Sijara Eubanks releases statement on domestic abuse allegations
Sijara Eubanks took to Instagram, where she released a lengthy statement about the domestic abuse allegations and stated that it was her who was a victim of domestic abuse.
“For the last 5 years I have been in an abusive relationship. I have never said anything before because of my appearance and career, no one ever believed me. No one ever believed that someone like me could be a victim. So for years, I suffered emotion verbal and sometimes physical abuse at the hands of my now ex partner. I suffered in silence and often still managed a smile in public and still a decent professional career despite the trauma I faced at home. As many of you know I have a daughter with this person and she is the sole reason I stayed as long as I did,” Sijara Eubanks wrote.
“Sure enough the abuse slowly started to turn to my daughter and that’s when I had enough. Earlier this year I ended the relationship with this person and requested a custody arrangement. I knew my story would be hard to believe, but God is amazing and sent me an attorney who is fighting diligently for me and my daughter. I can’t get into the details because the legalities are still playing out,” the message from Eubanks continued.
“However I am confident in the protection of our Lord Jesus Christ over me my daughter and my family and I am confident in our judicial system. The truth will prevail and I will have my daughter back with me soon. She’s what matters to me most. I can deal with defamation and lies later, for now all I think about, all I work for everyday is the health and safety of my daughter. Mama will not stop fighting for you baby!! Thank you all for your continued love and support.”
