“What I’ve been going through, the average person doesn’t go through that in a whole lifetime. 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 continued.
Latisha said the abuse she suffered under the hands of Majah Hype were physical as well as emotional and psychological.
“Imagine having to hide your bruises, and you’re being battered from your family, imagine after being abused and assaulted, you have to console the person that hurt you because now they’re distraught. They want to harm themselves. 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 unrecognisable…”
Latisha became emotional as she revealed that she received no support from close friends who knew about that she was being abused by the comedian, “Imagine people know in your circle what’s going on with you and their first question is ‘well what did you do,’” She said.
