AceShowbiz - Notorious B.I.G.'s (Biggie Smalls) daughter will definitely go to great lengths for her boyfriend. According to a new report, T'yanna Wallace posted $1 million bond for her boyfriend Tyshawn Baldwin who was previously arrested over hit-and-run incident.
Court documents revealed that the 29-year old fashion designer put up her $1.5 million home in Brooklyn to secure his release with the help of bail bondsman Ira Judelson. Thanks to that, Tyshawn was released on bond two days after he was arrested on August 16.
Tyshawn allegedly sped off during a routine traffic stop in Queens, New York, on August 10. He mowed down three pedestrians, including a mother and toddler who was in a stroller.
The tragic collision unfolded after he was stopped by officers due to illegally parking in an intersection, as well as for having a loud exhaust and dark tinted windows. He initially complied with the police, but fled the scene after a police search showed the Brooklyn resident had a suspended license.
T'yanna's longtime beau later turned himself in on August 16 which led to his arrest. He was hit with 17 criminal charges, including reckless endangerment, unlawful fleeing a police officer as well as endangering the welfare of a child among others.
As for the victims, it was said that the three victims in the hit-and-run incident all suffered injuries. The mother and her 2-year-old child were treated for minor wounds at a local hospital. Meanwhile, another victim, a 35-year-old food delivery man, suffered a more serious injury to his leg.
Tyshawn, who shares a daughter with T'yanna, is set to return to court on October 18. If convicted to all the 17 charges, he faces up to 25 years in prison. The CEO of the apparel line Notoriouss, whose rapper dad died after tragically being gunned down in 1997, has yet to comment on the arrest.
That aside, T'yanna previously revealed that she was not happy that people only saw her as Biggie Smalls' daughter. "I don't like when people say, 'Oh, that's Biggie's daughter,' because that's not my name," she admitted in an interview back in 2020. Fortunately, it was all in the past. "Now everybody knows Notoriouss clothing by T'yanna Wallace. I barely hear 'Biggie's daughter.' I hear T'yanna first, and I like that," she shared.
She stressed that she wanted to be known as herself and make "a name for myself." She went on saying, "I don't want to live off of my dad's money. U want to make my own money. I worked in the cafetaria for a year while I attended Penn State."
