Sha'Carri Richardson Said She Was In An Abusive Relationship With A Female Athlete
American sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson said she's trying to heal from emotional trauma after being in an abusive relationship, according to The Source. On her Instagram, she said she also experienced homophobia in her relationship with an unknown Jamaican athlete.
"I was in a relationship with a Jamaican athlete who never took care of me from the jump," the 22-year-old shared on her Instagram Stories. “I was abused and robbed but protected them from the judgment of their country and family while they dragged me. I had to deal with homophobia and so much more that I'm still healing from."
Richardson continued her story with a meme that seemed to reveal more about the relationship, Aceshowbiz reports.
"I don't understand how someone can just walk out of your life and not care about you anymore," the post reads.
She also released Fetty Wap's song "The Truth" and highlighted a lyric that says, "and I'm tellin' the truth."
"It feels great to live in my truth," she wrote.
She also posted a photo of herself with her ex before taking it down.
Richardson rose to fame after qualifying for the Tokyo 2021 Olympics. As Blavity previously reported, all eyes were on the sprinter after she ran the 100m in 10.87 seconds, shocking the world and earning a place on the Olympic team.
She was later disqualified from the Games for failing a drug test. The runner admitted to using marijuana after learning of her mother's death.
The 22-year-old has since recovered with brand deals as she continues her sporting career. According to FloTrack, Richardson surpassed her stunning 2021 100-meter time, covering the distance in just 10.3 seconds.
