Inside the restroom, Osiris’ girlfriend said he choked and bit her. She alleged a mark left under her left eye was where she’d been bitten.

Last month, Osiris released his debut album The Golden Child Def Jam. Since then, he has instigated conversation by claiming to be the new “King R&B,” dissing artists such as Jacquees and Bryson Tiller in the process.
