Swae Lee’s ex-girlfriend, Marliesia Ortiz, claims that the Rae Sremmurd member is “verbally abusive” and expects her to stay around while he does whatever he wants.
In a video obtained by TMZ, Ortiz said that the rapper needs to realize that he’s a want and not a need.
“He’s definitely verbally abusive not in like the matter of belittling me as a person, but he definitely tells me, like, what’s a good example? Things I should stand for. What I should be okay with because of my position. How close me and him are. Nobody could take my place. I shouldn’t care about certain situations,” Ortiz said.
“I should just look over it. And it’s crazy because I know every guy in the industry says this to their girl or has other women that they talk to and like they are just okay with it. I would never act like I’m okay with something just to have someone in my corner. That’s really not who I am. He thinks he’s a need a not a want. He needs to realize he’s a want. I’m just really over it because I want him to realize that there’s nobody else in the world who is as down as me…It’s really not worth it to me anymore.”
During a recorded Facetime conversation between the two, Lee is heard saying,” I f***ing love you and you’re going to be my f***ing wife one day if we can make it through all of this dumb sh** bro.”
He then goes on to tell Ortiz that Chance the Rapper’s and Gucci Mane’s wives were just “down b**ches” for the rappers through “thick and thin”.
“Gucci was f***ing a billion hoes not even talking to his b****. And she still pushed through all of that sh** and came back around for that n****. Chance The Rapper, broke as f***. B****es still holding it down. You don’t get it. You still think like high school bro,” he concluded before the video cut off.
Ortiz also has a tweet from January 10 that she shared pinned to her Twitter account that reads, “Must suck to lose ur homie lover and best friend over a lil quick feeling provided by someone you have no bond with.”
