MediaTakeOut.com just received some very SAD news. R&B singer Mario was arrested, and charged with ASSAULTING his mother.
Here's how our peeps over at TMZ are reporting it:
Mario's mother Shawntia Hardaway -- a former heroin addict -- told cops the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant had been "throwing and damaging property" ... and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.
Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment -- including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.
Mario's mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week -- in which he pushed her "eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall."
Now before we all judge. Remember - Mario's mom was a HEROIN ADDICT . . . so she may be cooking this whole story up. . .
SAY NO TO DRUGS!!! I KNOW SHE MADE MISTAKES BEFORE......
What Kinda *** Is That ? I Lov[ed] Mario !
She fell off, and stole something. Sad to hear this.... She was doing well. Gonna pray for him & her.
WOW THATS NOT COOL AT ALL,SHAME,SMDH
well that *** needed a *** whoopin a while ago. i guess hes a little passive aggressive. *kanye shrug*
Say it aint So!
He didn't beat her up mto but pushed her & her head hit the wall ...not that this justifies his actions but get the facts straight please!
Hope they manage to solve w/e issues they're experiencing as well as his mom staying clean...smh
Dang Mario! 1st CB beats his gf now Mario's beating his mom. Not a good look at all.
well she wanted to be Mario's manager so that she could tap into that money, I bet you she is lying so that Mario can help her feed her bad habits. Lying Crackhead
Man, is Mario on drugs too?????
Something always seems OFF about that boy.
Never expected that from him. I hope they can work out whatever is going on.
this will bring him some much needed attention (if people outside of mto care) to hopefully reignite his career. america hates black women, so they'll find a way to make it her fault, especially since she's a crackhead.
Wow I really hope this story is false. There's no justification for raising your hands to your mother or any woman for that matter.
Mario where you getting all this anger from.......this dude going through
entertainment aint no joke no more
......:::::watch me work:::::.....
I know she played a good role in getting her son locked up I beat he was only trying to help her get in
another program and she went off once a heroin head always a heroin head real talk
Sorry to hear that!
Prolly caught her tryna steal $20 out his purse again...twitter.com/Ruste_Juxx
I knew a kid who had to deal with his mother on crack. She stole from him, brought all sorts of strange men to the house, she would pawn/sell his clothes and jewelry and she mentally and physically abused him ever since we could remember. He joined the miltary to get away from her and he did okay for himself except he has issues with anger and rage, he can't maintain healthy or respectable relationships in his life with women and he has a serious drinking problem.
Men don't handle bad mother issues very well. I'm praying for Mario and others who are in that situation, it's a lonely painful road.
He looks just like her! I hope they work it out! That's a nice pic of Mario and his mom!
N***A !? HOW U GONNA BEAT UP ON U MOMZ MENG ??? UR MOMZ YO !?!?! U LOSIN CRAZY RATINGS FOR BEIN SUCH A *** ! GROW SOME BALLLS MENG AND GO FITE N****Z YUH OWN SIZE OR BIGGER ! *** !
JAMAICAN MASSIVE , WI LARGE !
Y'all quick to trust the word of a "recovering" drug addict. Just like a convicted felon her word is no longer bond. I need to hear Mario's side of the story before I believe anything.
When they become a junkie their not ur mother no more because they will steal ur s@it for the dope. I seen it all before trust me. Until they get clean that's when u can except them back into ur lives. Other than that the only love they got is for the dopeman. Put nothing pass no junkie especially a heroin addict.
i bet anything that he is on drugs and thats y he probably flipped..maybe she realized he has a problem because of her own...so dont be to quick to judge...
Years of suppressed anger came out all at once. Still no excuse tho...
Maybe she was using again and I understand him being upset over it, but never NEVER put your hands on your mama like that!
maybe she said no when he told her to "braid my hair..."... follow it @young_deac
Can I just say, that she is a good-looking former heroin addict? That first pic makes her look like a lovely, maternal woman. I just wanted to draw attention to that.. Cuz I've seen addicts & none of them look as good as her. I wonder how long she was strung-out for?
