Jasmine V arrives at the 7th Annual “Stars & Strikes” Celebrity Bowling and Poker Tournament benefiting A Place Called Home held at PINZ Bowling & Entertainment Center on Wedneday (March 6) in Studio City, Calif.
The 18-year-old singer shared, “What gave me the courage to leave was honestly God. It got to the point where my self-esteem was so low that I actually started believing it was my fault and that I deserved it. In my weakest moment, God sent me an angel who put a stop to everything.”
“In one of our more severe fights, there was a random stranger outside the house who heard the fighting and called the police. When the cops came I knew it was probably going to be my only escape. That’s when I broke down and realized how dangerous my situation was and I got the strength to walk away from the relationship and NEVER LOOK BACK,” she added.
Jasmine also shed the light on Love Is Respect and urged those in situations like her own to call.
“My advice is that if you are in or know someone that’s in an abusive relationship it NEVER gets better. I tried to believe that things would change for the better but it only got worst. My advice would be to go to organizations like Love Is Respect and research online how you can get help. There’s also a hotline number you can call 24 hrs a day 1-866-331-9474 to speak to someone who can help you. You can also text ‘loveis’ to 77054. Overall just remember that you have to take action and get out! You can’t ignore the situation, it will not go away.”
