Justine Skye Requests Restraining Order Against Sheck Wes [UPDATE]
Earlier this week, Skye accused Wes, her former boyfriend, of physical abuse. She also said the “Mo Bamba” rapper and others recently jumped her friends. “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 … You’re pathetic sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again,” Skye tweeted.
Wes, who is signed to Interscope through a joint venture with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music and Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack, denied the allegations in a series of tweets, writing in part: “I’ve chosen to remain silent until now out of respect for actual victims of abuse. But I cannot stand by while lies are repeatedly told about me. I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody.”
After Skye’s tweets, Major League Soccer announced Wes would no longer appear in a forthcoming advertisement produced by The Fader’s creative agency Cornerstone.
Update (2/17): Justine Skye has been granted a restraining order for domestic violence allegations stemming from altercations with her former boyfriend Sheck Wes, as The Blast reports. Wes has been ordered to stay 100 yards from the vocalist until their court hearing next month.
Spin has contacted Interscope for comment and will update this post if they respond.
