Sha’Carri Richardson’s ex-girlfriend, Janeek Brown admits abusing the Olympic track star.
Sha’Carri shared her abusive relationship with the Jamaican hurdler in an Instagram post.
The 22-year-old Olympic sprinter said she’s healing emotionally from the emotional trauma, including homophobia, that she experienced in her relationship with Janeek.
Sha’Carri wrote about her emotional pain in a social media post.
“I was in a relationship with a Jamaican athlete that never cared about me from jump,” she wrote.
“I was abused and stole from yet protected her from the judgment of her country & family while they dragged me. I had to deal with homophobic [sic] and so much more that I’m still healing from.”
Sha’Carri and Janeek dated for at least a year before their bitter breakup. Janeek (left) is pictured comforting teammate Megan Tapper in October 2019.
The Kingston, Jamaica native took to Instagram to deny the allegations as “complete lies.”
Janeek directed a message to Sha’Carri in her native patois, warning her not to take her kindness for weakness.
“Don’t take mi bomboclaath kindness fi weakness,” she wrote. “Pay mi fi mi bomboclaath ting if yuh ago tek it, give mi a likkle portion.” Translation: “Pay me for my [expletive] thing if you’re going to take it, give me a small portion.”
But in an interview, Janeek confirmed she abused Sha’Carri.
“I was abusive once that there’s physical evidence of,” she said. “And we moved on, and even after then I was trying to move on from that, we still got nowhere.”
“Yeah, I was going through something – I was finding myself, that’s why I am coming to social media, you feel me?” she said. “So yeah, it’s a transformation; I’m going to find myself now. I may look different now.”
Janeek, who is working through her mommy issues, said her mother pushed her into being a track & field star. She said she is done with track & field.
As for her love life, Janeek said she is working on finding herself, and if God sends her another woman, she won’t make the same mistakes she made with Sha’Carri.
