A few weeks ago, Justine Skye detailed the mental and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of a former boyfriend.
"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 on IG.
Now fans have identified her abuser as 'Mo Bamba' rapper Sheck Wes, and the Roc Nation singer seemed to cosign that theory by favoriting a Tweet fingering Shek.
Here's her initial 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
Here's the evidence it was Shek:

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
Here's how she responded to her fans outing Sheck.
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.— Justine Skye (@JustineSkye) November 18, 2018
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
