Casanova's Wife Comments on Rapper's Recent Prison Altercation
In a recent since-dissolved Instagram Story, Casanova's wife Jazzy weighed in on news of Cas' face being sliced during a prison altercation last week. She claims the incident was much smaller than it was played up to be.
"Now that he's sentenced let me address this. I said they saying you got a buck 50 baby," Jazzy captioned a screenshot of Casanova during a video visit, referencing the street term for slicing someone's face with a razor. "He video called me and said they must be talking about that buck 50 you put on my commissary. That boy look good. Y'all tried it with the buck 50. He got a lil 2 dollars."
In a follow-up post, she shared a close-up photo of Casanova that reveals a small cut on his face near his nose.
"This the buck 50 y'all speak of? I hate to bring you the bad news," Jazzy added.
Casanova's Face Cut During Prison Altercation
Back on June 15, Casanova got into a kerfuffle with an inmate at the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, N.J. Fellow inmate Ulysses Lugo reportedly sliced Cas' face with a weapon before Cas and some other inmates walked down Lugo and reportedly returned the favor. According to a correctional officer on the scene, both Lugo and Casanova, born Caswell Senior, were covered in blood following the incident. The slicing occurred on the heels of Cas denouncing his gang affiliation during a court hearing.
