Nia Riley Breaks Her Silence After Soulja Boy’s Physical Attack2 months ago by Amber Le in TV News, Trending
It’s a little disheartening when domestic abuse survivors come out and tell their story or even witnessing it will have people questioning the victim instead of the abuser. Soulja Boy and Nia Riley have had their fair share of relationship problems publicized from their VH1 Love & Hip Hop Hollywood days. Now, the two have joined the cast of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. Earlier in the week, footage leaked from what seems to be a survelliance camera in the house with Riley screaming as Soulja was seen pouncing on top of her.
The clip showed a verbal argument turned physical as Soulja claims that she embarrassed him on television. Riley quickly clapped back and told him to stop talking which resulted in him jumping on her in an attempt to grab her cell phone from her grasp. She started panicking and screaming, waking up the entire household. The other cast members came barging in to check on their castmate. The clip ends with Tammy Rivera’s statement, “We all in this together, so I was ready to beat Soulja a** if I had to.”
Soulja Boy was then taken aside and was scolded by several producers, hosts and therapists when it came to his behavior. But get a load of this, Riley is the one that’s actually receiving hate comments regarding the situation where followers were insinuating that she purposely threw on the dramatics for ratings. She responded back with her side of the story.
“I would never fake any form of an abusive relationship on TV. I’m not an actress and that sh*t is NOT cute. He was not concerned about a damn phone. He was mad AF I was talking to him how he talks to me and tried to attack me then remembered them cameras were there.”

This is why it’s difficult for domestic abuse survivors to speak out because so many of you have so much to say without knowing the situation or ever coming close to being in a similar one.
