AceShowbiz - Sha'Carri Richardson's love life apparently was as successful as her career. The track and field sprinter took to her Instagram account to open up about being in an abusive relationship with a female Jamaican athlete.
In a now-deleted post, the 22-year-old star shared that she used to be "in a relationship with a Jamaican athlete that never cared about me from jump." The athlete went on to say, "I was abused and stole from yet protected her from the judgment of her country & family while they dragged me."
Sha'Carri also revealed that she "had to deal with homophobic and so much more that I'm still healing from." Along with her message, she posted a meme that read, "I don't understand how someone can just walk out of your life and not care about you anymore."
The Dallas native additionally uploaded Fetty Wap's "The Truth" in a separate slide. "Feels amazing living in my truth [smiling halo emojis]," she shared. The track and field star also posted a photo of herself with her ex before she eventually took it down.
Sha'Carri was a rising star before she was caught in a marijuana scandal prior to Tokyo Olympics last year. She was disqualified from the 2021 Tokyo Olympics for smoking marijuana. Not stopping there, she gained herself some haters after she offended people by liking an offensive tweet which read, "Not y'all Jamaicans still talking s**t when y'all gotta walk barefoot to your coconut stand everyday for a living."
At one point, she also appeared to be beefing with Usain Bolt after he tried to give her some advice following her scandal. "I would tell Sha'Carri to train harder and to be focused and not say too much," he said in an interview back in September. "If you talk that big talk you have to back it up. So just train hard and focus on that and try to come back do it and then talk about it."
He also commented on Sha'Carri slamming runners from his home country Jamaica. "Jamaicans were vexed because she was talking a lot of s**t before the actual race, it is just one of those things," he claimed. "Jamaicans don't like when people talk s**t about us because we are a very proud people. So if you talk about us we are gonna want you to back it up. It definitely gave those women the extra push [to win]."
Seemingly firing back at Usain, Sha'Carri reposted a message that read, "Everybody want to give advice in the media but none of them actually take the time to speak to her outside the media. So I feel her. Stop speaking on me when you don't even speak to me." In her own post, Sha'Carri wrote, "Good 'humbling' Morning to y'all. I could not have said it better myself."
