Recently we got sent this picture to one of our private accounts of Jasmine Villegas after her abuse. The picture shows Jasmine with a black eye given to her by her ex-boyfriend whom we will be calling “sushi” for now. The picture is very emotional for us, because we are jasminators. It’s just hard to think that such a beautiful person could be drastically abused like this. Some of you have been asking really good questions such as:
1. How did Jasmine hide the abuse so well when she hangs out with her bro & friends like on a daily basis wouldn’t someone have saw the bruises and asked questions?
2. What happened in Jasmine’s life to make her think that “sushi” abusing her was okay or her fault?
3. Was that real footage of Jasmine being abused in her ‘Didn’t Mean It’ music video?
Well we can’t answer those questions. Jasmine obviously wasn’t thinking clearly or as some jasminators joke she must have been drunk & smoking hookah for most of that relationship. We’re just glad Jasmine is out of that relationship. No girl deserves that ever!
We look back at all the pictures and tweets of the happy relationship, and we were all fooled. We saw Jasmine and “sushi” appearing to be in love like some fairytale. We all “oohed” and “ahhhed” at what appeared to be happiness. We watched them hang out with other couples not ever thinking what lay beneath the surface.
Truth is “sushi” was just a leech trying to ride his way to fame. He had no real fans before dating Jasmine. He saw a chance to make it out of the land of irrelevance and he took it. This situation won’t bring down Jasmine or harm her career in anyway. On the contrary, it will make people realize just how strong she is and makes her fans love her anymore. The things that Jasmine has been through makes her more real to her fans and others. She had the courage to walk away from a bad situation and we respect that. Keep your head up Jasmine like nothing can bring you down, because it can’t!
Looks like Jasmine got a taste of some bad sushi and she’s telling everyone to look out!
