XXXTentacion Allegedly Confesses to Domestic Abuse and Stabbings in Secret Audio Tape
He reportedly detailed multiple crimes on the tape, authorities said.
Rapper XXXTentacion was reportedly caught on a secret tape confessing to beating his girlfriend and stabbing several people.
The 20-year-old, who was shot and killed in Florida in June, was facing charges of domestic violence, harassment and witness tampering at the time of his death.
Geneva Ayala, the star’s ex-girlfriend, claimed that throughout their relationship, the rapper — whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy — choked her, beat her and threatened to kill her. He pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The recording is thought to have been made around the time of the rapper’s arrest in October 2016 for the assault and false imprisonment of Ayala.
"I put my source of happiness in another person, which was a mistake initially, right? But she fell through on every occasion until now," Onfroy reportedly says in the tape, which was obtained by Pitchfork. “Until I started f***ing her up bruh. I started f***ing her up because she made one mistake. And from there, the whole cycle went down. Now she’s scared. That girl is scared for her life. Which I understand.”
In the tape, Onfroy reportedly goes on to say that he would “kill that b**** if she plays with him."
Also heard on the 27-minute tape is Onfroy's alleged confession to a stabbing that occurred in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was never arrested in connection with this stabbing, authorities said.
The rapper also allegedly admitted to stabbing his former manager, for which he was arrested in July 2014. He was released on bond afterward.
“The defendant makes admissions to multiple criminal acts in the recording,” Terry Gonzalez-Chavez, a spokeswoman for the Office of the State Attorney, told InsideEdition.com. “While both defense counsel and our prosecutor believed the tape had confessions of criminal activity on it, the tape would likely not have been admissible at trial because of the way it was recorded (without knowledge/consent of the other parties)."
