Police in New Jersey have issued an arrest warrant for rapper Fetty Wap after they say he threatened to “f**k up” the mother of his child. The incident (above) was recorded by Wap’s babymama, Lezhae Zeona. She’s shown in the video waving a huge knife at Wap while he yells at her from the street.

Here’s what you need to know about the mother of Wap’s child:
1. Wap Is Accused of Making Terroristic Threats to Zeona
On Halloween night, Wap tweeted “End of the day I ain’t see my daughter In a month so yea I was upset , S**t happens when ppl wanna be famous.” Media Takeout reports that Wap is facing a charge of making terroristic threats from the Passaic Police Department. The site says that the warrant is dated November 2 and adds that Wap’s rage stemmed from the above interview that Zeona gave on October 29.
In July 2015, TMZ reported that Wap was wanted for questioning in Paramus, New Jersey, after a man was assaulted inside a convenience store.
2. She’s a Native of Compton
According to her Facebook page, Zeona is a native of Compton, California. She now lives in Passaic, New Jersey. On his official bio, Wap says he’s from nearby Paterson, New Jersey. In an interview with North Jersey, Wap credited his hometown with making him the man he is today. “Paterson turned me into a man, and it turned me into Fetty Wap. That’s why I represent Paterson so much. If you can’t gain the support of the local area then you’re not going to be able to get the support from nowhere else. When you get love from Paterson, it’s real love,” he said.
3. Wap’s Sister Called Out Zeona on Facebook
Earlier in October 2015, Wap’s sister, Divinity Maxwell took to her Facebook page to accuse Zeona of not even wanting custody of the couple’s daughter. Maxwell alleges that Zeona had said she would have gotten an abortion if she thought she was going to be a “single mother.” Zeona commented on the rant saying “You funny as hell if you think you, your mother, or your brother is taking my daughter from me!” She also denied the abortion allegation. The two then get into a back-and-forth, refuting and making more allegations against each other. In one claim, Maxwell says that Zeona has a boyfriend who has been in prison since 2013.

4. Wap’s Other Babymama Says the Rapper Is a Great Father
Back in April 2015, the mother of Wap’s son, posted on Instagram to tell the world what a great dad Wap is. She wrote “This goes to show you that you don’t have to be with someone to still have a great bond an family 11years now an still going #greatparents#coparents#friends#family(why they gotta be yellow tho? Where the mixed emoji?” It had been reported that Wap’s breakout hit “Trap Queen” was written about Reese while the two were still together. In an interview with Vibe, Wap explained the love he has for his son “The day I got signed, the first thing I did was call my son. I picked up my son. I ain’t call my mother, I ain’t call nobody else, I just called my son, crying. He ain’t know what’s going on, I was crying telling him that I love him. He thought something was wrong. He was like, ‘What’s wrong?’ I was like, ‘Nothing, I love you.’”
5. Just Days Before the Arrest, Wap Signed an International Recording Deal With Sony
News of the arrest warrant comes just as Fetty Wap signed a worldwide publishing deal with Sony Music. As the contract was inked Sony CEO Martin Bandier said “It is always refreshing when a new artist comes on the scene with a bunch of hits like Fetty Wap has, so we are thrilled that he has now decided to become part of the Sony/ATV family. With a talent like his, there is no doubt he is both the man for today as well as tomorrow.” His first album, Fetty Wap, was released in September 2015 and debuted at No.1 in the Billboard charts and charted at No. 15 in the UK charts. He’s the first rapper to debut at No.1 since 2013.
