Coolio's Baby Mama

He Brought Home a Chick

And Beat Me

Coolio
should know better than to bring another woman home to the house he shares with his girlfriend ... and he should also know better than to allegedly punch her in the face.

TMZ has learned the rap legend -- aka Artis Ivey Jr. -- was popped on April Fools' Day after he allegedly pushed Anabella Chatman to the ground and punched her in the face.  And to add insult to injury ... according to the police report, Coolio then hightailed it out of there with their toddler son and the other woman.

Actually ... he didn't get out clean.  Anabella says Coolio struck her with his car as he beat his hasty retreat -- in fact, cops say she had tire marks on her leg.  Pretty compelling evidence.

Coolio tried convincing cops HE was the victim and that she scratched him in a jealous rage, but they weren't buyin' what he was sellin' ... so he was taken to the pokey.

Calls to Coolio were not returned.

the truth    

If you want the truth which will exonerate Coolio. I'll give it to you. Annabella Cindy Bella Cindy Lisa Chapman Belles I is not telling the truth. Its wrong that you print the stories of gold digging jealous vindictive calculating malicious attention seekers. She is not his woman. Mimi is!!! Annabella flew back after a 4 month vacation in Buenos Aires trying to get Coolio back. Coolio gave her a place to stay for his son. He felt bad that his son has asthma from Annabella marijuana smoking. Coolio was the better parent because he paid attention to his son. Annabella would dump the child for days at other peoples homes. Check her Facebook under Cindy Lisa, you don't see many pictures of her son but many of her "sisters". Sick how a gold digger from another country comes to America to bleed California, Nevada and now Coolio! I hope to get a supeona for the court hearing because she lied to the police because Coolio wouldn't take her back. I hope Mimi stands by Coolio because even Coolio son prefers Mimi over his own mother!!!

the truth    

I find it interesting how this woman receives calmed because she can't afford medical, but can afford to jet around the globe, buy designer clothes, shoes, bags, get manis-pedis, get a marijuana card and blow smoke in her sons face and have him hospitalized for 3 days for asthma...did any of the reps from welfare in California check to see two she also manages to pay to stay in the fanciest casino hotels and dine on steak and lobster yet be on welfare. Or is it only the ones who are too good to go to safe nest treated like queens and celebrities. Hope TMZ paid her well, and she reported her earnings to California and Nevada welfare!

Another piece of trash who think his jusk is an idol. Look at his flippin' ugly mug and the sweeeeet hair cut. Horns and all. What a loser. Mummble a song and you become famous. Wear your pants around your ankles and you are a trend setter. This cat is butt ugle, so who in their right mind would even think about going to his house. Oh, I know who.....the BIG girl who no one else wants. Why is it that ?
