The death of rapper XXXTentacion in Miami has prompted a new investigation into a string of domestic abuse allegations leveled against him.
Here’s what we know about his ex-girlfriend Geneva Ayala and her relationship with the 20-year-old artist, as revealed in a documentary.
About Geneva Ayala
Geneva Ayala is the ex-girlfriend of rapper XXXTentacion, who was killed in a suspected robbery on June 18 in Miami, Florida.
During their relationship, she claimed the musician, whose true name was Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, physically and verbally abused her.
Geneva is two years older than Onfroy, according to the Miami New Times.
According to the New York Times, she moved in with her grandmother at the age of four and then returned with her mother at the age of twelve due to turbulent family life.
Geneva’s pregnant mother forced her to move out when she was 16 after she decided to live with her boyfriend.
Her connection with Onfroy apparently began after a previous ex-boyfriend allegedly tweeted an inappropriate photo of Ayala without her permission.
Onfroy insisted on battling her lover despite not knowing her, and the two met for the first time in November 2014.
They split up after four intensive days together and didn’t see each other again for another 18 months when their reportedly toxic relationship reappeared.
What did XXXTentacion’s ex-girlfriend have to say about his death and the charges of domestic violence?
After Onfroy’s death in 2018, Ayala wrote on Twitter: “It’s revolting that people are speaking on my behalf.
“I don’t give a damn if no one cared about me a few months ago; I didn’t die. Yes, he did.
“It’s not going away. I’m still around. How do you think that makes me feel, for example?
“Isn’t everyone hoping I’ll be relieved or happy? No, I’m shattered “..
She later claimed that the day after the rapper’s death, she was booted out of a vigil held in his honor.
She shared a photo of tributes she had brought to the site on Instagram, followed by another one of them that appeared to be burned.
“THEY BURNED THE S**T I LEFT THEY BURNED WHAT I BOUGHT FOR HIM IM SO MAD LIKE IM SCREAMING,” Ayala wrote.
When XXXTentacion was fatally shot outside a motorcycle dealership in Miami, he was awaiting trial for allegedly attacking Ms. Ayala.
Ayala described how she was tortured to five months of physical and verbal abuse in an interview with the Miami New Times published only days before his death.
During one fight, Ayala allegedly threatened to sexually assault her and said he would assault her “every three to four days.” “..
“His favorite thing to do was simply backhand my mouth,” she told the Miami New Times. That used to give me welts inside my mouth.”
He allegedly shattered her iPhone 6S two weeks after they moved in together in May 2016, after she complimented a male acquaintance on his jewelry.
According to a 142-page testimony published by Pitchfork, he threatened to puncture her vagina with a barbecue fork and held her head under flowing water in the bathtub on another occasion.
Ayala claims Onfroy hit, slapped, elbowed, strangled, and head-butted her with exceptional force in an alleged fury in October 2016.
He allegedly took her phone and locked her in a room for days before she escaped and denounced Onfroy to the authorities.
Onfroy was arrested the next morning by Sweetwater Police and charged with aggravated abuse of a pregnant victim, domestic battery by strangulation, false detention, and witness tampering.
Onfroy’s counsel provided a paper signed by Ayala on November 27, 2017, stating that she would not testify against him in court, later claiming that she was too afraid to do so.
Following one of the claimed attacks, Ayala launched a GoFundMe effort to raise the $20,000 needed to heal nerve damage and a fracture near her eye.
The page immediately accumulated a large sum of money, including $5,000 from Onfroy himself.
However, GoFundMe received reports within a week that Ayala had misrepresented the reason for her injuries, and the company removed the page and froze the funds.
The page was eventually reactivated after Ayala received more than $36,000 in donations from the general public.

XXXTentacion’s New Documentary
Look At Me, a documentary incorporating evidence from the late rapper’s family, was released on May 26, 2022, revealing facts of his problematic past, including the violent assault charges that he publicly rejected while living.
Sabaah Foloyan, the film’s director, stated that the documentary about the Florida musician would have to address “the good, the bad, and the ugly.”
“Women don’t have any motivation to mislead about abuse complaints,” she stated, supporting Ayala’s statements.
Ayala claimed she was “vilified” by members of X’s fanbase following his death, before the documentary’s publication.
“Everyone was like, you’re ruining his career,” she told The Daily Beast, “but at the same time, I felt like my whole life was gone because nobody even cared.”
“I was homeless after that, and I stayed in a hotel for over a year.” I was simply attempting to explain what had occurred. I’m a liar if you’re going to think I’m a liar.”
“How am I expected to combat that?” she continued. I’m just a single person. For me, it was a very dark time. There was nothing that could be done about it. He had the authority to do whatever.”
The film, according to the outlet, shows photographs of the then-19-year-old with the injuries she got during the claimed 2016 event, which include substantial bruises.
“I didn’t want anyone to go to jail,” Ayala continued, “but I didn’t know what to do.” I had no idea it was all going to come crashing down on him like that.”
On May 26, 2022, Hulu debuted Look at Me: XXXTentacion.
