US rappers Quavo and Saweetie found themselves trending on social media after a video of an elevator altercation between the two stars was leaked to the public.

The video clip is just over a minute long and the former couple can be seen pulling and pushing each other over an orange bag and the video ends with Saweetie on the floor.

Since it was released, fans on social media have condemned the fight, especially Quavo's part of it. 

Saweetie and Quavo dated for two years and recently announced their split.

In a tweet Saweetie said that she had emotionally left the relationship before their actual break-up.

“I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation,” she tweeted. 

“I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women.”
