Melissa decided to speak out about the domestic violence she has suffered
On Wednesday, Benoist took a moment and shared a very lengthy and emotional video on Instagram and claimed that she endured months of abuse by her younger romantic partner.
In a video, she shared, “Yes, I am a survivor of domestic abuse, and this is something which I never expected in my life. She also tried explaining about the kind of violence she has faced off with. “I have been suffered from many major injuries and an extremely high level of trauma in my mind.” I felt the pain of beaten repeatedly, the pain when someone drags you from hair across the pavement, the pain of getting shoved into a wall so hard that drywall choked. I learn the pain of being alone all the time and suffering without saying anything. “But finally, I decided to shout out when I had a major injury when he threw an iPhone at my face.”
