As we learned over the Super Bowl 53 weekend, Bow Wow (real name Shad Moss) and some woman named “Leslie Holden” were both booked on assault & battery charges in Atlanta, Georgia.
The police decided to take both of them to jail as they couldn’t decide who the actual aggressor was in the domestic incident.
We now know that “Leslie Holden” is the real name of Kyomi Leslie, his on-and-off again girlfriend and co-star on Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.
Bow Wow’s rep spoke with The Shade Room to confirm Bow Wow was released bond and set the record straight on Lesile being the aggressor in the alleged fight between the two.
Apparently, Kiyomi was upset that Bow Wow was going to Super Bowl-related events without her, which allegedly caused her to bash the rapper’s face with a lamp.
The rep also told TSR that “Bow Wow suffered multiple injuries including a gash in his neck and side, and bruised ribs. As we previously reported, #Atlanta police confirmed to us that the fight happened early this morning and after officers interviewed the pair, they decided to arrest both of them on battery charges.”
“Both were able to go before a Fulton County Magistrate Judge who granted the defendants $8,000 signature bonds,” a spokesperson finished with.

One person wrote: “Whew!!! He met his match in a woman who ain’t no pushover obviously.. It looks like she got tired of dealing with his inner girl issues.”
A second person shared: “It’s sad and hypocritical reading some of these comments, some of y’all indirectly supporting her actions and others like her. If the situation was reverse you all would had been condemning bow wow just like you did Christ Brown even after he came out with his side of the story. How could we trip when a black dude is victimized by a cop but be so insensitive when it’s being done by a female which ironically ended up getting him locked up? This situation ain’t funny at all.”
This third follower added: “it’s obvious this relationship is toxic once hands have to be involved, that’s a clue to walk away, get it nobody relationship isn’t perfect but domestic violence between the two isn’t needed at all.”
After his release from jail, Bow Wow later attended a Super Bowl Party with Sean “Diddy” Combs and mentor Jermaine Dupri.
