Skeletons in seasoned artist’s closet
Confused Singer (CS) is tired of hiding skeletons in her family’s closet. Her mom, who used to be on the music scene, lets CS deal with her “issues” but is nonetheless concerned about CS’ safety, following the latter’s disastrous get-together with Easy-on-the-ear Musician (EM), the estranged famous father she didn’t grow up knowing.
Soon after CS finally crossed paths with her father, CS began complaining about physical and emotional abuse. Never mind the bruises—it got so bad that EM even ended up smashing CS’ head on a wall.
Is EM’s penchant for violence driven by booze? Or drugs? Or perhaps he just enjoys his power over hapless, subservient women …
Whatever the reason, EM could well be the poster child of the cyclical nature of Violence Against Women—and it’s just a matter of time before EM gets his comeuppance.
Even more disturbing, it looks like EM is a serial abuser.
A recent social media post by Raging Beauty (RB), EM’s current partner, also showed cuts and bruises. And RB says she’ll soon hold the culprit accountable for his actions. Abangan.
