Learn about the recently emerging details of the alleged reports of abuse against comedian Majah Hype by his ex-girlfriend.
Reports have been emerging recently that comedian Majah Hype allegedly physically abused his former girlfriend. The accusations came from his former wife, Latisha Kirby, and this news has been making headlines on the Internet as of late.
Majah Hype gained popularity in 2012 as a comedian and social media star, widely recognized for poking fun at Caribbean culture and people. He used to have over 1.2 million followers on his Instagram account, but since the abuse accusations against him surfaced, he's lost 100,000 followers and dropped to 1.1 million followers as of this writing.
Majah Hype was recently hospitalized after he suffered a mild heart attack. But he recovered, and he is doing well now. Just after the incident, his ex-wife came forward with the allegations of physical abuse against the comedian, and since then, the topic has been making headlines.
Majah Hype's former wife, Latisha Kirby, made accusations that he abused her 'for a long time' during their relationship. She also went on to say that the abuse has affected her life adversely, and due to that, she began distancing away from her friends and family.
Majah Hype's ex-girlfriend has come forward with the allegations that he physically abused her during their relationship.
In a recent video, she made public, Latisha Kirby apologized to her friends and family for not being in touch with them. 'What I've been going through, the average person doesn't go through that in a whole lifetime,' she explained. 'I've been keeping it a secret for a long time. Hiding abuse is a full-time job. You have to detach yourself from your loved ones, so they don't know. I did that for a long time.'
'I protected someone that abused me for a long time, but tonight is about my healing, me taking my power back, and me no longer protecting the person that has been abusing me,' Latisha added.
She continued by explaining how the situation she was in did not help her to heal. She had to hide her bruises, distance herself from her family, and ironically console her abusive partner because he was distraught.
'They want to harm themselves,' Latisha Kirby said in the video. 'So now you don't have the chance to heal, you don't have the chance to be upset. Imagine after going through all those things, you still have to have sex, you're still expected to be delightful like there's nothing wrong with you when your face is unrecognizable.'

But his dreams of making it big in the music sector halted after the birth of his son when he was 19 years old.
Majah Hype took a job as an electrician and lived comfortably, making his living from the job for the next eight years. Afterward, he decided to do something more exciting rather than working a 9-5 job. So he began posting his own memes and later 15-second videos to Instagram.
Over time, Majah Hype began growing popular on social media, and his work began to get recognized. In 2012, he made a breakthrough in the comedy sector, and since then, he's been producing and starring in sketches online featuring impersonations of characters that poke fun at various stereotypes associated with Caribbean, Latin, and African-American cultures.
