The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office has declined a case against Sheck Wes due to "insufficient evidence," Billboard can confirm.  

The investigation stemmed from allegations by singer Justine Skye that Sheck Wes beat her while the two were at the Montrose Hotel in West Hollywood last summer. Skye went public with the allegations in February, tweeting that Wes stalked and attacked her and her friends. Wes denied the claims.

After learning that Sheck Wes won't face charges for the alleged incident, a representative for Skye gave a statement to Pitchfork.

"A judge in the Superior Court of California granted a restraining order against Sheck Wes that is still in effect and the correlating case is still pending," the statement reads. "However, it is unfortunate that the Los Angeles District Attorney decided to not pursue any further action at this time but that is often the case with many victims of Domestic Violence which is why incidents like this go unreported much of the time. At no time did anyone from the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office take a statement on the incident from Justine Skye or reached out to garner a statement which is unfortunate."

Billboard has reached out to a representative of Sheck Wes for comment.
