As the Hip-Hop community continues to mourn the untimely and shocking death of 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion, the gory details about his past and past relationship are coming to light. As a result, XXX’s ex-girlfriend, Geneva Ayala, has received an influx of of monetary support to help with medical bills following the multiple attacks she endured throughout her relationship with the MC formally known as Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy.
In 2016, the Florida-bred rapper was charged with a plethora of felony charges including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness tampering. Some charges even stem from abuse towards his ex-girlfriend, Geneva Ayala, who alleges the now late rapper attacked her “every three or for days” since the beginning of their relationship, which happened to start in 2016.
The 20-year-old MC was awaiting trial with more than a dozen felony charges hanging over his head, including aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and witness tampering, according to a report obtained by Pitchfork.
Although the former couple indulged in an extremely volatile relationship, Ayala turned to social media to tell followers she’s “broken” following XXTentacion’s death. She even posted a message directed towards XXX, which said, “i want to scream at the top of my lungs until i can’t then keep screaming. i don’t want to believe this. no one knows. the sh-t. i feel. for you.”
it’s disgusting that people are speaking for me. i don’t care if no one cared about me however many months ago, i didn’t lose my life. he did. it’s permanent. i’m still here. like how do you think that makes me feel? everyone expecting me to be relieved or happy?! no, i’m broken.

While many feel for Ayala’s loss, not everyone believes her pain. In fact, she was told to leave the vigil held in Jahseh’s name. XXX fans went as far as burning the gifts she brought to the vigil to let her know her presence wasn’t welcome.
But the eruption of hate hasn’t stopped the public from listening to Ayala’s story.
XXX’s ex-girlfriend launched a GoFundMe page in October 2016 in hopes of raising money to cover her extensive medical bills following her abuse.
In the beginning, donations and support was sporadic and slow. But after a story ran in the Miami New Times, where Ayala identified herself and came forward to tell her story, the Florida resident quickly accumulated more than $12,000 in donations nearly overnight. Since XXXTentcion’s murder, Geneva has now received more than $36,000 to cover medical costs including eye surgery. One donor went as far as supporting Geneva with a generous $11,000 gift.
