Angie Stone has been arrested after allegedly attacking her adult daughter in DeKalb County, Georgia.
According to police, a fight broke out between the 53-year-old singer – who has three Grammy nominations to her name – and her daughter, Diamond, at their home late Monday night.
The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the singer struck her 30-year-old daughter in the face with a metal stand, knocking out her two front teeth.
According to the police report, the singer claims her daughter punched her first and she was trying to protect herself.
Her daughter alleged the fight started when the R&B Divas star came into her room and demanded that she clean up and look after her children, who were running around the house naked.
According to police: ‘Ms. Diamond Stone then went on to state that Ms. Angie Stone started [getting] in her face, telling her she needed to leave because she is tired [of] her.
‘Ms. Diamond Stone then stated her and Ms. Angie Stone started to argue, and that’s when a physical altercation started to occur.’
Diamond and a witness, family friend and rapper Blondy Chisolm – who was once in The Sequence with Angie – claimed they did not know who threw the first punch.
Angie told police after she was punched by her daughter and grabbed the metal stand to protect herself, accidentally hitting Diamond in the face.
Police said in the report: ‘Once she realised this she quickly put the stand down and attempted to get away from Ms. Diamond Stone.
‘Ms. Angie Stone then stated while she tried to get away, Ms. Diamond Stone continued to come after her as if to strike her again but stated that Ms. Blondy Chisolm came to break up the fight.’
Diamond however, claims her mother swung at her intentionally and it was her, and not Angie, who walked away and called 911.
Both women were taken to the DeKalb County Police Department but Diamond was later released with no charges.
Angie however, remains in jail after being charged with a felony count of aggravated domestic assault.
