Sheck Wes Accused of Domestic Abuse & Stalking

12 February 2019

American rapper Sheck Wes has been accused of stalking and domestic abuse. The news came about when former partner and singer Justine Skye took to twitter exposing these allegations towards him.

She claims Sheck and a congregation of men stalked her and her friends, and then attacked them.In a series of tweets by his ex-partner Justine Skye, she exclaims “You’re pathetic Sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.” 

Responding to the allegations in the early morning after the tweets were made, Sheck also took to social media in order for him to clear up the alleged rumours. Proceeding to twitter, he wrote: “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse”. 

On the 23rd of October, Skye posted to Instragram, exposing her dealings with domestic abuse. The 23 year-old artist didn’t name any names at this time. Fast-forwarding to November, Justine expressed her feelings further on twitter, “I never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you”

GoldLink, fellow musician and current boyfriend of Skye caused some sort of speculation following his lyrics “I’m tired of hearin’ ’bout if this n***a put hands on you” from his ‘Justine’s Interlude’ feature was interpreted as shade towards the Wes situation.

It doesn’t stop here. Just moments after Sheck Wes responded to the accusations, Justine Skye replied by claiming she had footage of the rapper jumping over the fence of her abode to attack her. An additional screenshot of a conversation between her and Chase B (a DJ who works closely with the record label) was published as further evidence on the case.

“All your friends know what happened”, she concludes her thread with video footage as assured.

Wes, known for his hit song “Mo Bamba”, made it to the US top 10 hits accumulating hundreds of millions of streams. His rise to fame was hasty after his track went viral back in mid-2018.
