Gunplay's wife had asked him to be more quiet while playing Xbox.

According to reports, Gunplay was recently arrested in Miami. He is now facing charges relating to domestic violence, child abuse, and more. Allegedly, the 44-year-old's wife had asked him to be more quiet as he played Xbox, in order not to disturb their daughter. According to his wife, this led the rapper to point a rife at her.

Luckily, his wife Vonshae Taylor-Morales and their child are safe. She took to social media earlier today to comment on the situation. "My daughter safety is my first priority," she began her message. "Unfortunately [Gunplay] is back using and developed a very bad drinking problem.
