Minnesota Vikings star Dalvin Cook has had a spectacular season with one of NFL's highest yards-per-carry average and three games with over 100 rushing yards out of six appearances. However, things aren't looking too good for the running back off the field.

US Military Sergeant First Class Gracelyn Trimble, an ex-girlfriend of Cook, filed a lawsuit against him on Tuesday, November 9, with graphic descriptions of violence and photos showing facial wounds. The 29-year-old accused Cook, 26, of giving her "a concussion, leaving a scar on my face and taking me through hell." She mentioned in the filing how her ex allegedly "grabbed her arm, and slung her whole body over the couch, slamming her face into the coffee table and causing her lower forehead and the bridge of her nose to bust open" while she was in the process of breaking up with him. On the other hand, Cook had accused Trimble of extortion and claimed that he was the victim of domestic abuse, CBS Sports reported.

Cook responded to Trimble's civil lawsuit in a statement via his attorney David Valentini, alleging that last November, she broke into his home using a stolen garage door opener, assaulted Cook, and maced him along with two other houseguests. The statement also claimed that Trimble displayed a firearm and forced Cook and the guests at gunpoint to remain in the residence for hours before she injured herself when Cook attempted to prevent her from assaulting a guest. While the relationship with Trimble has evidently gone south, Cook seems to have a new girlfriend already.



 



 

Who is Dalvin Cook's girlfriend?

Cook's new girlfriend is Tokyo Jetz, a hip-hop artist hailing from Jacksonville, Florida. She shot to prominence after posting videos of herself freestyling in her car back in 2016. Jetz has nearly 2 million followers on Instagram and worked at Comcast and Apple before her rapping career took off. She was reportedly fired from her corporate job after she recorded videos while at the job. Jetz lists Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim and Foxy Brown as some of her major influences.



 

Jetz's freestyling content attracted the attention of rapper T.I., who signed her to the Grand Hustle label in 2016. She released her first full-length project, titled 'Viral', shortly after. Jetz would eventually make her mark in the industry with her second album 'Bonafide', with hits like 'No Problem', '1000' and 'Freestyle'. 



 

Tokyo Jetz, whose real name is Shauntrell Pender, reportedly moved to Atlanta, Georgia, shortly after T.I. contacted her in order to focus on her rapping career. Her third and most recent album, 'Cancel Culture', was titled after the backlash she received for her remarks on the George Floyd protests in May 2020. Aside from spitting rhymes, Jetz is also a talented author, with her first book 'Mind Over Matter' published in 2020. She has been spotted in a number of 2021 league games wearing Cook's jersey.
