Love & Hip Hop’s Nia Riley Alludes To Abuse From Soulja Boy? Rapper Spotted W/ Mehgan James
Big Drako is living his best life, but is at other people’s expense? It is well-documented that rapper Soulja Boy and ex-“Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” star Nia Riley had been in a nearly decade-long on and off relationship – but it seems to have come to a screeching halt. Amid Soulja’s flamboyant resurgence, Nia seems to be making an attempt to shed her old persona as the rapper’s plus-one. She has deleted all, but one of her photos from her Instagram page.
In that photo, she hints at moving on from their “abusive” relationship. The message reads:
“I’m doing fine. I think I endured enough physical and mental abuse to be over that situation. But thanks!”
Nia continued in the comments section, pointing out that judgmental questioning contributes to why many victims of abuse don’t come forward. Instagram user @coconopuff said:
“10 years smh it will probably take half that to heal and truly be over it sigh that’s usually how it plays out but praying for you and a more positive loving relationship moving forward . He out there!”
Nia Riley replied:
“@coconopuff happily healed and moved on. Thank you!”
Instagrammer @shemes88 criticized:
“Damn, it took ALL THIS TIME? What a waste… of your time hun.”
Nia clapped back:
“@shemes88 you’re also part of the reason people never speak up.”
Nia’s social media changes seem to be in response to Soulja Boy’s sudden public displays of interest in two other women – “Bad Girls Club”/”Basketball Wives” alum Mehgan James and Instagram model Tiona Fernan. In a recent interview with the “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” morning radio show, he eluded to being in a relationship. Soulja Boy said:
“I’m in love right now…she’s just beautiful, bruh. She’s just fine. I’m like, ‘D*mn.’ I worked my whole career to get her, you know what I’m sayin’? I need her…she know who she is!”
Things escalated quickly. They, then, appeared together on Soulja Boy’s Instagram Story.
