popular model and blogger danii phae bravely shared images of her alleged abuse by ex-boyfriend j$tash. in a tumblr post, she described him as someone who abused her “verbally, mentally and emotionally.” according to danii he became physically violent on september 15th after she confronted him regarding his infidelity.
my heart goes out to this young sister who is facing such a difficult struggle. her courage is beyond commendable, especially because her popularity gives her every reason to hide her abuse. instead, she’s using the very platform that helped make her famous, the internet, to empower others and “speak up against domestic violence for those who can’t due to the manipulative acts [their] abusers inflict.”
