After detailing an abusive relationship last year, singer Justine Skye has finally come forward and named her abuser as rapper Sheck Wes. Her latest accusation against the rapper is that Wes stalked her and her new boyfriend along with her friends last weekend. Skye tweeted Monday, “Taking a walk with my friends and my man and Sheck Wes (my abuser) and his friends decide to STALK US and attack my friends.. two cars full of n-ggas while he sat in the car like a b-tch. You’re pathetic Sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.” Skye opened up back in October about surviving an abusive relationship, but did not name her abuser. The singer tapped into her experience with domestic violence for her video “Build,” which she told Billboard was “very sad.” “For the most part, I hope that people get the message I am trying to spread, which is awareness of the situation. Standing up to [domestic violence] is extremely important. It can happen to anyone,” she told the magazine. And in a November interview with The Breakfast Club, Skye said the biggest reason she hesitated to name her abuser is because she didn’t “think that people would care.”
Wes responded to Skye’s allegations, calling them “lies.” “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse,” Wes tweeted Tuesday. “But I cannot stand by while lies are repeatedly told about me. I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody.” However, on Tuesday, Skye claimed to have footage of the rapper climbing over a gate “to attack me,” which she later shared, along with a text message in which she asks a friend, DJ and producer Chase B, to help her. Wes has yet to respond to the footage.
