Nia Riley shares alarming details about her previous relationship with Soulja Boy.
During an interview with Tasha K, she alleges the rapper kicked her out while 13 weeks pregnant and held a gun to her head.
“I wanted to leave. I was trying to leave,” said Nia Riley. “I had pepper-sprayed him one day, really bad. He tried to take a shower. And it f***ed him up really bad. I want to say it was the same day. He had charged at me. So I pepper-sprayed him. I had it under my pillow.”

She also shares that when she attempted to leave, the “Crank Dat” rapper pointed a gun at her head.
“His barber came after our whole little incident. So I said, ‘I know this n****’s haircuts take like an hour.’ I’m trying to make sure he couldn’t see me from certain mirrors. And I packed my bag,” continued Nia Riley. “It’s a crazy situation to try to get out f. So I was just sitting there, watching, watching, watching. He hadn’t moved. He didn’t get up for nothing. I got up, got my bag. I walked downstairs. And I felt him press it [the gun] against the back of my head. And I just sat down. I sat on the steps for a couple hours. He was sitting behind me.”
The 31-year-old daughter of legendary producer, Teddy Riley also shares that Soulja Boy’s friends would never speak up or intervene.
“He had friends there that would sit there and watch I’m. Nobody ever said anything,” said Nia Riley. “It was just crazy. It was something that was private and just us if we were home. But if his friends were there, he didn’t care. They didn’t do anything. No one did anything. I won’t say they all enable each other but that’s how it feels.”
Soulja Boy and Nia Riley dated from 2013-2019. Recently, a former assistant accused the rapper of sexually assaulting her on several occasions and also held her against her will.
During the interview, Nia Riley spoke on the accusations.
“I hate the jokes sometimes. It’s not a funny situation,” she expressed. “These are people coming out saying he’s done this and that and people don’t believe it….Any time a guy is put on blast for doing something like this, I don’t think it’s taken seriously. Or the victims are made out to be liars or you just want money. Why you just now saying something? That’s not fair. They’re victims but they’re tuned into villains.”
Nia Riley says she needed time to heal before revealing her story.
“There was no support for me… I’ve been silent and to myself for a long time,” she said. “But I needed my moment to heal. And I’m there.”
We commend Nia Riley for bravely speaking out and pray she continues to heal.
