yung berg

*TMZ is reporting that Yung Berg’s arrest for alleged domestic violence was sparked when his credit card was declined.

Also, since news broke this morning, TMZ is reporting that the girlfriend in question is indeed Masika Tucker. According to sources close to Tucker, after a booze-filled night at the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” reunion show in New York, Berg went to pay his bill, but the card was over the limit…

Yung stormed out, went to his hotel and Masika followed. She told him she paid the bill and schooled him for leaving her … and he reacted by grabbing her by the neck, throwing her on the bed and pulling her out of the room by her hair.

Yung then allegedly continued his assault by choking her out.

Masika is already jumping to Yung’s defense, saying it’s totally out of character for him … and she blames it all on alcohol.
