The rapper has denied the claims.
The 20-year-old US rapper Wes, whose real name is Khadimou Fall, hit the mainstream when his single ‘Mo Bamba’ hit the US top 10 in 2018, before his debut album ‘Mudboy’ also charted highly. Now, he’s been accused of domestic violence by his former partner, the singer Justine Skye.
“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,” she Tweeted. “Two cars full of n****s while he sat in the car like a bitch. You’re pathetic Sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.”
She continued: “You’re pathetic… and all the people defending you, ya whole bitch ass label.. everyone. You spreading lies about me. Moral of the story is, if you never put your hands on me you wouldn’t be in this situation and you just keep making it worse.”
Responding to her accusations, 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. I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody.”
This comes after Skye spoke of a history of domestic abuse on Instagram last year without naming Fall in her claims.
“I felt stupid, angry, depressed, blamed myself,” she wrote. “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.
“[I] learned a lot about the people I chose to call my ‘friends’… and about myself. I was one of those people who would be like, ‘No man would ever put their hands on me! .. blah blah blah.’ We all think we know what we’d do until it’s happening to you. “
She continued: “Now, I’m not looking for sympathy and never thought this would be part of the story I’d be telling of my self. Unfortunately it is, but I won’t let it be what defines me.
“I had to find the strength within myself and I’m hoping that through this video I can motivate whoever else is going through this or worse, to do the same. You are strong, you are loved and you deserve so much better.”
