Jhene Aiko’s husband, music producer Dot Da Genius, was once pretty quiet about their breakup amid rumors that she cheated with her now alleged boyfriend, Big Sean. But now that he has been accused of physically abusing Jhene, he has spoken out for the first time.
He took to Instagram to set the record straight and shut down speculation that he was an abusive husband.
“In light of the public threats, false allegations, and attempts to slander my name and character, I am compelled to speak up,” he wrote Monday. “Because my nature is peaceful, I’ve been silent out of respect for all involved, and to maintain my privacy. However, I believe the truth must be heard, which is that I’ve never been violent or abusive towards any woman in my life.”
He added, “Such behavior is abhorrent to me and far from how I conduct myself. Moving forward, I will continue to focus on my family, friends, and music, and soon enough the entire truth shall come to light.”

It’s not clear how the abuse speculation swirled on the Internet, but another tweet from Dot Da Genius hinted that Jhene accused him of it in a tweet she has since deleted. One fan asked, “What if he didn’t actually beat her? That could explain why she deleted the tweets fast fast.” Dot replied with, “EXACTLY”
