What’s done in the dark will always come to light.
Latisha Kirby, the ex-girlfriend of Caribbean comedian Majah Hype, whose real name is Colin Nigel McPherson, speaks on the alleged abuse she’s suffered for years.
According to Urban Islandz.com, Latisha jumped on Instagram Live to share a disturbing account of what it was like to be in a relationship with McPherson who is currently in recovery after suffering a mild heart attack last week. He says stress, over “certain things,” caused his heart attack.
Kirby describes an abusive on-again, off-again relationship with the Brooklyn-based comedian and starts the video off apologizing to her family and friends.
“I am going to start this Live off with an apology to my family,” said Kirby. “I want to apologize to my mother, my son, to my sister, my niece, to my friends. I detached myself from people that loved me the most for a long time. What I’ve been going through, the average person doesn’t go through that in their whole lifetime. And I’ve been keeping it a secret for a long, long time. Hiding abuse is a full-time job. You have to detach yourself from your loved ones so they don’t know… I protected someone that abused me for a long time.”
She’s reclaiming her power and says all the covering up and protecting McPherson stops now.

“You have a huge platform and you think that you can just destroy me,” she continued. “But I’m taking my power back tonight. It stops tonight. The slandering of my name, the abuse.”
“I’m not going into hiding like I did last time. The last time that I left, it was a huge bashing on social media about me,” Latisha revealed. “We’re not doing that again because I know the truth and I know why I left every time that I did. So moving forward, I pray that you guys respect my process and my healing journey because I’ve been through a whole lot. And it’s a whole lot of things being said that’s not true. And this is the truth. This is what I’ve been going through. People think they can do whatever to you because they are powerful and they are popular and I’m just a regular Brooklyn girl and I’m not taking that anymore. The abuse stops tonight. I’m taking my power back tonight. And I’m on a journey of healing and I feel good. I feel stronger than I did in years.”
McPherson has yet to address any of the allegations directly and has since posted Bible verses to his Instagram, likening himself to being crucified like Christ, reports MadameNoire.
