Justine Skye Talks About Abuse With Sheck Wes
Singer and Model Justine Skye opens up about her past abuse in her relationship with rapper Sheck Wes. The 23 year old took to twitter to accuse her ex abuse and stalking Monday. Skye claimed she was walking with friends and her boyfriend (rapper Goldlink) when the group was stalked and attacked by Wes and his friends.
“Two cars full of n— while he sat in the car like a bitch. You’re pathetic sheck and you beat women,” she wrote. “You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.”
This sparked a back-and-forth battle on Twitter but the ‘war’ has been building since October, when Skye released her single “Build” and its accompanying music video. In the caption she wrote, “Recently I’ve had one of the scariest/heart breaking experiences in my life and it’s still hard for me to talk about. I felt stupid, angry, depressed…blamed myself. Trying to figure out how someone who claimed they loved me so much could find such evil within themselves to hurt me mentally and physically.”
Earlier this year, lyrics from GoldLink's "Justine's Interlude" were interpreted as being about the allegations against Sheck Wes:
“I'm tired of hearin' 'bout if this n***a put hands on you”
Justine released footage of Wes “jumping over the fence of (her) crib to attack” her. She claims he attacked her in this incident.
Roc Nation singer shared various forms of proof, including a screenshot of text messages between her and Chase B, a DJ who works closely with Travis Scott and is an associate of Sheck Wes. In the text exchange, Skye writes that she’s “terrified” and thinks that Wes was “breaking things” while she locked herself in a room and waited for help.
The “Mo Bamba” rapper issued his denial to her allegations.
“I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody.” Sheck, who’s real name is Khadimou Fall, wrote. “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse. But I cannot stand by while lies are repeatedly told about me.”
Representatives of Sheck Wes’ legal and management team issued the following statement late Tuesday evening (Feb. 12):
We are actively investigating the allegations against Sheck Wes and are fiercely standing by him through this. He has denied any wrongdoing whatsoever or violence of any kind and we believe him. He will defend himself against this serious defamation of character with any and all legal remedies available and for now will leave this with the legal process. Sheck is a strong supporter of the rights and liberties of all people and is appalled by these wrongful allegations and attempts to assassinate his character. He will no longer sit by and allow these falsehoods to live on any further.