Wtf does her being an addict have 2 do w/anything?
I swear mto loves 2 put B.W. Under the buss!
Whatever she did, it does not validate him hitting her. He is grown and should have walked away from the situation. My prayers go out to them.
sad sad sad
So what these are real problems when the person that brought you on the world is killing themself and all the money or love in the world can't stop it you might occasionally punch stuff or people. Mario you may have to let her go. Addicts will kill you too. Just sayin.
This had "addict" written all over it.
*** she need to smoke a rock of black tar heroine and call it a ***...
I knew him and his mom had problems, but ***...
Men hitting their girlfriends is bad enough, but to be putting your hands on your own mama is just crazy! But I don't know the full story so I won't judge. I just hope they all can get it together.
Exactly Being_Me....It has been obvious for a while that Mario while still deeply loving, and showing concern for his mother, has carried years of resentment, hurt, and shame toward her for not being there for him like she should've.Every interview where he talk about her, you can almost taste it.. so sad, smh!!
I hope this isn't true...I don't care how many drugs she *** up her arm, he *** be hittin his
IF TRUE...HE NEED TO BE ***....
Its only so much that you can take from an addict. This woman has put this boy through hell and back. I saw that MTV ***. She has turned her back on this kid for years putting her drugs before him. He has taken care of her financially for years and she calls the cops on him. He probably snapped. His mother was actually bringing drugs into the house *** up in the bathroom in his house. She is no kind of mother. I am starting to wonder if she back on that stuff and he had enough. Everyone reaches their breaking point. I would have tossed her *** a long time ago, mother or not.
don't believe everything you read in the media. I don't believe this ***. Smdh
i dont believe this ish!! sounds like *** it's so pathetic ppl believe everthing they here, his mom drug addict probably mad cus she needs money for drugs has no creditbility at all i'm glad ya'll fooled.
She prolly was using again. Poor Mario.
MARIO HAS STRUGGLED WITH HIS MOM BEING A USER HIS ENTIRE LIFE AND ALL SHE HAS DONE IS STEAL FROM HIM AND SELL THINGS OUT OF HIS HOUSE AND PAWN THEM OFF TO PPL AND HE HAS TO TRACK THE PPL DOWN IN THE STREET TO GET THINGS BACK.. THIS STILL DOESN'T JUSTIFY HIM PUTTING HANDS ON HER BUT SHE REALLY HAS A SERIOUS SERIOUS DRUG ADDICTION AND SHE DOESN'T WANT HELP JUST A HAND OUT!
How is this news? All black men beat women. That's just what they do.
This is a shame!
Where is his ain't sh*t daddy? This little boy was left abandon with a crackhead mama for 18 years. Niccas ain't sh*t and *** ain't neither.
BOY!! WTF iz wrong wit U?!!..that's still yo-momma ***!gga*
Wow how sad. Follow me twitter.com/kishakute
wow! still i don't believe someone looking as innocent and calm as Mario would do that especially to his mom...that's a lie until i can see some solid evidence....
Where is his ain't sh*t daddy?
oh no not your mama Mario whether she was a druggie or not never beat a woman that gave life to your azz
*** mario that aint wat u do son!!! u never threaten ur mom or even scare her let alone break her *** and push her or hit her - *** that!! mario done *** up i kno he prob was mad his mom was a crackhead *** prob tryn 2 take his $ but he need 2 just leave her alone and never go back - not beat her!!!! drop that *** out ur life if she a crackhead.. u dont beat ur momma tho.
@datouch....You sound just as ignorant as the women you are talking about. Drug addicts are people of every race and is not limited to black women. Get your facts straight then talk about the truth. Dumb ***.
well, who knows..her word against his..she is a "former heroin addict" and she could have relapsed and he went off...he is a strong brotha having to deal with a issue with drug abuse with his mother...keep them in prayer..
