Last month a video of XXXTENTACION made rounds online that showed the rapper hitting a woman. The video was old but the alleged victim said she was scared to put it out prior to this. However, XXX is now suing the woman for fraud and defamation.
In the lawsuit, the rapper claims the woman is lying about her initial statement and trying to extort him for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The “SAD!” rapper’s manager reached out to the woman, whose grandparents returned the call and told them what X needed to do to remedy the situation.
According to HipHopDX:
The woman’s grandparents reportedly said X threw a BB gun at the woman’s face prior to the slap seen in the clip. In the court doc, the Broward County, Florida native says she was threatening to hold a news conference about his frequent violence toward women.
The rap star is currently facing multiple charges for domestic violence including kidnapping and witness tampering.
