AceShowbiz - XXXTENTACION's documentary "Look at Me: XXXTENTACION" premiered on South By Southwest (SXSW). The documentary, which is about the life and career of the slain rapper, sees his mother having a sit-down with his then-girlfriend Geneva Ayala while addressing his assault against her.
"Everyone was like, you are ruining his career, but at the same time, I felt my whole life was ruined because nobody even cared," Ayala said. "After that I was homeless, I lived in a hotel almost a year after that. I was just trying to say what happened."
She went on to say, "If you are going to think I'm a liar, I'm a liar. How am I supposed to fight that? I'm only one person. It was a really dark moment for me. There was no way to stop it. He had the power to do all that."
When it comes to her relationship with the rapper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, Ayala said, "It was kind of a romantic feel in the beginning, it was a mesh of always taking care of each other and trying to better ourselves."
Later in the documentary, Onfroy's mom, Cleopatra "Cleo" Bernard, joined Ayala in a sit-down. While Onfroy, who was arrested on several charges related to an incident involving Ayala, his mom come to terms with it.
"A part of me took that and ran with it," she said. "That's my son, even if he' hitting her, that's my son. If he's a devil, that's my son, I birthed him. Wrong, right or indifferent I'm going to have his back no matter what. I'll always have his best interests at heart, protect her. Any mother would have done the same thing."
She went on telling Ayala, "My son is no longer here, and I feel like it's up to me now to make amends and try to right his wrongs as much as I can... I would actually like to hear you tell your story because like I said, my son died, and he's never admitted it to me-I don't think he would want me to see him in that light or know that side of him."
"Jahseh was wrong for what he did. There's no excuse for that, period. But I just want the world to know that he wasn't that same person anymore, but the past is still part of his story," she added.
Of Ayala, Bernard said, "I'm not going to hate her. And my son is not here, and I don't think she should be mistreated in any way. This is about his legacy, and she was the love of his life, and she was a part of that legacy."
XXXTentacion was murdered during a robbery back in 2018. He was fatally shot near a motorcycle dealership in Deerfield Beach, Florida. He was 20.
