RAPPER SOULJA BOY FACES NEW DOMESTIC ABUSE ALLEGATIONS FROM FORMER PARTNER. The musician is being accused of sexual and physical abuse
May 11, 2021
The rapper known as Soulja Boy is facing new sexual battery and domestic abuse allegations from a woman he allegedly used to be in a relationship with.
The woman, known as "Jane Doe," claims she had a long-term romantic relationship with Soulja, whose real name DeAndre Cortez Way, and during that time he sexually and physically abused her.
According to the docs obtained by Fox News, Doe filed a new civil lawsuit Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
In the docs, she claimed that that the musician, 30, "threatened her life and engaged in other forms of domestic violence during and after they lived together."
One time, Doe alleges the abuse was so severe she miscarried and "sustained permanent damage to her reproductive organs."
She claims that sex was often nonconsensual and if she refused, Way would allegedly resort to physical acts of violence. One time, Doe alleged Way pointed a gun at when she talked about him being unfaithful.
Doe says that she and her daughter would allegedly see many other women enter and leave the shared home. Then, when she raised concern, Way threw her out.
"Our client is fortunate she was able to escape Way’s reign of terror and domestic abuse," her lawyer Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, said in a statement obtained by Fox News.
"Still, she struggles to rebuild her life as she deals with the stress, fear and humiliation she continues to suffer from the years she remained Way’s emotional and mental captive. She worries about her daughter’s security and safety and about her ability to re-establish her career. How many women’s lives will Way ravage before he is held accountable? We plan for it to end here," the statement concluded.
A rep for Soulja Boy did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment.
The musician has a lengthy criminal record. According to reports, he has been arrested more than once for possessing a firearm. TMZ also reported that the rapper was arrested in early 2020 for assaulting an ex-girlfriend. The ex reported the assault to the police, who reportedly found him in violation of probation after raiding his home and finding guns.
