Angela Simmons declined to name her ex-boyfriend who laid hands on her in the past.
During an earlier interview with The Breakfast Club, Angela said, “I’ve firsthand dealt with abuse and never really spoke out about it and I know there are a lot of women that are stuck.”
The single mom-of-one recently sat down with Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee to discuss her past abuse.
The 33-year-old Virgo didn’t name her abuser but she shared the level of abuse she was subjected to.
“Well, hands thrown, hands used. I wouldn’t say punched, but hands used and things thrown at me and stuff like that,” she said. “Enough where there were bruises.”
She added: “It wasn’t okay and it definitely wasn’t right and you know, I knew when enough was enough. Just after a while, being afraid, being scared, that’s not fun. There’s so many different things that you finally [makes you decide] this isn’t for me.”
When pressed to name the person who abused her, Angela said, “I would never speak on names.”
Though she claimed to be a virgin several years ago, Angela has been romantically linked to rappers Bow Wow and Romeo Miller, singer Lloyd, reality TV star Rob Kardashian, and her late ex-fiancé, Sutton Tennyson, the father of her son, Sutton Joseph.
Angela is best known for appearing in her father, Rev. Joseph Simmons, reality TV show Run’s House. She is the niece of entertainment mogul Russell Simmons.
