Throughout his breakthrough year, XXXTentacion has faced allegations of domestic abuse by strangulation, false imprisonment, aggravated battery of a pregnant woman as well as charges of witness-tampering. Pitchfork has now obtained a 142-page transcript of the reported victim’s testimony, in which she describes in horrifying detail the alleged instances of the rapper’s repeated domestic violence.
The excerpt details the alleged violence that began after the reported victim agreed to move into XXXTentacion’s apartment in May 2016. Two weeks later, the woman said the rapper (born Jahseh Onfroy) slapped her and smashed her iPhone 6S because she complimented a male friend about his new jewelry. The alleged cruelty continued, according to the deposition.
From Pitchfork: Later that day, XXXTentacion left the room and returned with two grilling implements—a “barbecue pitchfork” and a “barbecue cleaner,” she said—and told her to pick between them, because he was going to put one of them in her vagina. She chose the fork. He told her to undress. He was lightly dragging the tool against her inner thigh when she passed out. He did not penetrate her with it.
