Florida rapper Gunplay allegedly lived up to his name by drunkenly pulling an AK-47 on his wife while she was holding their baby — in a fight over him playing the shoot-’em-up game “Call of Duty,” according to cops and his wife.
The 44-year-old “Love & Hip Hop Miami” star (real name Richard Morales Jr.) was arrested Sunday in the Florida city on charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and child abuse, records show.
He allegedly threw glass cups and bottles at wife Vonshae Taylor-Morales, forcing her to cover their 6-month-old daughter with a blanket to protect her from flying glass, according to an affidavit obtained by Law & Crime.
He then pressed an AK-47 against his wife’s chest and said, “I will blow your s—t back,” according to the affidavit.
Taylor-Morales addressed the ordeal on her Instagram page Sunday to say she and her daughter were “safe” — and that she was divorcing the rapper, against whom she had a restraining order.
“Unfortunately Richard is back to using and developed a very bad drinking problem,” wrote the mom, who appeared alongside her husband in the VH1 reality show.
“I’ve tried everything in my power to help him and love him. This is a demon he has to overcome on his own,” she said, saying she believes it’s now “too late.”
She detailed how the fight started when she asked the rapper “to quiet down” because he was yelling while playing “Call of Duty,” waking the baby.
“He started going off on me,” she said — adding that “things went left fast.”
In her Instagram post, Taylor-Morales wrote that she has obtained a restraining order against her rapper husband and was planning to file for a divorce.
“He will never get the chance to disrespect us again,” she wrote to her 90,000 followers, describing Saturday night’s incident as a “very traumatizing experience.”
Police officers who responded to the scene arrested the rapper and seized the assault rifle, she said.
Morales was released from the Miami-Dade County jail after posting $5,000 bond and was ordered held under house arrest pending his next court hearing set for September 19.
