Problematic rapper Soulja Boy, born DeAndre Cortez Way, has been accused by an anonymous ex-girlfriend of domestic abuse so violent that it resulted in her having a miscarriage.
Identifying herself as Jane Doe, the woman claims in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (May 11) by attorney Neama Rahmani that she and the “Crank That” rapper began an on-and-off relationship in 2007 and became more serious from 2014 to 2019 before she could “no longer stand the abuse.”
The lawsuit reads,
(Jane Doe) and (Way) first began their on-and-off romantic relationship in 2007. They restarted their relationship in a more serious capacity in 2014 until mid 2019 when (Doe) could no longer withstand (Way’s) constant abuse.
It took her years to escape the psychological and physical grasp of her abuser.Attorney Rahmani told USA TODAY.
The lawsuit claims that one day, they were having a conversation when it turned violent.
During their conversation, (DeAndre Cortez Way) began to punch (Doe) in the face and chest, until she could no longer stand on her feet.
She fell down and curled her body to protect her stomach, and Way allegedly continued to kick her all over her body, including her stomach.”Soon thereafter, (Doe) suffered a miscarriage and was unable to carry her pregnancy into full term.
In other incidents, she alleges Soulja Boy was extremely violent, even forcing her to engage in sexual acts threatening her with physical harm if she doesn’t.
“She claims there were other violent incidents. Like in 2017 … Jane says Soulja flew into a violent rage … punching her in the face and breasts. She says things got so bad Soulja’s security had to pull him away from her. She claims Soulja was pissed because he thought she was leaving him.
She says a 2018 incident was caught on camera. Jane claims a conversation turned violent as he stood over her and began to physically attack and yell at her. She claims the night vision cameras used on the show captured the incident, which later aired on the WeTV network in early 2019.
She also points to an alleged incident in 2019 when she claims he “tightly gripped” her neck and choked her while threatening her life after she rebuffed his efforts to rekindle the relationship.
Jane claims during the course of their relationship, he would coerce her to engage in sexual acts through the threat of physical violence. She claims he subjected her to physical assault if she refused.”
Soulja Boy is being sued for domestic violence, negligence, sexual battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress and gender violence.
