19-year-old rapper XXXTentacion whose real name is Jahsen Onfroy was charged last October with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, witness tampering and false imprisonment. The rapper has pleaded not guilty to all charges but if convicted on all four counts the rapper could be facing a lengthy prison sentence.
The alleged victim spoke to the Miami Police department back in January and the details are graphic to say the least. The 142 page deposition details a pattern of abuse at the hands of 19-year-old XXXTentacion.
The alleged victim states that she first met the rapper online and went to a movie theater with him back in May 2016, that same night He invited her to his show and after the show he invited her to his house in North Miami. As the night went on he asked her to move in with him and the next day she left her ex-boyfriends place and move in with XXXTentacion.
She states the abuse started two weeks later after she complimented one of his friends on his new jewlery, she states the ‘Look At Me’ rapper slapped her and broke her iphone6s. Later that night after replacing the phone they were in the bedroom and he asked her to choose between two “grilling utensils” a pitchfork and a barbecue cleaner because he was gonna put it in her vagina. She states she chose the pitchfork and he started gently scrapping it down her leg and she passed out, she says he never penatrated her with the pitchfork.
Another incident happened during a show in Orlando the rapper was upset that she was rapping along to one of his song and she began to sing the other artist featured on the track verse, that set off XXXTentacion off and he head butted her. The abuse didn’t end there he punched, stomped and put her in a bathtub where he continued hitting and kicking her “he wanted to cut my tongue out for singing the song”.
When asked during her deposition when did he threaten to kill you the alleged victim states “Well when we lived in Orlando it was literally everyday”.
It wasn’t until October 8th 2016 that she was finally able to escape by telling him she was going to make him some food. She opened the refigerator door croutched down and snuck out of a side door and ran to the nearest main street and asked someone to use their phone. She called the only number she remembered her ex-boyfriend who she was staying with before moving in with XXXTentacion. Her ex’s mother came to pick her up and drove her straight to the Miami Police Department.
XXXTentacion released a series of video’s in which he states ” I am insensitive because I refuse to accept a reality for myself that is not my own, I will not have fabricated stories pushed on me, and having people trying to make me submissive off some shit I ain’t do…i’m good. If you’re not with me keep my name out your mouth, it’s not that hard or if you realized that my name is power, you should use it positively so I can shed a little light on you”
The trial is set for October 5th in Miami
