A spokesperson for Major League Soccer confirmed earlier this week that Sheck Wes has been pulled from an upcoming ad campaign the rapper was supposed to star in. “In light of the recent news regarding Sheck Wes, he is no longer part of the campaign," an MLS spokesperson said on Tuesday -- a day after Justine Skye made allegations Wes physically abused and stalked her.
"Taking a walk with my friends and my man and Sheck Wes (my abuser) and his friends decide to STALK US and attack my friends," she wrote on Twitter on Monday. "Two cars full of n**gas while he sat in the car like a bitch. You’re pathetic sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again."
The allegations aren't new. They first surfaced in October 2018 through Twitter and a subsequent interview on the Breakfast Club that made many speculate that her abuser was Sheck Wes although Skye didn't confirm it verbally until earlier this week.
Sheck Wes has since denied the allegations. His legal and management team issued a statement denying Skye's allegations. Read below.
"We are actively investigating the allegations against Sheck Wes and are fiercely standing by him through this. He has denied any wrongdoing whatsoever or violence of any kind and we believe him. He will defend himself against this serious defamation of character with any and all legal remedies available and for now will leave this with the legal process. Sheck is a strong supporter of the rights and liberties of all people and is appalled by these wrongful allegations and attempts to assassinate his character. He will no longer sit by and allow these falsehoods to live on any further."