How da hell u beat up your own *** SHE GAVE BIRTH TO U ungratefull ***** she should of threw u in da garbage truck
@Datouch. *** yo p*ssy a** up ho! I'm so sick of you talking bad about black women. Either u a [EXPLETIVE], a ***, or both. Kill ya self. God bless America and no where else!
@ datouch u dumb *** I'm puertorican *** most of my high school friends now r hooked on drugs so is not just blk women is all races
I do not believe it at all!!!!!!!!
Black men raise your sons! That's why these young men are *** and violent. Black men are a disgrace to the black race.
I FEEL FOR HIM BECAUSE I KNOW HOW IT IS TO HAVE PARENTS ON DRUGS AND ALCHOL AND THEY LIE MY PARENTS DID THE SAMETHING TO ME UNTIL I LEFT BUT A CRACK HEAD CANT BE TRUSTED
Rotflmao@ cooking up this story. Another woman beater. HE IS A PUNK . Mario(Ike Turner). He is the 2010 Chris Brown. Smh
It only says what he did, not what she did.. She couldve stolen that mans money, maxed out cards or whatever to support her habit and its always 3 sides to every story.. I wanna hear the other half before I just make assumptions about him..
So WAS a heroine addict...emphasis on the "past tense". And since when does somebody's mistakes in the past give their child a right to beat their *** in the future? I don't care about Mario....men who beat up women are punks, plain and simple. That's like grown folk who beat up on children. It's never an even fight.
@Pro Hater I have to agree with you about what you said about somebody who put their hands on their mother.
wtf! dumbasz ***!gga dont ever put hands on a woman especially your own mama. whats wrong wit you? all *** are the same they some puszy asz bietches. girls rule fa life! bahahaha
I bet Mario was thinking how can i TOP CHRIS BROWN.
AUDIO: Of mario to chris brown on the phone.
" In your face chris! I saw your Rihanna with my MOTHER"
Iono know the whole story but I can say that regardless, you don't hit your mom.. that's just *** up.. it makes men look soooo unattractive when they hit women, & we *** hit them either.. & i'm guessing that somewhere breezy is relieved that this negative attention has gravitated towards somebody else
Wow Heroic addict or not he could of always walked away....
Rotflmao @ the Proverbial hater! Before I read your comment the first thing I thought was maybe he whooped her *** for passing on that ugly *** mug! But on a serious note you never hit the woman who gave you life. Hell I'm grown and I won't even cuss around mine.
***, thats *** up! Both of them need help!
Dont understand whatz goin on with todays youth. Not 2 long ago heard about a son giving stitches to his MOM's face. What is this world coming 2. AND yawl sound real stupid with that lightskin vs dark skin BS. SMH
WOW! THATS AWFUL
IF THIS STORY IS TRUE, 1ST OF ALL, MARIO SHOULD NEVER HAVE PUT HIS HANDS ON HIS MOTHER, HOWEVER IF SHE IS UNABLE TO GET THE DRUGS OUT OF HER LIFE, THEN MARIO NEEDS TO ADMINSTER TOUGH LOVE (THE HANDS OFF KIND). GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE WITH OUT HER UNTIL, IF AND WHEN YOU ARE SURE SHE CAN COPE WITHOUT GETTING HIGH! HER PROBLEM IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM!
You People Are Psychotic With Your Black On Black Hate.
i have never heard of mario being violent before, so before we judge they need our prayers, not our criticism. its hard living with an addict, mother or not, and unless u have walked in those shoes, u *** judge. they both need help, she needs NA and he need Alanon to learn how to deal with his mother and her addiction.
She probably needed her druggie azz beat. I have no sympathy for a heroin addict. She's trash.
There is always three sides to a story, his, hers and the Truth! The fact of the matter is that I refuse to base any judgement on this story until the truth really comes out. His mother has been addicted to heroin all of his life -- he is supporting her, he has paid for her stay at rehab, to add insult-to-injury SHE LIVES WITH HIM!!! None of know what caused it. Does it make it right that he hits his mom, no! WE all have breaking points, though. I'm not in his situation, haven't been there THANK GOD, but I will not cast any judgement, but instead pray for him. Mario you have to let go.
