VIA Miami News Times:
XXXTentacion’s relatively short career has been a mixture of him battling legal woes and releasing hit records. The situation that has marred his career the most is the allegations of abuse against his former girlfriend. The Florida rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, has denied the accusations.

XXX opened up to the Miami New Times about his early life and his mother who told him “Give the girl three warnings; if she keeps hitting, you have to handle it,” when asked if he could hit a woman back. The next time a girl bothered him, Onfroy “slapped the sh*t out of her and kneed her,” noting how serious he took the statements of his mother, “Her word was my bond,” he said. He not only listened to his mother’s words, he also fought other students to get her attention. Perhaps his early life shaped him and led to the events described by his ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala, who also spoke with the New Times.

Ayala had a tumultuous life similar to Onfroy and was kicked out of the house by her mother at the age of 16. After a turbulent relationship with the boyfriend she lived with, she agreed to leave him and move in with Onfroy. According to Ayala, however, she went from one hell to another. Ayala claims she was often hit because of Onfroy’s jealousy.

In one instance he allegedly smashed her iPhone 6S and struck her in the face because she admired the new grills of a childhood friend. “I got slapped for no reason,” she says. Later that day, Ayala says, Onfroy hit her again. “I was really lightheaded because the slap was so hard,” she recalls. “It was one of those slaps where you hear ringing.” As she sat in a daze, Onfroy left the room and came back holding a long-handled barbecue fork and a wire barbecue brush. “He was like, ‘Which one do you want me to use?'” In a deposition given seven months later, she recounts to a prosecutor: “He told me to pick between the two because he was going to put one of them up my vagina.” She chose the fork then he pulled up her dress and dragged the fork against the skin of her thigh. Ayala passed out. He did not penetrate her.

Ayala decided not to leave Onfroy and moved with him to Orlando in late June 2016. The depositions entail a pattern of verbal and physical abuse every three or four days. According to Ayala’s statement, he beat her at times, choked her, broke clothes hangers on her legs, threatened to chop off her hair or cut out her tongue, pressed knives or scissors to her face, and held her head underwater in their bathroom while promising to drown her. He would also guilt her with near attempts at suicide. The abuse was often witnessed by Onfroy’s friends who reportedly did nothing to help according to Ayala and Talyssa Lee, who was dating one of Onfroy’s producers in 2016.

Despite the abuse, the two remained together and even began trying to have a child. Ayala eventually became pregnant, but she claims it did not stop the onslaught.

On the morning of October 6, 2016, while their roommates were out and Ayala was lying on Onfroy’s chest, he snapped. “He’s like, ‘You need to tell me the truth right now or I’ll kill you and this jit,'” Ayala says in her deposition, “the jit meaning child.”

For the next 15 minutes, she claims, Onfroy punched, slapped, elbowed, strangled, and head-butted her with unprecedented force. He had previously learned she had been with someone else when he was arrested in July for allegedly stabbing his new manager. She had briefly run away to Texas with the help of Lee and others but returned to Onfroy in September when he was released and placed on house arrest. During this last beating Ayala says her temples were swollen, her eyes were leaking, and she felt as if her head were “going to pop.” Around that time, she began to lose vision. She vomited. When the roommates returned, the beating continued, and she begged someone to take her to the hospital, but Onfroy forbade it. He dressed her in a pink hoodie and glasses, drove her to another home and kept her locked in a backroom for two days.

According to the deposition, at 2 am on October 8, after 30 straight hours of sleeping off her aches, Ayala left the room for the first time and went to the kitchen where she pretended to make Onfroy something to eat. She then opened the refrigerator as far as it could go to block his view of the kitchen and then escaped through a nearby side door.

The next morning, Sweetwater Police arrested Onfroy and later charged him with aggravated battery on a pregnant victim, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness tampering. He pleaded not guilty and bonded out for $10,000 but was soon detained by Broward for violating his house arrest.

Weeks later, Onfroy’s single “Look at Me!” which had been online for nearly a year, began to climb the charts with his now infamous mugshot circling the Internet.
