XXXtentacion Confessed to Domestic Violence Against Pregnant Ex Girlfriend In Secret Recordings
Slain rapper XXXtentacion was at the center of controversy both before and after his death for claims of domestic violence against his then pregnant ex-girlfriend and other violent crimes. Fans, fellow celebrities, and social media users came to his defense after he was murdered in broad daylight – saying someone so young (at 20-years-old) didn’t deserve to die. They also repeatedly mentioned how he was attempting to turn his life around. Well, music publication Pitchfork has released exclusive audio from 2016 of XXXtentacion conversing with friends. In that conversation, he can be heard verbally admitting to the violent crimes he was accused of. The 27-minute long audio footage was obtained from the Miami-Dade County state attorney’s office. In the audio, XXXtentacion expresses where his violent tactics stemmed from.
“You ever seen somebody get their tongue cut out? You ever seen somebody get raped? You ever seen somebody try to kill your mom in front of you?…Every night you go to sleep and you remember what you seen and you remember how it felt and you remember that horrible feeling in your soul. Nobody can comfort you. It’s something I gotta deal with.”
On why he chose to threaten and abuse his ex-girlfriend he says,
“I put my source of happiness in another person, which was a mistake initially, right? But she fell through on every occasion until now. Until I started f*cking her up bruh. I started f*cking her up because she made one mistake. And from there, the whole cycle went down. Now she’s scared. That girl is scared for her life. Which I understand.”
He continued, admitting to a 2016 stabbing:
“I will kill that bitch if she play with me…I’m on [Miami] New Times for stabbing, how many people they put in the news? They said three, it was eight.”
Listen to XXXtentacion’s confessions here. At the time of the rapper’s death in June of this year, he was facing charges of domestic battery by strangulation, aggravated battery of a pregnant victim, and and witness tampering. These cases were closed after his death.
Should the public still hold XXXtentacion in high regard now that a confession can be heard from his own mouth?
