In a shocking turn of events, Drake Bell has been accused of emotional and physical abuse by his ex-girlfriend, singer Jimi Ono aka Melissa Lingafelt. She made these claims on a video that she uploaded on TikTok and it has gone viral ever since. The singer revealed the details about their relationship and below is everything she said.
As per the video shared by Jimi Ono, she said that she does not care if anyone believes her story or not. Ono spoke about how she started dating Drake Bell when she was 16. A year later they decided to move in together. It was after this that the latter became abusive, as said in the video.
According to a report in Distractify, Jim Ono said, “I started dating Drake Bell when I was sixteen. I was homeschooled, I moved in with him. I was singing. It wasn’t until about a year when the verbal abuse started, and when I say verbal abuse, imagine the worst type of verbal abuse you could imagine and that’s what I got.”
“The verbal abuse then turned to physical. Hitting, throwing. Everything. At the pinnacle of it, he dragged me down the stairs in our house in Los Feliz, my face hit every step on the way down. I have photos of this,” Jim Ono added.
She also hinted at Drake Bell dating underaged girls. In the same video, she said, “I don’t even want to get into the underaged girls thing. I mean, I will. But I’m scared.”
In a screenshot shared by Ono later, she revealed a chat with her friend, in which she can be seen telling her how Drake Bell’s wife’s best friend told her to discredit the video.
