Fans believe Justine Skye's social media behavior indicates that Sheck Wes may have been abusive towards her.
"Build" singer Justine Skye recently spoke candidly about her harrowing experiences with domestic abuse. In a post explaining the meaning behind the visual for the aforementioned song, Justine delved into detail about her past. “As [Domestic Violence] 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," she wrote."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."
Though Justine explicitly refrained from naming her abuser, some of the musician's fans took to the task of uncovering their identity. Among some of the supposed culprits was "Mo Bamba" hitmaker Sheck Wes. Justine subsequently liked a tweet referring to Wes noting that “it’s probably tough as hell for her to watch her abuser’s star rise the way his has recently.” A closer look at the tweet reveals it to be part of a thread accusing Sheck Wes of being Justine's abuser. What's more is the fact that the singer appeared to have liked another similar tweet from this same thread.
Responding to the increased interest in her social media activity, Justine tweeted, “I never said who it was because I knew it wouldn’t matter to a lot of you,” she wrote. “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.”
Sheck Wes has yet to comment on the accusations.
