Charges filed against Sheck Wes (real name Khadimou Rassoul Cheikh Fall) in Los Angeles by singer Justine Skye have been dropped. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office chose not to prosecute the case because of insufficient evidence. According to TMZ, the incident took place at the Montrose Hotel in West Hollywood in mid-July 2018.
In a February 2019 exchange with Sheck on Twitter, Skye described the incident. She wrote, “Did you forget about the time you launched my phone across the room at the Montrose hotel, slapped me in the face with money saying ‘get a new one bitch’, the two hotel security guards holding you back from attacking me while I ran away. The cops coming…”
Following the exchange with Sheck on Twitter, Skye documented her attempt to file charges at two different precincts in Los Angeles. On Instagram stories in February 2019, she wrote, “Different precinct now trying to file the last report but their rude, dismissive and disrespectful. Called me a ‘difficult victim’ when he wouldn’t even let me finish telling him what happened before he could give me a list of reasons as to why he couldn’t help me.”
In response to the decision, Skye’s team pointed out the she had been granted a restraining order against Wes that is currently still in effect. The statement added, “It is unfortunate that the Los Angeles District Attorney decided to not pursue any further action at this time but that is often the case with many victims of domestic violence which is why incidents like this go unreported much of the time.”
Niether Sheck nor anyone on his team has responded to the news.
Skye addressed the incident in a single called “Build,” released in October 2018. At that time, Skye chose not to expose Wes, though it was widely rumored it was him.
