What we know about the abuse allegations:

Allegations of drug abuse:

The couple has been together since before his career took off and they have two children together.

Emtee has been open about his struggles with addiction in the past but says he is now sober. He alleged that his former partner was abusive because he was not making enough money and times were tough because he could not perform due to the lockdown.

More allegations have come to light. Some people claimed that his statements of abuse were false, saying his partner was actually trying to save the relationship but Emtee’s “drug abuse” was hampering their lives.

Emtee shut down those suggestions.

‘Pray for Emtee’

There was a top trending hashtag on Twitter on Wednesday after he alleged that he was abused. Many people showed their support for the hip hop star and highlighted that men experienced domestic violence too.

Others, however, discredited his claims due to the prevalence of gender-based violence on women in the country.

He is a single man

Emtee has made it clear that he is a single man now, after a couple of tweets detailing the alleged abuse. The rapper said he was no longer in a relationship with the mother of his two sons.


The new album

In the midst of his private life being made public, Emtee is preparing for the release of his new album Logan. It is in conjunction with his highly anticipated single release iThemba.

Nicole responds

Although she could not be reached for comment, Nicole released a statement on her private Instagram page responding to Emtee’s allegations.

She claimed that Emtee was lying and trying to “tarnish” her character.
