LOS ANGELES — Rapper Tyga was arrested in a felony domestic violence investigation Tuesday, authorities said.

Tyga, 31, whose legal name is Michael Stevenson, was booked after a Tuesday incident in Hollywood, Los Angeles police said.

He was released after posting $50,000 bond, jail records showed.

The arrest came after 22-year-old fashion designer Camaryn Swanson, his ex-girlfriend, posted images online of her face with a black eye.

“I’ve been emotionally, mentally and physically abused and I’m not hiding it,” Swanson said in an Instagram story. She added, “I’m so embarrassed and ashamed it had to get to this but I have to stand up for myself.”

An email seeking comment from a representative for Tyga was not immediately returned.

The rapper, whose hits include “Rack City” (2011) and “Taste” (2018), previously was in relationships with reality TV stars Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna. He appeared on the current season of “The Masked Singer” in a dalmatian costume.
