NEW JERSEY (WABC) -- Rapper Fabolous is now facing four felony charges for an alleged attack on his girlfriend at their New Jersey home.

A grand jury indicted the rapper, whose real name is John Jackson, in connection with two alleged incidents in Englewood in March.

He's accused of hitting the mother of his two children, Emily B, several times and knocking out both her front teeth.

He also reportedly threatened her with a pair of scissors and threatened to kill her relatives.

The indictment handed up last week in Bergen County charges him with one count of domestic violence stemming from an incident on March 7. He's charged with two counts for allegedly threatening to shoot or kill three individuals on March 28, including the alleged victim from the earlier incident.

He also faces a weapons count for allegedly brandishing the scissors with intent to use them unlawfully.

Each of the four third-degree crimes carries a maximum sentence of five years.
