. Tilley made a calculated, unprovoked attack on Mr. Ward, slapping and punching him repeatedly. Mr. Ward defended himself against the attack.
In the middle of the assault by Ms. Tilley, the security alarm for the back door of Mr. Ward's house went off. The ADT security company has records of the alarm, and the home security company Ring captured video footage of two armed assailants jumping the fence into Mr. Ward's backyard, while a third man acted as a lookout. The robbers were unable to get into the house because the back door was secured by a heavy chain with a lock. Right after this alarm sounded, Mr. Ward saw one of the robbers running back from the back door towards the fence. He then heard the robbers trying unsuccessfully to kick open his front door.
Following these startling events, Mr. Ward was able to view Ms. Tilley's phone, and saw that she had been in communication with and was sharing her location with an unknown person. This person was calling and texting her before, during, and after this attempted home invasion robbery.

Yung Berg, the ex-star of Love & Hip Hop who also goes by Hitmaka, has been accused of pistol-whipping his girlfriend this past weekend. As a result of this alleged assault, she suffered a broken nose and was hospitalized. The case is now being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
Police reports of the incident were obtained by The Blast. That report states that Christian Ward (Hitmaka's real name) and his girlfriend "became involved in a verbal dispute." During this dispute Ward is accused of pistol-whipping his partner multiple times which resulted in "verifiable injuries."
This is said to have happened at a private residence in L.A. at roughly 5:00 a.m. this past Saturday. The report was deemed "intimate partner violence."
The alleged victim was hospitalized later in the day and was given treatment at L.A.'s Cedars Sinai Hospital. There she was diagnosed with a "closed head injury, closed fracture of nasal bone, and facial lacerations.”
An emergency protective order has been issued that prevents Hitmaka from coming within 100 yards of the injured party. He's also not allowed to contact her in any way. That order will expire by Friday, March 20, and if she wants it to extend longer she'll need to file a restraining order in L.A. court.
