Florida rapper XXXTentacion, may not be able to get out of this one.
According to Complex, a video of the rapper hitting a girl upside the head has surfaced online.
See the video here.
Due to X’s hairstyle, you can tell that this is an older video.
X is currently in the middle of fighting a domestic violence case and this will definitely not work in his favor.
X’s lawyers have released a statement in regards to the leaked video:
“We have seen what purports to be an aged video and not that it is, at least, inconclusive as to whether any such ‘hitting’ actually occurred and when this alleged incident took place. Moreover, the actors in this video are obviously friends, and also obviously acting in jest. You should be also aware that we are advised that the woman in the video has been located and has admitted that that activity depicted was a ‘joke’ and not an ‘assault,’ something that can easily be determined from watching it.”
Personally, I don’t know what kind of ‘joke’ involves smacking a woman upside the head like that but then again, I don’t know their relationship.
All I know is this does nothing but hurt X and his defense.
