Celebrities not immune from domestic violence charges

Famed hip hop musician Fabalous has been indicted by a New Jersey court amid serious accusations of abuse.

Explosive tempers, mood swings, checking social media posts without permission, isolation from family and friends, and possessiveness are all signs that someone might be in an abusive dating relationship.
