Atlanta police said the woman, identified as Leslie Holden, and Moss “sustained visible minor injuries.” Officers said they “were unable to determine the primary aggressor of the altercation, so both parties” were charged with battery.

Both Bow Wow and Holden were detained at Fulton County Jail, and the police report says the investigation is still ongoing. Bow Wow had recently been promoting a benefit Super Bowl pop-up shop for his mother on Twitter.

Bow Wow has been retired from his music since 2016. Snoop Dogg acted as the executive producer on his final album, “NYLTH.” After which, Bow Wow announced his retirement on Twitter.
