AceShowbiz - Rapper Sheck Wes plans to take legal action after R&B singer Justine Skye accused him of physically abusing and stalking her.
Justine shocked fans on Monday, February 11, by tweeting about an alleged incident she claimed took place when she was with her friends and her current boyfriend, fellow hip-hop star GoldLink, when Wes' friends approached her while he sat in a car.
"Taking a walk with my friends and my man and Sheck Wes (my abuser) and his friends decide to STALK US and attack my friends," she wrote, adding that he "beat women" and further alleging he had hit his girlfriend and would "do it again".
Sheck, real name Khadimou Rassoul Cheikh Fall, quickly denied her allegations on the social media site, and his management team have now issued a statement to Pitchfork Media saying they were "standing by him" and would be taking legal action.
"We are actively investigating the allegations against Sheck Wes and are fiercely standing by him through this," their missive reads. "He has denied any wrongdoing whatsoever or violence of any kind and we believe him. He will defend himself against this serious defamation of character with any and all legal remedies available and for now will leave this with the legal process."
The statement also called Justine's claims "wrongful allegations" and "attempts to assassinate his character".
Justine disputed the 20-year-old's initial denial, writing that she had footage of him climbing over a fence at her home while on his way to "attack" her. She subsequently posted a video of a man she claimed was Wes walking around the back of a home and jumping over a small fence.

You’re pathetic sheck and you beat women. You hit your girl before me and you’ll do it again— Justine Skye (@JustineSkye) 12 February 2019
Did you forget about the time you launched my phone across the room at the Montrose hotel, slapped me in the face with money saying “get a new one bitch”, the two hotel security guards holding you back from attacking me while I ran away. The cops coming... https://t.co/c1Z5vZitG3— Justine Skye (@JustineSkye) 12 February 2019
He did not deny that he was the man in the footage, but tweeted: "Just clarifying this is a video of me hopping a fence to get my stuff back from a girl who refused to give me my stuff. Once again for the record I never hit or beat up any woman."

The 23-year-old responded angrily to his latest denial, tweeting that he had acted "violently" during the incident at her home, and had also tried to attack her in a hotel. Justine previously claimed to have been a victim of domestic violence last year, but did not name her abuser.
