It appears that the woman who claimed to have been the victim of XXXTentacion's abuse will appear in one of his posthumous videos.
XXXTentacion's team released a teaser for his upcoming video, "Heart Eater." In the Instagram clip, the rapper's ex, Geneva Ayala, is eating a heart and covered in blood. At the top of the video is a voice memo in which XXX explained that he wanted to "include my ex in a weird way... I feel like tying her into it makes the video amazing and it almost, like, really captures everyone's minds and gives me the power that I truly deserve."
In June of 2018, Ayala detailed months of physical and verbal assault that took place in 2016 at the hands of the rapper to the Miami New Times. She claimed that XXXTentacion used threats of suicide to keep her in the relationship while subjecting her to various physical assaults. Shortly after the New Times' piece, Pitchfork released an audio recording of XXXTentacion in which he confessed to "fucking her up." "What nobody’s understanding, I put my source of happiness in another person, which was a mistake initially, right?” the late rapper said in the clip. "But she fell through on every occasion … until now. Until I started fucking her up, bro. I started fucking her up because she made one mistake. And from there, the whole cycle went down. Now she’s scared. That girl is scared for her life. Which I understand." Ayala also started a GoFundMe in hopes to gain $20,000 to repair optical nerve damage allegedly caused by XXXTentacion's abuse.
Currently, the "Heart Eater" video does not have a release date. But, it's expected to appear on the rapper's upcoming posthumous album, Bad Vibes Forever.
