Physical abuse towards women can be found in all walks of life. Young, old, famous or barely socially active women can all be hurt by partners who should have been protecting them. Celebrities can also be abused and SA singer Floda Grae's allegations is a tragic reminder.
South African singer and beauty Floda Grae married uKhozi FM DJ Ngizwe Mchunu in 2015 and was seemingly happy.
ZAlebs reports there were rumours of trouble in paradise relating to his two wives but everything seemed to have worked itself out.
Now the 'What you do' singer shared some of her private life on social media and it is rather disturbing news.
Floda claims Ngizwe was physically abusive towards her during their time together.
She shared the news on Instagram, but the posts have since been removed. Floda first addressed the people who knew about the abuse and kept quiet.
And to everyone I know who ignored my cries when I was getting beat up by a ni**a last year… I’ll never forget.
Then she named the person she claims was abusing her - Ngizwe Mchunu
Briefly.co.za learned from StatsSA that an alarming 1 in every 5 adult females has experience physical abuse in South Africa.
If Floda's claims are indeed true, it is hoped that she has supportive friends to lean on in this difficult time of her life.
