Yung Miami & Jai Wiggins Had a Tumultuous Relationship
The relationship between Wiggins and Yung Miami, born Caresha Brownlee, was plagued by domestic violence. In 2019, Wiggins was court ordered to enroll in parenting classes and a domestic violence batterer assessment and intervention program after violating a restraining order that Yung Miami had against him.He was also ordered to stay 500 yards away from Brownlee.
In court documents obtained by The Blast, Brownlee accused him of stalking, harassing her by calling her phone and threatening her on social media in 2018. Their last violent incident was in 2015 when Brownlee claimed that Wiggins dragged her out of her car and repeatedly punched her in her face. Brownlee had to be treated at the hospital after the violent assault. After that encounter, Brownlee was granted sole custody of their son.
They ended their relationship in 2015 and the “Act Up” rapper was able to move on and find love again. She welcomed her second child, named Summer Miami, in October of 2019 with record producer Joshua “Southside” Luellen. Southside is known for producing songs for rapper Future, 2Chainz, Young Thug, Jeezy, Drake, Yo Gotti, Big Sean, Playboi Carti and many more.
