Rapper Majesty Da Rebel Turns Himself in to Police After Scuffle With Reporter on Live TV
Rapper Majesty Da Rebel said he could "live with the consequences" of his scuffle with WABC-TV reporter CeFaan Kim on live TV, and now it appears he wasn't lying. Majesty, real name Keyjonta Foster, turned himself into New York's Lower East Side precinct on Monday night (March 7) at around 9 p.m, the New York Daily News reports.
Majesty, who police say has three prior arrests including one for having a knife, is now facing a misdemeanor assault charge for his live TV exploits. The aspiring rapper went on a passionate Twitter rant blaming Kim for what happened before he turned himself in. After the incident, he maintained he was simply trying to promote his new music. The only problem, then, might've been that Kim was on official business, and it involved documenting a serious crime.
Kim was reporting an attempted sexual assault when Majesty—wearing a Jason hockey mask—wrapped his arm around his shoulders and began trying to plug his new mixtape. Kim, who's apparently a U.S. Army Reserve sergeant, wasn't having it, and tried to shake Majesty. That's when the camera shifted off of the two and a scuffle began.
When the camera focus is returned to Kim and Majesty, we see Majesty push Kim to the ground before Kim gets back up to retaliate. That's where the video ends. You can see the clip of the confrontation below.
