Gunplay’s wife, Vonshae Taylor-Morales, posted on Instagram on Sunday (August 20), describing the “traumatizing” incident and alleging that he scared their baby while playing Call of Duty.

She also claimed he has an alcohol problem and intends to file for divorce to safeguard herself and her daughter.

“I just want everyone to know my daughter and I are safe,” she wrote. “Unfortunately, Richard is back using and developed a very bad drinking problem. I’ve tried everything in my power to help him and love him.

“To summarize last night event. I asked Richard to quiet down as he scared the baby sleeping by yelling playing call of duty. He started going off on me for asking him to be quiet.”

She continued: “I tried to collect a bag so my daughter and I can go to a room while he sobers up. He didn’t want us to leave and things went left fast.

She added: “Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers. This is a very traumatizing experience please keep me in your prayers.”
