(CMR) Comedian and recording artist Majah Hype has been arrested on charges of simple battery and making terroristic threats and acts in Georgia, USA.
Majah Hype, whose real name is Joseph Nigel Theron, was arrested for kidnapping, false imprisonment, and battery in 2021 in relation to an incident with his ex-fiance, Latisha Kirby. The details of his latest arrest are not yet known.
According to public records, he was again arrested on Sunday, 19 February 2023, and is currently listed as an inmate by the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia. He was being held without bond.
In 2020, Major Hype's ex-girlfriend accused him of physically abusing her, which led to his arrest in January 2021. In a nasty breakup, Kirby went public about the comedian being abusive for years. She said he had even held a gun to her head during one violent incident.
Majah Hype alleged that Kirby was a promiscuous woman and revealed private conversations from her phone on a live Instagram video.
