Editor’s note: The details contained in the below story are incredibly graphic. Reader discretion advised.
XXXtentacion’s exploits are well known; however, despite his music video hanging stunt, Eric Andre’s Twitter rant regarding XXX and Kodak Black’s reprehensible records of abuse, little has curbed the insane level of support he gets from fans — not even the truly disturbing allegations of aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering.
However, fans may have a more difficult time justifying their support in the future, now that court documents from the above charges have come to light. Pitchfork has obtained and released the documents, which detail the extent of the abuse that he inflicted on his girlfriend. The incidents described are beyond horrifying.
A few of incidents are detailed below.
When XXXTentacion got out of jail, they moved back in together in North Miami. (On September 16, 2016, court records show, XXXTentacion agreed to house arrest, and was released.) He told her he knew she had cheated on him. He put a knife to her neck, strangled her “a little bit,” and called her a “ho,” she said. That night, he woke her up and told her to go outside, where he picked up an empty glass beer bottle and demanded that she tell him the truth or, “I’m going to fuck you up.” She replied that she already was telling him the truth, that she had cheated and was sorry. He dropped the bottle, slapped her, and let her go back to bed.
About a week later, she and XXXTentacion moved to an apartment in Sweetwater, Fla. In two incidents there, XXXTentacion grabbed her by the neck, strangled her, and forced her down on the bed before another person who lived there came to the rescue. “I’m like scared,” she said, recalling how she felt. “It’s like he’s going to like end up killing me or something.”
In early October 2016, she found out that she was pregnant by XXXTentacion. The pregnancy was planned by both of them. On the afternoon of October 6, he told her to move from the bed they were lying on. He then went out onto the balcony, where she could still hear him, and called up the person she had slept with while XXXTentacion was in jail, demanding to know everything. When XXXTentacion returned inside, he told her, “You need to tell me the truth right now or I’ll kill you and this jit.” She said that “jit” was slang for the unborn child.
He then started elbowing, head-butting, and punching her. He strangled her until she almost passed out. He took her to the bathroom and demanded one last time that she tell him everything or he would kill her in the bathtub. She couldn’t even recognize her face in the mirror—it looked “distorted”—and her left eye was completely shut and “leaking blood.” She was losing vision. She vomited.
We already knew what he was being charged with, but reading the details is stomach-turning. Pitchfork also obtained transcripts of depositions by the woman’s ex-boyfriend, his mother, and the Miami Beach police officer who first questioned the alleged victim, which had previously gone unreported. The ex-boyfriend backed up much of her testimony regarding the allegations of XXXTentacion’s extensive pattern of abuse. The ex-boyfriend’s mother also corroborated her claims, describing injuries to her eyes as “black and blue, purple, every color under the rainbow.”
The officer, Sgt. Amel Soto, testified that the woman claimed to have been attacked for humming along to another artist’s music, saying, “I had never in my entire career heard something like that.”
