Who is Emily Bustamante?

Emily Bustamante is an American reality television personality, celebrity stylist, and shoe designer. She is also recognized as the partner of rapper Fabolous, born John David Jackson, with whom she has been in a relationship since the early 2000s.

In March 2018, Bustamante alleged she broke her two front teeth after Fabolous reportedly hit her. According to the court papers posted by NorthJersey.com, she told police that her partner punched her seven times before assaulting her and her family.

The reported altercation began on 7 March 2018, when Fabolous allegedly grew “enraged” after discovering she was in Los Angeles via Instagram. As per an affidavit of probable cause, Fabolous allegedly wrote Bustamante a threatening message in which he stated that he intended to smash her in the head with a baseball bat and kill her but also that he “did not want to go out like that.”

Following the incident, Bustamante called her father and brother to have Fabolous’ weapons removed from their Englewood, NJ home, fearing they would be used against her. Moreover, Fabolous was alleged to have entered the scene and challenged Emily, her father, and her brother.