Follow me on twitter @aprilapey
She may have relapsed & stole some money from him.
What the f*ck does her being a former heron user over ten years ago have to do with this. Stop spreading your ignorance MTO
In fact I must say that I'm not surprised that he overstepped that line. I saw an interview/segment years ago and they didnt really exhibit an Mother child relationship...if he the kind of piece of sh*t that would hit a woman, he certainly wouldnt have a problem putting his hands on a Woman that he never respected as the Woman who gave him life.
WOW STOP PLAYIN SMDH
Ya'll mofos on here r sad lolz, grown ppl acting no different than the kids half ya'll age..
She was on drugs less than 10 years ago & he pressed her to get into rehab, which she didnt want to go. He made a song about her on his last CD so I believe this may be exaggerated on her part. But I'm praying for both.
thats some *** should never put your hands on your mother realtalk
if this is true..let me just say he wouldn't even try it if he had a mother like mine!
i hope this idiot didnt hit his mom..i dont care if she did drugs or use them now, no man should hit a women let alone your own mother.Shame on him, i dont like women beaters, imma have to let u go mario on this one.
F**k that his mom is a junky she could be lying she was trying to do the same *** on the show they did together trying to take his money and take over his career so f that ppl already juging him.
I bet he was pushing her because he may have found out that she was back on drugs. You know addicts can't stay on that right path too long before they have a "slip" up. It may have been outta hurt and anger if he did do it.
WELL SHE WAS A HEROIN ADDICT WHICH MEANS SHE PROBABLY WASNT THERE FOR HIM THROUGHOUT HER ADDICTION SO I DOUBT HE HAS ANY RESPECT FOR HER! I THINK HE MAY HAVE CAUGHT HER TRYING TO GET BACK ON IT AND IT *** HIM OFF!
JUNKY OR NOT IF HE DID PUT HIS HANDS ON HIS MOTHER HE REALLY OUGHTA BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF...ALL BROWNIE POINTS ARE OUT THE WINDOW-
*REAL LEADERS DON'T TWEET*
How does pushing someone into a wall equal beating them up? lmfao, come on mto this title is very misleading.
Hopefully mario and his mother can work this situation out.
@manifest *** the *** up. a man aint got no right to push you...grab you...hold you down and restrain...all the *** is the same as hitting. keep your dam hands to yourself. i didnt hit you i just pushed you through a wall...thats ***. keep yo *** hands to yourself
@natashanobody what you dont know is that if a woman snap and kill a man and the police check his records and he got domestic violence charges....then that woman walks. i saw the *** happen. i went to a funeral of a dude that beat women. the last woman he beat killed him and when they ran his record he had 5 domestic violence charges and that woman walked off free. so while you sitting around talking *** maybe you need to watch what the *** you say. all women dont take that *** they go get a gun and *** that man or get a knife and stab him. youre going to get somebody killed...

something like dat!
Mario all you freinds,love ones & fans from Baltimore, Md got your back we all know how your mother been getting down for years on the streets of east baltimore you helped her out and if it wasint for you and your sucsess she wouldint have nothing her knowing you not supporting her drug habbit is the problem thats why she wanna put you through all this ***.
mario sweetie say it aint so how could u ever raise the hand to the woman who brought u in this world smdh!!!
Mario grew up with his grandmother because his mother was a full blown addict. He is only 24-years-old and he has been taking care of his mother since he was a teenager because her 20+ year addiction has her by the ***. In his special his mother is *** driving around looking for a hit while living with her boyfriend in her 21-year-old SON'S house. Not to mention that he has been taking care of younger siblings because his mother has always been a hot drug-addicted mess. Not condoning his actions, but I probably would have whooped that *** myself, I promise you.
