Jimi Ono aka Melissa Lingafelt was born on December 20, 1989, and from North Carolin, USA. She is a Musician, American beauty pageant titleholder, Model, Singer, Songwriter, and Voice Actor.
In the mid of August, she alleged her Ex-Boyfriend Drake Bell of abusing her on TikTok video on Wednesday, in the video she said: “First off I’d like to start by saying, I don’t care if anyone believes me, as this is my story and my life, and something that I went through.”
“It wasn’t until recently that I realized that abuse isn’t something that all women have to go through.” Watch the video below.
This is my truth. I hope this message reaches young girls, and that no one has to go through what I did. #2020survivor
Furthermore, in the video, she explained she started dating Drake at the age of 16 and moved in with him. However, after a year she said the verbal abuse started. Jimi said, Quote “And when I say verbal abuse, imagine the worst type of verbal abuse you could ever imagine, and that was what I got.”
Jimi revealed verbal abuse turned into physical and hitting, she said. At one point during their relationship, Drake dragged her down some stairs in their home and their relationship lasted from August 2006 to February 2009.
Later, she took to Instagram stories and wrote “Everyone that knows me and has been a friend of mine for the past 15 years, know all too well of the abuse that Drake Bell put me through. I have so many witnesses, I have Photos, it was life,” she said.
She added, ” If you don’t believe me, it is clear to me what type of person you are, and I don’t need that on my side. Nobody wants attention from abuse!!!!!.”
“I hope this gives girls the strength to come out about their experiences with him because I know for a fact he has hundreds of victims.” Furthermore, Jimi said “I don’t even want to get into the underage girl’s thing,” and “I mean I will, but I’m scared.”
Then, she uploaded two more videos on TikTok which shows the screenshot of others posting their story.
Drake told to People, “Never abused my ex-girlfriend or did so many of the other things Melissa falsely claimed on her TikTok video.” Later, he added “As our relationship ended more than a decade ago we, unfortunately, both called each other terrible names, as often happens when couples are breaking up. But that is it.”
Then, he told the publication that last year Jimi reached out to him for financial support, “I do not know if today’s behavior is some kind of misguided quest for more money or attention. But I cannot and will not allow these offensive and defamatory allegations to go unchallenged and I am reviewing my legal options.”
