A woman claiming to be Soulja Boy’s ex-girlfriend and personal assistant filed a lawsuit with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, accusing him of sexual assault and physical abuse.
The alleged victim, identified as Jane Doe, says Soulja Boy raped and assaulted her for nearly two years. According to the lawsuit, the rapper began sending her unsolicited photos of his penis a month after getting hired in December 2018.
She admitted that the two developed a consensual relationship and she moved in with him. However, the romance turned violent by January 2019 after she was allegedly pushed out of Soulja Boy’s vehicle and forced to walk five miles.
Jane Doe claims the rapper sexually assaulted her for the first time in February 2019 and paid her $1,000 after expressing his remorse. The accuser also claimed that he spit on her in May 2019, when she expressed her desire to quit.
The lawsuit described Soulja Boy as jealous and would punch, kick, and body slam her and allegedly told her, “I should have killed you.” Furthermore, Doe claims that on multiple occasions she was locked in a room with no mattress, food, or water.
According to the accuser, the sexual assaults would sometimes occur twice a day. However, after one violent attack in August 2020, she moved out. But when she returned to collect her belongings the following month, she was allegedly raped again. The lawsuit also claims Jane Doe wasn’t paid for most of the 18 months she was employed.
“Way’s treatment of our client, as an employee and as a person who deserves respect, has traumatized and filled her with fear,” said attorney Neama Rahmani. “His abuse imprisoned her physically, mentally, and emotionally. When she mustered the courage to flee, he impoverished her. His exploitation severely hampered our client’s ability to re-establish herself in the workplace and in society. We believe he should be held accountable.”
Jane Doe is suing for sexual battery, assault, false imprisonment, and infliction of emotional distress. Soulja Boy has denied the allegations.
