As the elevator video of Quavo and his former girlfriend, Saweetie continues to do rounds on the internet, people can't stop sharing their two cents about the contents of the video.

The elevator video which was obtained by TMZ features the 'Migos' rapper and Saweetie having an altercation of sorts. The 'Best Friend' singer tries grabbing a call of duty case, while Quavo snatches it back, and pushes her, leading to her falling on the ground of the elevator. Quavo then looks at her and then the camera but makes no attempt to help her, as she appears to struggle to stand up. At the end of the clip, Saweetie is seen limping out of the elevator. While many people slammed the 'Migos' rapper for throwing his former girlfriend on the ground, there are few who seem to be firmly on Quavo's side. One of his allies is surprisingly his fellow band member- Offset's baby mama Shya L'amour.

Shya appeared to be defending Quavo when an Instagram user called out the rapper for "physically assaulting" Saweetie in the clip. "This is not an altercation. This is a man clearly physically assaulting his woman. Call it what it is. Domestic Abuse. SMH," the user wrote. Shya immediately came to Quavo's response by pointing out how the whole video or complete sequence of events that led up to and the aftermath of the clip weren't shown. "But this isn't the whole video," she replied hinting at the possibility that there might be more to the video than what meets our eyes.

Shya L'amour is her stage name, her real name is Nicole Marie Algarin. She was born in 1988 in Florida. She briefly dated Offset from April 2014 to July 2014. This was way before 'Migos' became one of the most successful rap groups in the world. Although Shya and Offset split up, she gave birth to their baby Kalea Cephus in 2015. But Offset wasn't present in Kalea's life during her formative years, as he still wasn't entirely sure if she was really his daughter. According to YourTango, although Shya offered to pay for a DNA test to prove that Kalea was indeed Offset's daughter, he refused to take it. She also added that the rapper not only blocked her number but also changed his number after she told him that she was pregnant.

Eventually, Offset came around and accepted Kalea as his daughter. But Shya felt that she was getting only 'limited financial support' from her baby daddy for her daughter. So, she went to court seeking for more child support money. This caused a significant strain in not only her relationship with Offset but also his wife Cardi B. Shya then went on to reveal a bunch of scathing texts where she showcased Offset begging her for sexual favors while he was married to Cardi, and she was pregnant with their child. Ever since then the trio maintained a low profile when it came to airing dirty laundry against each other.
