XXXtentacion burst on the rap scene last year with his breakout single “Look at Me”, which originally debuted in 2016 then was re-released in 2017. Ever since his meteoric rise to fame XXX has been a very controversial figure. The rapper has a very violent past, in 2014 he was sent to a youth detention center for a year on gun possession charges. In 2016 he was arrested and charged with robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Then in October of 2016 he was arrested again, this time on charges of false imprisonment, witness tampering, and aggravated battery of a pregnant victim. The trial for this case is set to take place on October,5th, 2017 after being pushed back several times.
The testimony of X’s alleged victim, ex girlfriend Geneva Ayala, has now become public knowledge, and the details of the case are extremely disturbing. The abuse began when the two were living together in North Miami in May 2016. The first detail she tells is when X slapped her and damaged her phone for complimenting another mans jewelry. Later the same day X, who’s real name is Jahseh Onfroy, made the victim choose between “a barbecue pitchfork and a barbecue cleaner” being put in her vagina.
The abuse continued even when the two moved to Orlando in July of 2016. Onfroy allegedly head-butted, punched, kicked, and stomped the victim for humming along to another artist’s music. He also allegedly threatened to cut out her tongue on this occasion. When Onfroy was arrested for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, the victim had sex with another man. When Onfroy learned of this, the abuse became more violent and frequent.
After Orlando the two moved to Sweetwater, Florida. Onfroy allegedly strangled the woman on multiple occasions, one time so violently another resident had to step in and quell the matter.
In October of 2016 the victim found out about her upcoming pregnancy. Later the same month Onfroy placed a call to the man the victim had sex with while he was in jail. After the call Onfroy went on to punch, head-butt, stomp, and strangle the woman, before allegedly threatening to kill her in the bathtub. When the victim asked to be taken to the hospital, Onfroys roomates instead took her to an unfamiliar apartment and took her phone. She was able to get ahold of her ex boyfriends mother and secure a ride to the hospital, after spending two days locked in the room.
This testimony is alleged but it almost seems too gruesome to make up. This begs the question, do you support XXXtentacion and his future endeavors after hearing this? The rappers influence and musical talent can’t be denied, but neither can his violent past. If you do support him please comment why, ditto to if you don’t. The only thing we can do is wait till October 5th, and one of these people will be vindicated.
