The exotic dancer who was with rapper Trouble DTE when he was killed by her ex-boyfriend is speaking out.

Rissa Royce was in her apartment with Trouble when he was fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend, Jamichael Jones, earlier this month in Conyers, Georgia.

Royce deleted her Instagram page in the days following Trouble's death. Over the weekend, she returned to Instagram to comment about Trouble's death in an Instagram Story.

"It took a lot for me to put my page back up," she wrote.

"I don't like the evil things that's being said about me all the false narratives, & the threats, I don't have nothing to prove to social media to the ones that know me personally know my heart is gold & my story will be told... this situation has mentally messed me up & traumatized me. God got me... [long live] Trouble. My Angel."

According to court documents, Royce and Jones, also an aspiring rapper, broke up a week before Trouble's murder, after Jones punched her in the nose during an argument.

Royce allegedly posted a photo of the bloody crime scene on her Instagram page. The photo was reposted on social media.

Trouble was laid to rest in Decatur, Georgia on Monday, June 13.

In addition to family members and fans, dozens of Bloods gang members were in attendance wearing matching red suits and red bandanas.

Rapper Boosie Badazz was overcome with emotion as he spoke at Trouble's funeral.

"I wanna tell Trouble thank you," he said as he wiped away tears. "He always supported me... I'm hurting for y'all because I'm hurting for five years. You know, I wasn't with him thirty years, you know. So, I just wanna tell that ni**a thank you."

Sources close to the former stripper say Trouble was a "sneaky link" who Rissa was seeing on the low before she broke up with her ex-boyfriend, Jamichael Jones who punched her in the nose during an argument last week.

According to, "a sneaky link can be a sexual or non-sexual experience that nobody knows about. (It usually is a sexual experience)."

Sources say Trouble was the reason behind the break up, and that Rissa sent Jones a text message telling him she was out of town and he should come over and get his belongings from the apartment they shared.

Jones went to the apartment at 3 a.m. Sunday and let himself in with his key. He woke Rissa up by punching her in the face. Then, according to sources, Trouble jumped up and grabbed his gun. During the scuffle the gun discharged, striking Trouble in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jones, 33, surrendered to the police on Tuesday, after his mom put him on the phone with an investigator.

Meanwhile, Trouble was in a relationship with another woman, who has forgiven him for being at the apartment of an aspiring rapper/stripper.

"He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. I'll never be mad at him for this. I'm hurt he didn't survive," she captioned a screenshot of a CBS reporter's tweet.

"The bond we had was one of a kind & I'll cherish the memories forever. What we had most people wouldn't understand & we never cared to explain. But anything worth havin at all is worth working for & waiting for & I promise it was worth the wait. The time we spent together was the best moments of my life."

Trouble also dated reality TV star Alexis Skyy and R&B singer Monica.

Ironically, Trouble found himself in the very same scenario that he warned young men about.

The Atlanta rapper was fatally shot by the ex-boyfriend of a woman he was visiting in Conyers, Georgia early Sunday.

The woman told police she and Trouble were asleep in her apartment when her ex Jamichael Jones woke her up with a punch to the face and began fighting with Trouble. When she jumped in to help Trouble, Jones pulled a gun and shot him point blank in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
