Yung Berg's return to the limelight didn't get off to a good start. He has been cut from the cast of VH1's Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood after he was recently arrested for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend Masika Tucker, reports Bossip. As previously reported, the Chicago rapper was recently jailed and charged with criminal obstruction of breathering after an altercation with Tucker left the woman battered and bruised. VH1 has released a statement which reads, in-part: "Based on the severity of the allegations against Yung Berg, VH1 is terminating its relationship with him in connection with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, effective immediately."

The fight allegedly started when Berg went into a drunken rage because his credit card was declined at the Gershwin Hotel in NYC. Tucker told the police Berg grabbed her neck, threw her to the floor, dragged her by her hair and hit her in the face. The incident happened hours after the taping of the LHH reunion show.

Berg has yet to release a statement.
