UPDATE: Representatives of Sheck Wes’ legal and management team issued the following statement late Tuesday evening (Feb. 12):

We are actively investigating the allegations against Sheck Wes and are fiercely standing by him through this. He has denied any wrongdoing whatsoever or violence of any kind and we believe him. He will defend himself against this serious defamation of character with any and all legal remedies available and for now will leave this with the legal process. Sheck is a strong supporter of the rights and liberties of all people and is appalled by these wrongful allegations and attempts to assassinate his character. He will no longer sit by and allow these falsehoods to live on any further.

ORIGINAL STORY: Singer Justine Skye has accused Sheck Wes of abuse. She took to Twiter Monday night (Feb. 11) to reveal that Sheck Wes reportedly abused her in the past when they were a couple and most recently claimed that he along with a group of men stalked her and her friends and then attacked them.

“You’re pathetic Sheck and you beat women,” she wrote in her first tweet. “You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again.” In the same tweet, she states that she was on a walk “with my friends and my man” when the alleged incident took place. It was recently revealed that her boyfriend is GoldLink, who addressed the abuse allegations against Sheck Wes in a song called “Justine’s Interlude” earlier this year.

In the early morning hours today (Feb. 12), Sheck Wes took to Twitter to addressed the allegations. “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse,” Sheck wrote. “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.”

Skye has since responded to that statement by releasing a text conversation between herself and Chase B, who’s the DJ for both Sheck and Travis Scott. Reading the text exchange, Skye writes that she’s “terrified” and thinks that Wes was “breaking things” while she locked herself in a room and waited for help. She later shared footage of Sheck Wes jumping a gate to her what appears to be her residence, claiming that the rapper later attacked her. Sheck Wes then responded to those tweets by saying — and immediately deleting — “Show us your bruises not me hopping the fence to get my shit back Justine.”

On Oct. 23, Justine Skye spoke about experiencing domestic violence in an Instagram post about her new video for “Build,” but refrained from naming anyone. “Recently I’ve had one of the scariest/heart breaking experiences in my life and it’s still hard for me to talk about,” she wrote. “I felt stupid, angry, depressed…blamed myself. 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 never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you,” she wrote on Twitter in November, explaining why she never initially named Sheck Wes as her abuser. “That’s just the reality of it. But I made a video about it in hopes that it can inspire someone else get away [from] their abusive partner. That was my goal.”
