A couple of days ago, rapper and "Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" star Yung Berg was arrested after allegedly beating and choking his girlfriend -- the charge was "obstruction of breathing." Now, the incident has led to him being fired from his TV gig.

TMZ reports that the Chicago native instigated the fight after his credit card was declined "during a night out on the town," and that his girlfriend, Masika Tucker, told cops "the rapper hit her and dragged her around by the hair and grabbed her by the neck."

Thankfully, VH1 doesn't stand for this type of behavior and promptly set Berg afloat on the waters of unemployment.
