Justine Skye fans have been going off on Twitter accusing Sheck Wes of abusive behavior. Now some say they believe she may have confirmed that there may be some truth to the claims.
Skye recently took to her Instagram to discuss her experience with domestic violence. Last month for domestic violence awareness awareness month she wrote a lengthy caption and gave fans on some insight on what she’s gone thorough, as well as promote the video for her song “Build”. Check out the post:

As DV Awareness month comes to an end.. the issue doesn’t just disappear. Recently I’ve had one of the scariest/heart breaking experiences in my life and it’s still hard for me to talk about. 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. 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. 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 💜 | Video link in bio
The singer never explicitly named her abuser, but some of her fans decided to play inspector gadget and they believe they know who she’s referring to. This is of course all speculation, but among a few of the supposed absuers is “Mo Bamba” rapper Sheck Wes. To give you the short version, Justine basically liked a tweet where one user suggests that Wes is who she’s referring to. The tweet reads, “it’s probably tough as hell for her to watch her abuser’s star rise the way his has recently.” Upon closer review, the tweet is actually a part of an entire thread accusing Sheck Wes of being Justine’s abuser. The singer may have also liked a similar tweet from the same thread suggesting the same thing. Check it all out for yourself:
TW // domestic abuse
a FYI, Sheck Wes mentally and physically abused Justine Skye.. it sucks that a lot of people probably won’t take this seriously enough and will continue to support him because he’s attractive. Fuck that shit. Abusers don’t deserve a platform pic.twitter.com/XpTNHqZhl1

After the thread came to light Justine tweeted this out:
I never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you.. it’s just something for you to talk about today. That’s just the reality of it.
But I made a video about it in hopes that it can inspire someone else get away for their abusive partner.. That was my goal

Neither Sheck Wes, or anyone from his team has yet to comment on the accusations.
